Just want to share some memories of TB meet ups, the making of new friends, sharing the pictures and experiences over this new year!
It has been a great year for me as always full of blessings, family unity, good work, travels, meeting awesome people, and having a good time in wonderful places. It was a low year for travel this time, i did get to see new USA cities and places i was never before. i met with lots of great people that made an impact in my life, i remember every each of them, every moment and laugh that we shared.
I met Eric (yekcoh) and Karina (karieve) in Charlotte on June 24, 2008 the times where good, we hang out at Buffalo Wild Wings and then head out to the city, it was so good to meet this two great Travelers, we shared some awesome time, had Inka cola and goof around the city.
On November 01 at New York City i hang out with Ian and Debra, i met Ian (aussieusa82) at Newark Liberty International Airport and head to NYC, had a great time, ride the subway and dinner, see some awesome places on New York and got ready on the weekend for a job interview we were both going to, it was so great to see Ian again and have the time to share some moments with this awesome guy, who happens to be a good traveler.
Also had the pleasure to met Debra (sheba124) at New York City, i met her at times Square on a wonderful day, we met on the streets of busy NYC in the middle of thousands of people and we both recognize ourselves right away, from the first minute it was like if we known each other from years ago, shared lots of laughs, stories and coffee, walked around and spend an awesome time.
November 22, was another awesome day, woke up very early to go to the Charlotte/Douglas International Airport and pick up a very good friend of mine, well actually i met him on TravBuddy months ago and we started chatting and messaging, he had been in Guatemala a year before i got into TB and didnt have the chance to meet with him. what a great surprise when he told me he was coming to Charlotte for a short time and i was finally gonna meet with him, this great person is now one of my best friends and someone i will remember very good its Samer aka Sam (architeqt), we had the opportunity to meet and hang out at the city, i show him around some interesting places, i personally had an awesome time, we clicked from the first time, it was like i knew Sam from years ago, trying to talk as much we can, getting to know each other well, i saw his little sheepy (hehehe) and play with it a bit, its a very lucky sheep travels around the globe with Sam.
December 2008 met with Richard in Charlotte he had just join TravBuddy, saw him a couple times in the city, met around and hang out at his place, he's not very active on here, we are still very good and close friends on Facebook, it was another of my great experiences, had an awesome time with him, we had been chatting for a while to meet, and we finally did at dinner one time out on Brixx Pizza place in uptown Charlotte, so it was so great to meet with him and still have him as a friend.
