Traveling
« on: June 22, 2012, 08:57:26 AM »
So who here likes to visit other states/countries/places/etc?
Where have y'all been?
What's the longest you've been away from your home area place city state thing?
Is money a big factor for you and travelling, or do you YOLO it?




As for myself, I love to travel. There is a matter of money, though. We're quite poor as it is and my parents solemn pay hundreds to simply have fun. Solemn meaning never.

I've been to Vietnam, though. That's the only out-of-country place I've been, and only because we were visiting family. I've never been there before I was 5. I haven't been there for years, but we stayed for about a month each time we visited.

I have also been to Las Vegas. Now, my family only goes of our extended family pools in money(unfairly. Richest families pay more). The only paying my parents do is at the casino... ._. And gas for the car, granted we take it. Anywho, thing is we don't pay that much to drive to Vegas.

I go see what I want to then move on. I mostly visit war sites, I've travelled the entire length of the western front visiting every museum etc. Switzerland is just a shortcut to Italy, Spain I've only been for holidays, Poland I went to see Auschwitz. etc etc. Next month I'm off to Germany to see Dachau concentration camp, then Austria to see Hitlers birthplace, then I'm going to Czech republic to see the jew ghetto at Terezin and then im going to Prague to see where Heydrich was assassinated. September I'm going to Spain again for a holiday. Before that though I might pop to France/Belgium/Germany or Italy to see some customers, if I can be bothered.

I'm here just thinking about how much that would have helped me this year in History class.
Although I wouldn't go as uh.. in-depth as you would, I'd really love to visit some of those places someday to visit museums and stuff c:

Auschwitz is the stand out place to visit if you have an interest in those kind of things, I'll post some pics if you want.

The entrance to the main camp


The execution wall


The entrance to the death camp


The field where they burned the corpses


Where they hanged prisoners


The hut where they were seperated for death or work


Where the prisoners slept


The entrance into the now ruined gas chambers


The toilets

It's scary enough in the daytime. I got there at 7am the first time I visited and I was the only person walking around the death camp(its huge btw). The atmosphere is pretty damn creepy.

Here's me at a few more places.
The reichstag, Berlin


Brandenberg gate, berlin


The Berlin wall. Just behind the wall here is the old Gestapo headquarters where they tortured people.


Checkpoint Charlie


Rotterdam getting my coffee intake and dying of hangover


The Fuhrerbunker, the scene of Hitlers death.


Omaha beach


Pegasus bridge, the site of the first building(Cafe Gondree) to be liberated on D Day


A huge crater left by a WW1 underground mine in France.


Remains of trenches from WW1


The beaches at Dunkirk


Pattons grave in Luxembourg


Can you guess where I am here?

The graffiti'd berlin wall! O:
Have all the prettier pieces been moved away? :C
The trenches look pretty, it's hard to believe people got killed on them.
And in the last one.. Are you in... ATLANTA?!
