Most Memorable Travel Experience
1. Hiking and visiting the South Island of New Zealand
The scenery was absolutely beautiful and unlike anything I have seen before. Highly recommended!

2. Another great trip was Venice, Italy. Entering the city by water taxi is an experience I will never forget. Absolutely beautiful.

3. Taking a boat trip up the Bosphorus in Istanbul to the Black Sea was an incredible journey. The palaces, buildings and city walls were spectacular.

4. Walking through Gamla Stan in Stockholm in November at night with lanterns lit and candles in the shop windows. The shadows from the candles generate a unique warmth.

Truthfully, though, anytime I travel somewhere new it's a great experience.

I'm glad to have found a site where everyone likes to travel as much as I do.

I love the following quote:

"The world is a book and he who stays at home reads only one page."

Hello Donna!
How are you! I just got back on Travel Buddy and realise you were in Morocco alone..? Wow! I was in Marrakesh, Fez, Chefchaouen and Tangier..loved them all except Fez - to say it was dissapointing would be an understatement!!
