  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
(No Subject) by jambopoppy on 27 October 2009 8:53pm
I think this website is fantastic as travel is so exciting and varied that there are always stories to tell. I believe that programmes, like michael Palin's, combined with the new innovations in travel and technology more and more people are learning about this fantastic world around us. Although travel can be easy, due to fast and complicated changes in the world around, us I prefer it when its just a little bit stressful and requires a little bit of hard work. Well you wouldn't want to be lazy. I think that that is half the fun and who knows maybe it could lead onto something better tha expected. Some of my best holiday memories have been from either the excitement from being lost in the rockies or going to unknown hidden treasures untouched by anything but nature. I think that full enjoyment can only be obtained if you work for it and aren't just given it. This could be said about many things in modern day life. It turned out for michael Palin that an unwanted trip to Dubai turned out to be one of the best bits in the series. Keep to the path less travelled on and then you will be able to make the experience independantly yours.
I have been fortunate to see most of the world and I am only fourteen and, from what I've seen, it is aninteresting, exciting, and 'wonderful world'. It is getting easier and easier to do so take advantage of that and enjoy it.

P.S just a recomendation for a fantastic holiday go to Canada, hire a car and tour the rockies. Oh,and see the bears too.

Q: are there really "Bears" in Canada? Is that maybe a basketball or football team?

For those who admire black bears,there is an excellent BBC documentary on BBC2 at 8 pm tonight [Wednesday],made by bear-admirer Lynn Rogers, and called WALK IN THE NORTHWOODS. He found that black bears will tolerate the presence of humans,even the pregnant females,and that they are actually not too keen on honey if there are plenty of ant larvae for them to eat besides.
