    Yeah, really! That would be cool.
    But seriously, by boat. It can be very peaceful being on the water.

  7. Nothing beats a boat. Unless you are in Bangladesh trying to get to an island on open sea in a small wooden boat....

    Long story, but yeah. I love boating.

    Oh this sounds like a good one! Do tell! Do tell!
     
  9. It really is a long story and I might tell the whole version of it one day when I feel like it.

    But basically me and this guy I met on the road planned to go to a Bangladeshi island to chill and whatever it is people do on islands. The only boat we could hop on was a small wooden open boat filled with chickens, eggs, food and a lot of other random stuff.
    So we took it.

    First part of the trip was chilled and nice. The people on the boat were amused and amazed to see two 'white' people on a boat like that. Or just to see two 'white' people. Although we were warned at forehand not to jump on this boat.

    Then we got to open sea, the wind started to blow a little harder and the waves started to grow a little higher. And a little harder and a little higher again. The waves were completely washing the boat away, it was steerless and we could only hope to arrive somewhere. Everyone was soaked and all the people aboard (about 8) were screaming and shouting and praying to Allah. I can not really describe it, but it was pretty awesome afterwards to look back to. It was some sort of hell to be in the middle of that.

    The people were trying to throw the water out of the boat with buckets. Useless ofcourse, but they got an A for efford. We were still jumping up and down the ocean in our small boat and had to hold on anything we could grab not to fall overboard. The 'captain' just barely got the boar under 'control' and steered away so to jump straight into the waves instead of sideways. This probably saved us. I think most of us were pretty sure we would sink. At the end we did not sink and reached the island. This took us a few hours.
    The story is way longer ofcourse, but at least you kind of know what happened to our little boat trip in Bangladesh.

    Listen to the locals when they tell you to stay ashore.

    I like driving in some way (car, bus, train) because then you can get a better look at the scenery.

    Usually when I travel cross-country I hop onto the Greyhound bus & most of the time I'm pretty lucky cuz I land in a place that has public buses to get around.
    I have been in a plane a few times & someday I would like to try taking a train across the country, just for something different.
