    Anyone travelled outside their native country where they live? How about future travelling hopes?

    I would love to go to Europe and the US and parts of Asia, like Japan, China, Singapore and Hong Kong. I also think missionary work in Africa would be a great experience.

    I also have this fascination about going to Antartica! :biggrin

    Well I live in the U.S. but I have been to Mexico, the Grand Cayman Islands, and Jamaica which were all wonderful experiences! I'd love to go to a foreign country and do missions work like Africa as well, and I've always wanted to go to Ireland, I think I fell in love with it haha

    I live in the US, and I've been to England and Scotland.
    I want to travel around the US more and visit most other parts of the world.

    I've only travelled overseas once... which was in 2007 to go on a cruise around Hawaii, Tahiti & Fiji, then to Sydney.

    I'd like to go to London or Scotland in the future, don't know about any other places that I'd like to go, I guess go back to Fiji since we didn't actually go to the main island.

    Used to live in Brisbane 3 years ago, now I'm in a town about 2 - 3 hours south of Townsville.

    I've always really been overseas travelling since I've been young, 9 times to Brazil, 1 time to Canada, 2 times to Australia where I currently live! ;D Moved down here from The Netherlands last year (: Great country! Brazil is an amazing country, the people are very warm hearted, and the nature is amazing! If you ever get the chance, definitely check it out.

    I actually lived in Italy for a couple of years while my mom was in the navy. I was little at the time, so I don't remember much.
    I've been in a couple other countries, too, around that same time, but just in the airports during connecting flights and stuff.

    Wow Italy seems like a beautiful country! Do you still live there or have you moved?

    We moved back to the US when I was about four. Moved around very little since then.

    I have memories here and there. Like I remember looking out the window during Sunday school or something and seeing a beautiful view of the city. All my other memories just involve things like my mom spraining her ankle, me accidentally knocking her crutches over when she was trying to take a nap, me falling down the stairs twice, and staying at someone's house for a week while my mom had to go on a trip.

    We did see the collisium while there. I don't remember that, but we have pictures.

    I LOVE travelling. Been to many parts of Australia (quite a large area), and also England, France, Italy, Germany and Switzerland. I'm planning a second trip around either Europe or North America within the next 5 years.

    I'm so jealous. I've been around many of the states here, but that's lame.

    Some would say Canada's lame too ;)

    :hysterical

    Seriously, Canada seems a lovely beautiful place, and when I manage to travel to north America, my plan is Canada and the eastern states. Being a history buff (and it's my major) I really want to get to places like Boston, Phillie, NY, DC et al.

    Been to Canada once in 2006, I loved it! The atmosphere around Christmas is really good as well if you got some friends/family living there to celebrate it with. Even if you wouldn't, it's just a great, beautiful country you should definitely check out.
