Travel Plans
Bled, Slovenia
dream destination
Been persuaded by tj1777's review :)
Countries I've Traveled To
Languages Spoken
French enough to get by on holiday without guide book. Russian at very basic tourist needs level. And more flippantly..Myers Briggs
Interests
Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
Can't do just one.. locked down in Mysore for 3 days during civil unrest (extremely memorable!) Being 'blessed' by a temple elephant. Watching Giselle in the royal box at the Marinsky Theatre in St Petersburg. 'Big Mac and fries' with Lenin in Yalta. being given mud spa treatment at an old-fashioned sanitorium by an ex-soviet female shot-putter (again extremely memorable!)
Profile
I'm practical with a good sense of humour.. essential for an independant traveller! And flexible when things don't go according to plan (again essential!)

Can't decide if I travel to take photos, or take photos to travel.. both so inter-twined for me.

I hope you are enjoying Romnia. And then off to Bled? Two very interesting destinations, which I have already visited.
