Travel - I Hate It
 
# 31 : Thursday 4-3-2010 @ 13:44
 
 
I really dont enjoy travelling. I've got friends in Budapest and they always want me to go over. I just dont enjoy it. You're expected to do stuff all the time and be in great form and sometimes I'm just not in the right form for travelling.

I wont be going anywhere in 2010. Apart from Limerick.

I'm the polar opposite to this. I love it.

I love travelling, even if it's getting the first bus leaving the station (Though that time I ended up in Athlone was scary). I love the new experiences and to learn. I can pretty much talk to anyone so quickly settle into an area.

(on a side note, I lived in Amsterdam for a few months and hope the entire place sinks)

I love travelling... though it depends on who im travelling with. I didnt get on an aeroplane until my early 20's, and ever since ive just been a fiend for it. I love airports, even when im complaining about them.

I suppose the reason most people love to travel is just the opportunity to look at different surroundings for a week or two but its more than that for me

a lady boy runs the reception, room service just rocks up unexpected (chilli prawns for breakfast after a night on whiskey going dancing with the ladyboy comes with benefits, she loves me !)
but it's great the family who own the place really try and show us a good time

Wow! That sounds like so much fun. Sounds like my kind of hotel.

I agree with CB, Wheelie and Elat about travelling. The ability to travel for pleasure is a privilege and an education, thought I appreciate that not everyone enjoys the journey. But anyone who thinks they already 'know' the world and its infinite cultures and experiences is isolated, insular and ignorant.

Raspberry, You could always do a norwegian fjord cruise which goes from bergen all the way up to alta. It's about a quarter of the price. do it in september or october and you'll get the glaciers and icebergs and all the wonderful norwegian towns and cities.myself and some friends have a day trip around oslofjord booked in may which should be somewhat fun and boring after an hour or so.

That does sound fantastic indeed, just prefer a trip like that to some sun and sangria type of holiday. Hmm, must investigate

Here is a trip from hell for a disabled Army Veteran, where airline employees kicked his service dog not once but twice, and asked him if he was retarded.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/22/jim-stanek-united-airlin etc ...
Jim Stanek, a disabled veteran and Paws and Stripes cofounder, claims United Airlines staff physically abused his service dog, Sarge, and verbally abused him during an unexpected three-day layover at Dulles International Airport outside of Washington, D.C.

In a video posted to YouTube detailing the abuses, Stanek says the "nightmare" began on July 15, while he was at the ticket desk.

"Some United Airlines employees were moving by and one of them was startled, turned, and kicked my service dog," Stanek says in the video. "Didn't kick her hard, but ... they kicked her."

Stanek continues, saying he chalked it up to an accident and let it go -- even when it happened a second time by a different United staffer.

The Daily Mail reports Stanek has post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well as traumatic brain injury (TBI) following three tours in Iraq, which makes standing in loud crowds and reading difficult. In the video, Stanek states the most traumatic part of the ordeal occurred when, while trying to get a hotel voucher after his flight was canceled for a second day in a row, the man at the ticket counter asked if he was "retarded" -- referring to his inability to stand in the line with everyone else, and read the paperwork.

"I completely lost all composure at that point," he said in the video. "I started yelling, I used four letter words ... and I've worked very hard not to be like that."

According to the blog Reduced Mobility Right, the U.S. Department of Transportation has opened an investigation into the incident, with the cooperation of the airline.

"We are reaching out to the customer directly to discuss the events that he described," a spokesperson for United told Reduced Mobility Rights on July 21.

People want to see the world. I don’t see anything wrong with that.

I’ve done my fair share of travelling. Spent a year in Australia when I was 23. Visited a lot of countries since. Did a lot of city breaks too over the past few years too. I actually prefer going on mini trips now as opposed to longer treks abroad.
