Milan is far from a ****hole, pretty impressive city in my eyes, and the people were fantastic. Naples, I agree with your assesment there, though travel round the other side of the bay, see Sorrento and the Amalfi coast, definately worth it.

Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!

Seemed like a bit of fill in the blanks with a countries name, not overly specific, just vague generalisations
Besides, your safe from crime in Ghana so long as you dont reply to emails with your account details.
Edit: Actually, reading it, does seem quite indepth, i take that back. Though it seems to suggest Ghana's not as dangerous as the UK

A few shots of places I've visited...I'll try to find more.
1. Leith Dock area, Edinburgh Scotland: used to be a dodgy area and is where 'The Proclaimers' come from. They've cleaned it up a lot in recent years though and it's a pleasant place to hang out at a cafe or a pub now.
2. One of the markers on the border between Slovakia and Poland: A two hour walk in the mountains fom Zakopane in the south of Poland gets you to this point. You can follow the border from here on a number of trails to different sites. It's also where one of the skifields is.
3. A Loch in the Scottish Highlands: Visited this on a 3 day tour to the Isle of Skye. It was on the mainland, but I forget the name of the loch!
4. Houses and the mountains on the Isle of Skye:A brilliant place to visit...even if everything was shut on Sundays! So quiet, and the scenery is spectacular.
5. Night shot of Gdansk Harbour:Formerly Danzig, and a great spot to visit. Coming from a beach-side town I always enjoy being by the water. The narrow laneways and beautifully rebuilt town square are nice spots to hang out. Oh, and the girls working at some of the restaurants are beautiful
Overseas places I've been to...
That I liked:
Honolulu (easily my favourite)
That I didn't like:
Paris (been there twice and it rained the whole time both times so maybe it's unfair)
It's a little while until my next trip overseas, I'm trying to save up for it while still paying my way through a Law degree. Hopefully I'll be able to afford a big trip after I graduate in 2012, including the Kentucky Derby (been dreaming of going to that for about 10 years).
I liked Vienna...didn't put it down though as a favourite. The day I got there last year they had a free concert with the Viennese Philharmonic at a Palace and then I watched the Viennese Boy's Choir at a church at another palace. It seemed to me to be all Vienna stood for in 4 days
Surprised at the lack of visits to Ireland by the people on the forum, especially the 'big' travellers.
