Hey man... where you been?

Postby TheCraw » 02 Aug 2013, 05:59

I'm not sure if this has been asked/done before, but in bitching about how miserable California was, and saying Georgia wasn't so bad, I got the itch to post this. (and being an midddle-aged f@rt, I figured I have a shot at being one of the more traveled)

I mean, you should have been in the place for more than 6 hours and spent that time ~in~ the place, not on a ship in it's harbor or an airport/airbase (for all you servicemen & women).

Man... I've been to:
Brooklyn, NY
Manhattan, NY
Pleasantville, NY
Dobbs Ferry, NY
Ossining, NY
Greenwich, CT
Stamford, CT
New Haven, CT
Norwich, CT
Scituate, MA
Chatham, MA
Boston, MA
Stratton Mountain, VT
Lake Fairlee, VT
Thompson, PA
Philadelphia, PA
Akron, OH
Washington, DC
Detroit, MI
Birmingham, MI
Bloomfield Hills, MI
Sterling Heights, MI
Chicago, IL
Sandpoint, ID
Bonners Ferry, ID
The Owyhee desert, OR
Long Beach, CA
San Jose, CA
Running Springs, CA
Charleston, SC
Lake Murray, SC
Beaufort, SC
Savannah, GA
Orlando, FL
Clearwater Beach, FL
Ft, Lauderdale, FL
The Bahamas
St. Maarten
San Juan, PR
Cancún, Mexico
Mexico City, Mexico
Winnipeg, MB, Canada
The Pas, MB, Canada
Cork, Ireland
Paris, France
London, U.K.

And thereabouts...how about you?
Very clever, Mr. Smart...

Not that many places. I've basically gone on a broad sweep of the island I live on from

London
Manchester
Cornwall
Bristol
Cardiff (and southern wales)
Cambridge
Oxford
Liverpool
Yorkshire
Leicester
you get the idea... I have visited other places I can't remember

Slightly more exotic

Southern Scotland (Scotland is a profoundly different place than England and Wales)
Northern Ireland
Dublin
The Battlefield for this battle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Vimy_Ridge (which apparently is Canadian soil so I've sort of been to Canada)
And Paris

Wow, my travel history is remarkably uninteresting.
