Most Memorable Travel Experience
MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES: Walking on Ice(Glacier Hiking) in Iceland after going to an underground hot spa with different scented steam rooms including mint leaves and cinnamon, Hiking Mt. Rainier in Washington, Hiking and doing a one week campout at Arizona's Black River while having to catch and prepare my own fish for dinner, Flying to New Orleans for Halloween, Walking to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Exploring the Gold Coast in Downtown Chicago's Nightlife District, a New York City Helicopter tour of the city, Walking through the Roman Baths, Taking a cab across the Albanian border with my friend Paul and having the Albanian border patrol almost stealing my "Perfect Push-ups" until they realized it was a workout device when I mimicked doing a push-up LOL, eating in Sarajevo during a busy time of the day, walking through the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia being surrounded by massive castle like structures, eating on the water in Dubrovnik, working out with locals in Montenegro, attempting to ski in Montenegro, getting a massage in Hungary and then hitting the hot spa's afterwards which was awesome, conversating with a native Mostar girl after crossing the border into Bosnia while standing on the famous Bridge of Mostar, traveling by bus/cab through the Balkan Empire of Eastern Europe, exploring Waikiki Beach and the surrounding areas in Hawaii, staying in Del Mar on the coast with family. Flying to Cancun, Mexico spur of the moment one morning with friends and then the same day in the evening going to a massive club immersed in between thousands of locals dancing the night away. Exploring Puerto Penasco, Mexico with a group during the spring break period in March. Going to England for 72 hours and seeing Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, Wantage, and a few other cities. Flying into Frankfurt, Germany on Singapore Airlines and receiving socks and a toothbrush before the flight started. Now that's class! Touching the Arctic Circle in Finland. Cruising to Gotland!
I'm into basketball, boxing, American History, Harley Davidson trucks and motorcycles, Boeing 737-700's and 737-800's, making special connections with those I network with, work with and those I meet while traveling or in everyday life. Hanging with family and friends and having a great time during all of my memorable travel experiences.

Joe - will be there from November 24 to 26. Likely will go to Tucson whole day of Saturday but by nighttime I will be free for the meetup. Will be staying in downtown, so I think we can definitely set a TravBuddy meetup in the evening onwards, and hopefully get at least 3-5 folks to show up. Will message you my mobile number here and WhatsApp.

Hi Joe, will you be in Phoenix during Thanksgiving? I'm passing by the area and thinking of organizing a TravBuddy meetup.
