Getting to Know Each Other --- May 2015


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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.
