Last day I bought a dvd called long way round. Its about these two guys going around europe to usa on motorbikes.
Im a big fan of motorbikes but thats a different story. The thing is I love to travel. Anything will do. Walk, bus, train, ferry, airplane. I love it plus watching new places. Currently i like to go to India and then Australia. Not on a motorbike but just for fun.
Ive been to Hajj to saudi and i would have to say that that was the finest piece of travelling and adventure i had. So difficult too. Ive been to dubai too but had a bad experience

oh forgot i made this thread. in dubai i had a 22 hour stay to catch the next flight so i had to spend the day outside the airport but as they were checking my passport i dont know what monster they saw but they kept me in the immigration office for 8 hours. there was a guy beside me who said he is onthe black list thats why he is here. im like thinking what the hell im into? lol but i got the passport then i couldnt find a hotel. this indian taxi driver checked five hotels before dropping me into sixth hotel which had one room available 4 in the morning. i slept and the guy woke me at 11 and said get out its check in. i had no idea what check in meant as i didnt had any experience with the hotels. so i got out the hotel and this hot air hit my body which was killing me. more stupid i was wearing a thick nike jumped on with the hood (how stupid of me) and i was thinking scotland.

this part was the nastiest part of dubai. i did not know where to go so i prayed zuhr in the mosque and took off my shoes and bought them in. the man said put your shoes outside just like everyone else. (everyone else had shoes at the front outside just like that) i told him somebody would steal them (they were 60 pound burberry shoes lol) so i had a good argue with him. then after asar i couldnt find my passport and went back to the hotel. the guy handed me the passport giving me that your-stupid look. i was all red lol. finally i got my plane after isha lol such bad experience

A word of advice - stay away from Hyderabad. You'll have an even more miserable experience, trust me. I've lived here for a majority of my life. >_>

If you're going to come over to India, go the the hill stations, especially the ones in the Himalayas. Most beautiful places ever!! I've never been to Kashmir, but go there if you can, when it's peaceful. :)

And of course, don't forget the Taj Mahal. Worth visiting that ****ty city Agra for. Totally.

Well the first thing i wanna see in india is the big red masjid of delhi. Is delhi bigger than mumbai? And dont worry about Hyderabad. Ive lived in similar places like those. The main problem would be the lang. I think most of india speaks hindi which i know

I personally can't stay at one place for too long, i wonder if there is a phobia for that.

I love to travel, i have being to Islamabad and Karachi in Pakistan and then the States. But I won't mind packing my bags and going to every Rain forest that exists on earth. Yes, it is a human-Free Zone for the most part. ;D

I love rain forests. :-[

I traveled on a bus, train, plane, and boat.......and the best one of all rickshaw, but at the end it didn't feel like traveling.

I like quiet places away from the traffic, away from the pollution, away from the people, away from the material world to the Natural world, where i can actually hear the birds singing in the morning and see the bright stars at night.

Rain forests look so green and fresh.

I've seen that doc, Long Way Round, I loved it! Every episode I watched made me want to hop on a motorbike and tour the world, lol. Watching it also added a bunch of places on my "to visit" list.. like tibet, for example. Ahhh, I love travel.
