Talk about it. Where are you planning to go next?
If things work out well, I'm hoping for Iceland in October.
I was just listening to Anthony Bourdain talk about Hákarl on a radio show. Hákarl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sounds awful but it sounds like one of those "when in Rome" situations.
It does sound awful. "Ammonia rich smell, fishy taste" is an instant no-go for me. I've eaten some weird stuff while abroad, but I can't do ammonia.
I'd probably pass on it, too. I like to think I'm that adventurous, but that's a really tall order. They were saying how the odor would linger for days.
What are some of y'all's favorite destinations?
I'm going to visit Los Angeles this summer, may be going to Cabo in August too (not likely). Wanting to save up for something more adventurous after that.
Well, for the honeymoon, I wanted to visit a bunch of Marxist related sites in England, Germany, Budapest, etc. But, my partner doesn't want to do that, so we are negotiating right now.
I've eaten Harkal! It's pretty bad, tastes like acidic piss. Probably the worst thing I've eaten.
I'm off to Amsterdam on Tuesday. Going to Nepal in October, and will probably go somewhere in the Summer - no concrete plans for that though.
I'm going to Disney World in a couple weeks. I need to get back to Thailand though. Or Vietnam.
I'll be in Miami for five days next month, can't wait. Going with two of my best friends to stay with our other good friend who lives down there. It's a repeat of a trip they surprised me with last year for my "bro-by shower" (a baby shower, but for bros. basically a bachelor party because I had a baby before getting married because I am a sinner). Anyway, it was a blast last year so I'm really excited to spend time with them all again, I hope we make it an annual tradition.
Budapest is awesome, if you ever get the chance to go there, @Dominick
Going to Portland in May, super excited - been wanting to visit for years.
It's so much fun, I wish I could live there.
I'm afraid im going to go there and not want to leave...
Where in LA are you going to be?
I have no clue yet, still trying to get it all planned. There are people I know in all different areas so I have no idea where would be most convenient or where I'd spend most my time haha
I can totally afford to go to Mexico City for a few days right now. I don't know why that's where I want to go. Probably because it's inexpensive, full of culture, and Mexico is AZ's close neighbor. My family would be deathly afraid for my safety, though. I don't know how I can convince them it's nowhere near as bad as they think it is. It seems intimidating because I've never left the country but I think it would be a great experience.
Going somewhere in the US sounds boring compared to Mexico City. Something domestic might have to do, though, if something comes together at all.
You have to have a valid passport for 6 months before you can enter Mexico, so I guess that's the end of that. For now.
I wanna go back to Germany, specifically Berlin in the fall. Not sure how that'll work out considering I'm moving to the city in a couple months. Also wanna head over to Dublin. For now, I have a couple shows planned in Toronto, that's always fun.
I am dying to do a "Stephen Fry In America" style road trip where it's just me, a companion and visiting every state by driving. Would be the dream to dedicate time to that.
Driving is my favorite way to get around. Like you said, though, it takes a lot of time.
If anyone has the funds and time, I would absolutely recommend traveling to Yangon and Bagan in Myanmar. Bagan is absolutely the most beautiful place where you can see over 2000 Buddhist monuments and temples within a 40km radius. Being relatively untouched by tourism, the people there are very friendly towards outsiders. Also, they love Obama.
The Myanmar episode of Parts Unknown was really good. I think. I might be getting it mixed up with another city.
Should go all out and also find a way to drive to Hawaii
