I've just been over at world 66 - where they have a great tool for mapping your travels.
Well it seems that I have visited 64 countries and 22 US states. I'm not sure how (or when) that happened. But here are some of my more obscure moments and mishaps:
Eating a lunch of millet and dust with a 100 year old woman and her giant tortoise (who looked younger than she did) in Mali, before going out to check what the fortune telling foxes had to say.
Running down the Jaffa Road in Jerusalem, away from a bag of tomatoes that was about to explode. Admittedly it was originally thought to be a 'device' but when the soldiers exploded it, it looked like a jar of Dolmio had gone off.
Having a late dinner with Liza Minelli in Missouri (admittedly, she had a very strong Eastern European accent) and the octogenarian waitress asking me how 'my country' was coping since Russia pulled out. I think she thought I was from the Ukraine, not the UK.
Falling asleep during a meditation session in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Dharamsala. I fell asleep, fell sideways and crushed the big, fancy hat that the monk sat next to me was holding. The shame.
Finding the perfect beach to camp on in New Caledonia. Thinking we had the place to ourselves. Then finding a French Navy base round the corner. I was upset that our idyll wasn't as it seemed, but then, when I realised that the matelots had their playtime on the beach (and that they had a bar) I was very, very happy.
Being locked on a stationery train on the Chinese/Mongolian Border with no toilets. I needed to take a leak as soon as they locked the door. I got said leak ten hours later when they finally let us off the train. Meditation came in very handy.
Waking up on an overnight bus in Egypt to find the 'gent' next me had his hand deep in my trouser pocket. He wasn't counting my change, trust me.
Meeting my self-declared long-lost twin on the train from Delhi to Shimla. Bless him, I don't think my mother ever knew she'd had an Indian baby. It took me five days to lose him again.
And you've all heard about my body cavity search in Israel, so let's not do that again. The memory of it does not serve me well.
So, what I'm after here are your own personal travel highlights. Surely I'm not the only one that these ridiculous things happen to?
