    Where's the coolest place you visited, and why?
    share a pic or 2 if you care too.
     
  2. - Inside the 'Walt Disney apartment' that Walt used back in the "days" when Disneyland was being built, and during it's formative years. The apartment which is very small, sits atop the Disneyland fire station on Main Street where you first enter the park. Walt and Lillian Disney decorated it all in 19th century furniture, drapes, rugs, brass objects.. etc.

    Grape farms and towns carved into 100+ ft. high cliffs on the eastern Mediterranean coast. amazing.


    Italy, in general, is the coolest place I have ever visited.

    canada. Well, Vancouver Island, actually. Awsome place. Everyone was so dang friendly up there!

    that and I saw some hippie commune with a thatched-roof building with grass growing out of it. There were goats grazing on the roof. AWSOME!!!
     
  6. Considering I havent really been anywhere else, Id have to say Jamaica.
     
  7. dude. BC is full of hippy towns.

    the east coast is even friendlier. :D Newfoundland especially.

    Great people, beautiful beach! Helps if you speak the language. I don't speak Spanish and it was a big mistake. It would have been a LOT more enjoyable if I had been better able to communicate with the locals. Very friendly! Coconuts on the beach for breakfast! Mescal on the beach in the evening (really compliments a sunset)! Everyone claps as the sun sets over the Pacific to say thank you for another beautiful day!

    Fortunately there are a couple of gringo bar owners in case of emergency. But looking back I think I was arrogant to be a guest in their beautiful country and didn't even bother to take the time to learn their language! Americans = dios mio, carumba y ay-yi-yi!

    Now don't tell anyone else about this

  13. COOMBS!!!

    i love coombs, its such a great little town.

    the most amazing city i have ever visited would probably be Havana. the architecture was so beautiful, and looking right seeing the fast hustle-and-bustle of the marketplace and looking left and seeing an outdoor restaraunt where most of the people there hadnt moved for hours. the history was amazing aswell.

    When I was younger, my Mom always told me "Don't go through that door. No Matter what!"
    But, one day I was sitting there, and the temptation just was over-whelming!
    So I stood up, walked over and pushed open the door.
    What did I see? WONDERFUL thing!
    The Sun!
    Clouds!
    and even Flowers

    come to newfoundland canada, you'll walk down the street and people you dont't know will stop and talk to you. Its great here lol.

    apperently were known for being very friendly, when 911 happened (which was very tragic i might add) there were planes that had to land at st. john's airport and people from st. john's went to the airport to get people and bring them back to their homes so they could sleep in a bed rather then in an airport chair and of course get some good ole newfie grub lol.

  19. I love the Florida Keys. I've been to many places but I just feel best when I'm there. I could easily spend all my time in a fast flats boat with a full cooler and a few fishing poles. :cool:
