  The Chatter Box : Welcome and Introductions
hello! by zakdx on 24 January 2006 3:20am
hi my name is dave and i live in london i am 16 and also like every 1 here ive got the travel bug. ive just been back packing around finland for 2 months and loved every day out there its an amazing country. i stayed with many familys and meet loads of new people. i also did many things that palin did in finland like the famous sauna! soooo hot!! i did also jump in the lake but the diffrence was we had to cut a hole in the ice and it was freezing!! but all good fun :D. i will be setting off for the rest of europe this may for 4 months visiting friends just like finland. i was just woundering if any one has any ideas for any places i should visit or any websites they could point out about traveling around europe and the best way. at the moment im flying and getting a train to mostly all of europe and staying with friends in some countrys or camping at scout jamborees which are taking place. i was also woundering if there are any younger people on this chat room, it would be nice to talk to some younger people who enjoy traveling also!

Hi Dave and welcome to the site. I live in London too.

There are quite a few younger people on this site (not me, unfortunately, LOL). What countries do you intend visiting in Europe? If you intend visiting Switzerland, there is a website called My Switzerland which is quite good. www.myswitzerland.com

Heya!! I'm 15, think i'm the youngest here. Are you on a gap year then, or have you left school completely?
Re: hello! by zakdx on 24 January 2006 11:12pm
thank you sue for the helpful links, and ive just dropped out college and gone into a ful time job till the summer. but ill go back to another college in setember so its kind of a mini gap year. just i took the wronge a levels and they have nothing related to the actual job i wanted to do. so ill take a better route this time round. but it gives me an excuse to travel, so im just working getting some cash and back packing around europe.
