We arranged to meet before she left US.

We met in Kuwait, had a friendly day together, and then enjoyed snack dinner. Leda is a kind, warm and lovely Lady.

I and my best friend Vatch invited her for Kuwaiti dinner, and we really had good time, as she shared her traveling experience around the world.

She's a wonderful person to meet :)

How did you meet in real life?

First, at the Huge TB Meetup in Bangkok. Then, we became almost like a little 'family' of TB's in London. In August2014, he invited me to Dublin.

Why are you vouching for them?

(I said we 'traveled together' since we did in a way- I was 4 days couchsurfing)

Francis is one of a kind! I knew he was from the very beginning when we met at the Bangkok meetup. Then, at the London Meetup, he and 5 others were like brothers and sisters) He's the kind of person that is very patient, positive, and willing to help you and also listen.

In Aug2014, he TOLD me I had to come to his home, Dublin. Why I had left it for country # 120, no idea! Francis was kind to take me and another friend along the seashore, showed us things most tourists don't get to see, and guided me with ways to see bits and pieces of Dublin on my own.

Thank you, Francis, for being yourself! Your easy-going attitude and wise advise combined to make Dublin, my 'home away from home'.

While I was travelling in Kuwait.

Why are you vouching for them?

It is my pleasure to vouch for Omar. He is a friendly, polite, and interesting person to get to know. He got in touch with me few days before I left USA and we exchange many messages. I felt comfortable with him from the beginning. He sure made my trip much more enjoyable in Kuwait.

As soon as I arrived I gave him a call and he pick me up in the evening for sight seen, during that time we also stop for a snack at the mall and it was just great time.

He asked me in advance to bring his best friend along, and we all share a Kuwait dinner on my last night. It was a perfect night.

I hope to keep in touch with him and also I hope to see him again someday in USA or in Brazil, where I vacationing every Brazilian Summer.

I was looking forward to meeting with her, as I had gotten used to chatting with her on here and then we be friends on Facebook.

I contacted katyx on Travbuddy, as we both were travelling to Varanasi. We exchanged phone numbers and eventually planned to meet at Sarnath on a hot Friday morning. We shared a pleasant time together walking along the ghats beside the river Ganges. We saw buffaloes bathing in the river (which amused her more than me) and burning bodies (cremations) and finally ended the day by watching the Ganga Aarti at the Dashashwamedh Ghat.

Why are you vouching for them?

Katyx is an wonderful companion to travel with. She has an ever smiling face and a friendly personality.
