я...в 24 года

passport

Ah...youth! My original passport, which I received shortly before my first overseas journey. I decided to go to one of the farthest places possible on my inaugural international trip - all the way to Australia! Over 24 hours on a plane, and the loss of a complete day in the process due to the time change. My companion was a very hot colleague at the airlines, and we became lovers on this trip. Then it became a nightmare when we ceased relations! Have you ever dated a co-worker or boss? Not really a smart idea, but sometimes we can't control passion. :)

I haven't changed much since this picture. Now I'm 41, a little bit fatter, but the same hairstyle. :) Tomorrow, we return to travel stories! I'll publish my final post and photos from Israel. What's the first country you visited, or dream to visit? I dream about Iceland, Norway and the frozen continent of Antarctica!

Pleasant evening to all!

You were so pretty and young, looked as 15 years old ))). About dating coworker. I remember I had once, but we were so secretive, all other believed we are the worst enemies, we were arguing all the time ))). But it wasn't really love, so breaking up wasn't difficult.
I dream to visit at least 150 countries, but the most desirable are Oceania, Caribbean, where the sea/ocean is warm and people are nice and happy

Thanks! I have good family genes. :) Plus, I rarely drink alcohol and have never smoked. These things age people quickly.

My first country outside USSR was Bulgaria in 1988... And now I dream about Norway and, perhaps, Mexico - about other choice I don't have final decision yet. But as usual everything can change in the very last moment and having planned trip to one country, you can find yourself somewhere else:)))
And passion isn't controllable... It's a storm... or it's not a passion...

Passion was a real problem for me in youth...it led to several relationships with the wrong type of men. In my older years, it's definitely easier to control. I've now been celibate for a few years. This is a very, very challenging existence, and the topic is probably worthy of a separate post. :)) I also dream of Norway! Especially after my trip to Alaska. I envision the landscapes are very similar.

It's my spy designation, of course! :) The State Dept. has now removed the red star, to avoid suspicion. :)

My first country was Seychelles (in my 9 yo :) ).
It was 1980, the year of the Olympics in Moscow, and my grandfather was the first Soviet ambassador there.

It is a really good place, "Garden of Eden", officially :)
Hope to return there one day.

Now I visit foreign countries occasionally, for work or for some special purposes like qigong practice.

There are many interesting places but not enough time and/or money :)

9 years old! It's very early in life - awesome! I didn't start until my 20's. Was it easier for you to travel abroad during the Cold War because of your family's diplomatic status? This video is amazing! It's my dream to see a polar bear in the Arctic, and I believe penguins are the cutest animals on the planet. :))

I want to take the train from St. Petersburg to Finland on my next trip to Russia! I think Finnish women are beautiful. They look so pure and innocent. Like sweet snow angels. :)

the first and yet the only one country we've been to is Egypt. i'd love to go there once again to take a Nile cruise. but the biggest dream place is GB.

Did your kids like traveling to another country? GB is definitely worth a visit, and you can practice your English there. :)

Norway is worth visiting. A very beautiful country. I have been there several times and plan to go there again to visit those parts of the country, which I haven't reached before. I'm thinking of the US and Canada but I feel these two countries will show up in my list much later.

Norway is also very expensive! This is the main obstacle in traveling there.

Shannon,
which nationality are best looking for you? (men and women)?

and ugliest ones? )
peacetraveler22

For women, I like the Nordic or Latin look. They are strong, not so skinny, yet still feminine and natural. They don't wear as much make-up as Eastern Euro or Russian women, and I don't like women with faces so painted. I'm scared to know what's underneath. :)) For men, it's too hard! I don't discriminate. However, I like dark hair and strange personalities. A more rugged, mountain man type with a creative or artistic streak. Like this photo. Johnny Depp - hot! :)) How about you? What type of women do you like?
