    It's still a unique, beautiful city, even in the rain.

    By the time I was eight
    I'd been to
    Bremerhaven
    Wetzlar
    Giesen
    PAris
    Bergen
    Heidelberg

    In a VW Bug painted army green...
    1947-49
    Few major memories...

    You could buy most anything for
    A pocket full of Folgers(from the kitchen)
    Or
    A Lucky strike(stolen from mom's purse)

    I can remember the weird feeling I got one morning in Hamburg main station shortly after I moved here. I looked at the destination boards... not just different cities, but different countries!

    I propose that traveling sucks in general. I didn't usta' think so. But now I'm old.

    Long time ago I lived in San Rafael
    My oldest lived in Tacoma
    I'd get on the scooter every couple months and ride up to see him...
    We'd go out to Vashon Island and fish for Ling Cod....
    Don't think I'd do that any more...

    Yes, been there - done that. No need to repeat. Travelling (like drinking) is for the young.

    ???? I disagree.
    <= 50 at least

    The older you get, the older young (and old) gets.

    My mom's friend recently received a very bad cancer diagnosis :)() and my mom said "but she's only 80!!" with complete sincerity.

    Oh, I don't feel old at all and I don't think 50 is old either but when we say that travelling is for the young, around 30 is it IMO. After 30 a lot of people start families and have kids, spending a lot of time away from home with a family waiting is no fun.

    Hmmm....well, I had my family late, I guess. And I like to go away without them sometimes, but I guess haven't done that for more than a week at a time. It's nice to have a break.
    And both my parents used to go on trips with their respective friends for a week or two, well into their 50s. Perhaps it's just harder when kids are small.

    Yeah, it gets easier the bigger he gets. A lot of people now travel well into their 70's and 80's. There's a difference between traveling for recreational purposes and traveling for work I think.
