Hi everyone, I'm Solvejg, 43 years, living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I'm working as a productions coordinator, been at the same firm (but different positions) since 1988. Travelled first time on my own in 1978 (with friends for 4 weeks), since then I've travelled numerous times over Europe, lots of times on my own. Been travelling a bit in Asia and Indonesia for 3 months with my then 5-year-old son. Been to Thailand and Australia in 2001 and Australia won my heart, will definitely go back, had so little time and my boyfriend got ill and stayed in hospital first in Brisbane and then in Bangkok.

If I had the money I'd be travelling all the time, love it, manage to get away for week-ends 2-3 times a year and try to get away 3 weeks every summer. Those are the conditions when you stick to your job and try to be a good mother and keep your son in a good school which he enjoys;) Looking forward to retirement already

Do you need any info on Copenhagen or maybe other parts of Denmark, just let me know.

Hi everyone, greetings! :)I'm Don, 45 year old male from sunny Singapore. I've been travelling through Malaysia a fair bit, from the southern tip in Johore and as far up as the island of Penang over the last few years. Just went to Cameron Highlands and Kuala Lumpur at the end of last year.
If you need tips about this end of the world, drop me a line!

I travelled China for 5 months so if any of you have any questions about China travel, ask me Since coming back from the trip, I came to the conclusion that I absolutely love the place and decided to go back to study!! I'm going to Beijing this September so hopefully I'll be able to travel some other places that I didn't visit last time. It's amasing how a simple trip can be a turning point of your life innit!?

hey kids

i'm sarah, a photographer/designer originating from the land of the long white cloud (nz) but currently residing in the sunny seaside resort town of brighton, in the uk.

i've been mooching around the world for nearly a year, taking in the sights & sounds of sydney, la, san diego, tijuana, san francisco, seattle, vancouver, chicago, washington dc, new york city, london, helsinki, rovaniemi, brussels, luxembourg city, luzerne, vevey, paris, oxford, frodesley, church stretton, garthmyl, barcelona, redhill, dieppe, and of course, brighton in between!

the next adventure takes me back up to garthmyl in wales, where i get to have easter sunday lunch in a private castle! vague plans are afoot for summering in spain, all dependent on cashflow & partners in crime, but looking likelier as time goes on.

peter & sam, may i congratulate you on a beautiful site, so user-friendly & clean & nice (i'm a web designer by trade, so i know what i'm babbling about!). and hooray for travel photos is all i have to say about that.

happy travels kiddies!

Hi! I'm Jill, from New York City. I live in the heart of Manhattan, and well
if anyone has any NY questions, I'd be happy to help!

In 2 weeks I will be going to Las Vegas. My Dad lives there and I have
been there a few times. I am trying to think of a good day trip or a 2-day
trip that he and I could go on. We have been to Hoover Dam. He doesn't
want to go to L.A. It has to be within 4 hours drive. Any
ideas??I've been thinking about one of the ghost towns, but
honestly I don't know what we could do.

Also, does anyone know anyone who lives in Las Vegas and would like to
hang out and go dancing/drinking?

Ok, this thread has pretty much become redundant now that we have a specific forum for introductions. If you would like to introduce yourself, please start a new thread!

I tried thrice to post in the Introductions Forum, but it came out with loads of errors, and I wasn't even using any of the "forbidden alphanumeric figures" :)

WOW! I must say, this is one of the few travel forums I've chanced upon the web that seemed to say "Welcome", and "Here's your coffee, and let's chat" comfort zone that makes you want to be part of an ever growing community. Yes, I was doing a research on new sites to create when I chanced upon yours and I must say its awesome - I could say WOW again, but that would be pretty redundant.

I'm AainaalyaA, but do call me AA for short since it would be less troublesome for you to remember the aces therein the name. I've lived for more than 6 months in Paris, and hence would offer assistance to any who may like to know of where to go/stay out of the so to speak, tourist belt (s). The same applies to Malaysia since I'm currently living here.

I speak fluent French, English (mother tongue) and Malay, and have a penchant for B+W Photography, Oil on Canvas, and Travelling (of course). I will be leaving for Europe sometime next month or thereabouts, and most probably be in Turkey for a while.

If any of you'd like info, howtos, and tips on travelling to France, Malaysia, Jerusalem, webmeistering or whatsoever, hesitate not to drop or plonk whatever following this thread.

Lord Speed,

Hey AA,

Welcome aboard! Great to hear that you like the site :) It is a pretty major hobby at the moment of Pete and myself and heaps of fun. I would be interested in hearing what kind of errors you encountered in the Intro forum.... we recently switched hosts and server version and that has catered for some small glitches here and there. Nothing unsolvable I hope

If you have any good b/w pics we would be happy to post them here. The photography area keeps on growing and contains some really nice pics, amateur, semi professional and even professional.

The point you raised on forums not being very inviting is actually an interesting one. A lot of people don't seem to be confident posting in forums, usually because they are intimidated in some way (at least that is my theory, based mostly on my own timidness in certain forums). But I hope we can keep the barrier as low as possible for people to post. After all, most people have at least some travelling experience, whether in their own country or overseas. And everyone has something to offer other travellers based on either the countries they live in or have travelled to. It is the sharing part that is so great......

Happy Travels all!
