As it is my birthday today and for a change I'm not overseas (like I was in the last 3 yrs)I was wondering what your best birthday was (especially when you were travelling).

Was it maybe being somewhere, where you always wanted to go, seeing a place, you've always dreamed of, or just a really nice present/surprise from someone?

I really enjoyed my day 2day, for several reasons.

1. it was nice to spend my birthday with the family again, which I couldn't do the last few yrs

2. I got the best present (something I really wanted) which was a birthday cake baked by my husband, without Mum helping (every guy who has never baked anything before might have a slight idea what that means)

3. I went for a really good run with my honey, blue sky, warm temperatures (it is supposed to b winter though) and I felt so good (which I don't take forgranted, as I've just oversome chr.bronchitis)

I guess reasons for the best birthday ever will b pretty personal/different, depending on who we are and what's imoprtant to us.

Lookin forward to hearing ur stories!

I haven't been travelling during my birthday, mainly because my parents have their birthdays in the same week and I feel a little bit bad when I am not there.
My worst will be next month when I will become 30 years old..or young? ;)

My best birthday would definately have to be my last birthday. I finally turned 21, so I can drink legally now!! I also went skydiving for the first time with a good friend of mine. It was amazing...Rode my streetbike to the dropzone, on a beautiful day I might add. Then I went skydiving, which is indescribable because words do it no justice, and then hit up the bars later that night. What a great day!

Happy Birthday, Kathi!

My best birthday was my 30th, just a couple of weeks ago. I was surrounded by friends, felt great, and went out salsa dancing in a hot red dress, followed by a late night meal at a favorite pancake house. It was so much fun!

More than anything, it was a great time with my friends, and the fact that we all had fun together doing something we'd never tried before. :D

Happy Birthday, Kathi! Hope you had a wonderful, wonderful day.

I'd have to say my most memorable birthday was last year - the lucky 33 (or l'age du Christ, as they say here). I spent most of the day travelling with a friend from Rome to Venice, then had a late, late supper along the Grand Canal. It was beautiful!

Happy day after birthday, Kathrin!

I was thinking about my best birthday ever, but can't seem to remember what I did in any of my 29 birthdays so far. My family always call and wish me first thing in the morning and then my friends call or visit but nothing specific stands out in my mind, not even the gifts.

ok, I've got another one:

4. we went out last night with a few people (friends) we thought we'd have fun with...

it was an awesome night and turned out really, really great! For the first time I feel like I've reconnected to people in my homecountry...

moreover I got lots of phonecalls, which made me feel very special and people I never hear from, at least rang yesterday!
