Most Memorable Travel Experience
Not quite sure since all places are special in its own way, but its easy to remember to things like being robbed (Manila,Budapest,Oslo,Santos,Grand Canaria) or extreme hospitality (Czech republic , Canary Islands and Philippines)

Its also easy to remember the wildest parties (Austria , Brazil and Czech republic) or places where nobody understands you and you have to make wide use of the sign language(China and France)

Its all about the people you meet on your journey!
Profile
26 Year old travel-o-maniac.. Current Occupation: Deck Officer in the Merchant navy engaged in International trade

This gives me a rewarding job transporting me around the world , and not least 182 vacationdays a year. This enables me to travel quite extensively which is my favorite feature about this job.

Im like a wanderer , a rolling stone with very few roots which ties me to a specific place in the world. I would not be surprised if i decide to settle down in another country than my birthplace , probably on a tropical islands.

I love the concept of travbuddy or Couchsurfing. Its a great way to make friends all over the world and even get local guidance all over the world.

I believe that all people is equal , skin colour , any personal defects , and races are equal. People are responsible for their own actions, and i despise people hiding behind their religion when they have committed a crime against humanity.
