You Want to Know a basic secret to a happy Travels? It's easy really! Just learn to pronounce the four or five most basic words of the country you are going to visit..I think they are really helpful in most situations: The words i'm talking about are: HELLO, Hi, OK, PLEASE, THANK YOU, & GOODBYE.
And if you can learn a few basic numbers and phrases, all well and good, but these are the main ones which will be rewarded with a smile most of the time. Try to bare in mind, that most times, people are not laughing at you because you talk funny, they are apprciative of you making the effort.
Hello & Welcome to my homepage.
First and foremost, let me just say a big thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read this.
Time to start talking about Travel, the main reason for this site.
My Name is Vince, I'm forty something, I'm married and have two grown sons.
It is only in the Last few years as my sons have grown up and so become less dependant on me (They still drive Mum to Despair!) that I have really started to travel.
My first Major jaunt on my own, so to speak, was when I went to China. This, to me, was facinating and gave me the urge to travel even more. I have since returned to China a further two times, and also have been backpacking around India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Costa Rica, Mexico, USA, Egypt, Morocco, Europe and so on.
After a couple of trips I found that although I was having a great time, it was hard to explain all my adventures when I got home. With this in mind I took a course in Photography in order to be able to capture some images from my trips. I really like to take people pictures mostly, but still have some good images of the sights from around the World.
I also vowed to record in writing my adventures and mishaps in the form of a travelogue/journal each time I travelled, in the hope that these notes would serve to remind me exactly what I had seen, and what i'd done as I went along from one place to another.
