Thanks to all who have gone before (Talespinner and TGP as well as those who have provided them questions).  I stepped up to continue the questions.  As I have been doing a lot of traveling lately, the first few will be travel related.

 

Question for May 9th : What is your favorite foreign country that you have visited?  (if you have not visited a foreign country, don't worry, tomorrows question is for you)

Ireland.  Hands down.  Spent my honeymoon there.  Can't wait for a chance to go back.

 

Of course, that's also pretty easy, because it's the only foreign country I have ever been to other than Canada, and I was only in Canada for an afternoon, twice.

Austria, I think. Spectacular scenery, really nice people, and great skiing.

USA.

 

( I'm from the Netherlands).

 

I've visited quite a few countries, but I loved this.

I went to Arizona a few times.

 

It helps that I love the desert, reptiles, westerns and steaks I guess.

Probably Austria had a very good time there.

It might be worth mentioning that I've never been to anything as large as a country that I didn't like. There's always interesting stuff to see and people to talk to.

I've only been to 2: KANADAW, and Italy. Italy was the most fun per dollar per day, though I love visiting Canada. I go there about once a year. I have the best conversations with Canadian Customs. We often cut through Ontario on our way home from family reunions in Michigan.

 

Reason for visit: Just passing through

Duration of stay: Dinner

Canadian Customs Officer:  So where are you headed?

 

Runt with Glasses:  St. Johns (Newfoundland).

 

Canadian Customs Officer: WHY????

 

Runt with Glasses:  Because it is almost, but not quite, completely unlike Baghdad.

 

Canadian Customs Officer:  Understood.

I enjoy living here in Arizona. Feel free to drop me a PM if you, or anyone else, visit again.

It's a toss-up between Beijing, China and Florence, Italy. China was a culture-shock-- beautiful, mysterious, and the Great Wall is much steeper than I thought! Florence for the amazing food, fashion, and the fact that I was proposed to at the top of San Miniato al Monte. Can't beat that! Plus, the word "Mini" is in it which is probably significant too. I'll have to work that into a pun somehow...

Very kind of you.

 

But I have been there three times work related so government payed for it.

Now I rebased and it is unlikely I get the chance again to go to the USA.

 

Maybe some day when I can afford it. privately.

      The Frequently Ignored "Rules"
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 2AM and 9AM GMT (London time).
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions will take the form of  two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
      1st Question will be posted in a bit (had to wait so it didn't merge posts) ...and this month only... we start on the 3rd.

      October 1st and 2nd's Question:
      Suppose you are in a coffee shop hanging out with middle school version of you (or a clone with the stolen memories of yourself at that time, cast into the future to prevent a paradox).
      If you were talking about who you were going to be as a person when you grew up versus who you are right now, how different is what you both want?
       
       
      Edited for formatting. And the question has been updated. The niceties must be observed.
