"Have Beard, Will Travel" Krakken232's Profile
I'm from Montana, the great frontier, the last best place! I love history, architecture, and natural beauty, and love to travel to new places to see firsthand some of the things I've read about since I was a kid. Sometimes it's tough finding the time to get out of my home territory, because when you live in Montana, there is so much to see, do, and explore right outside your front door.
I lived for about 6 months in the Philippines working with a humanitarian organization. I experienced the wonderful people of this country every day and was constantly amazed by their generosity, friendliness, and general good will. I also consumed by far the strangest foods I've ever had in my life over the course of the short time I was there, including my first (and only) dog.
I took my first (for fun) trip the year I got out of college. After getting sick of all my friends travelling to exciting locations on their parents' dime, I finally scraped enough money together to go see something new on my own. Despite having extremely limited knowledge of Spanish, and never having used public transportation before (we don't have any here!), with the help of the friendly people in the VirtualTourist forums I made an itinerary and got it done! Amazing trip - solo wasn't AS nice as I thought it would be, I definitely would have liked someone to share the whole thing with, and I discovered that around two weeks truly is my burnout time on travelling... But it was definitely a formative experience.
Honeymoon time! Beautiful place, very vibrant and laid back, fun people. Tough to beat the heat unless you are in the ocean 24/7 though...
Finally the dream vacation! My wife and I took a whirlwind tour of this beautiful country and saw most of the major attractions we had looked forward to all our lives. In between the craziness of rushing from place to place we took a break for a few days to explore Tuscany by car, and a few days to rest up in Cinque Terre, both of which were amazing. After a great mix of city and rural experiences, we capped the trip off with a few days in Venice, which I had dreamed of seeing ever since I was a little kid.
