Most Memorable Travel Experience
•Asia (July 2009) Getting delayed at the Jakarta airport!
•Scouring the coast of Portugal (August 1996) while sampling the many varieties of Portuguese wine, though 'sampling' may be understating it.
•Standing in the midst of a family of Silver Back Gorillas in the volcano mountains of Rwanda/Congo.
•Exploring the Masai Mara/Serengeti in Kenya and Tanzania.
•My first and second TravBuddy meetups in Vegas. First impressions last forever and I'll remember these for at least that long.
•NYC Meetup (April 2008)
•My UNICEF summers in Africa!
•Antwerp Belgium Meetup (May 2008) Simply a magnificent experience! Meeting so many new friends from Europe was as good as it gets.
•KC Missouri Meetup (June 2008) Okay, I didn't have to travel far for this one, but it WAS memorable. It was also my first time co-hosting a meetup, along with travelman727.
•Falling in love with the spectacular beaches in Mozambique!
•Prague Czech Republic (January 2009)
•Mt. Kilimanjaro (August 2008) Aside from a few headaches, this was the "peak" of my travel experiences.
•Road trip through 5 European countries and the Amsterdam NYE Mega Meet-up (December 2008) I can't do it justice with words!
•Visiting my home away from home in Taipei Taiwan with Brett (metsbwd) and Erin (poohstanggt). Three times, thus far.
•Bali Indonesia (October 2009) The BEST time of my life, thanks to my Princess Asri!!!
•Relief effort in Haiti (January 2010) after the earthquake, but certainly not a pleasant memory.
•Lombok Indonesia (October 2010) Our honeymoon in paradise.
•Riding the Greyhound bus from Missouri to Los Angeles (2011). It could also be considered the most forgettable!
Just planning my next big travel adventure...seems I am always preoccupied with doing that. It's as fundamental as taking my next breath.
