    dennis begkamp is a football player that played for arsenal(i think) for many years. He has a fear of flying so in the champions league he only played the home games of arsenal

    France - 3 times: Paris, Brittany (work, but also did some great trips there), French Riviera.
    U.S. - 2 times: LA (work, combined with trips), SF Bay & NY (same).
    U.K. - Euro 96 Soccer championship, mainly London, but also travelled to distant cities hosting games.
    Scottland, Ireland, Wales (and a bit of London) - honey moon trip (amazing trip!)
    Turkey - Antalia
    Greece - Rhodes
    Netherlands (and a bit of Belgium) - All over
    Georgia - All over (best trip so far)

    I've been to the following

    Canada-toronto and Niagara area...should I even mention this, i mean Canada is like a commonwealth/state of the US, right ajaxballer?

    China-Shenzen and Hong Kong for vacation

    Japan-Tokyo, Chiba, Kanazawa...meet my girlfriend's parents, sight see eat drink be merry all @ their expense...im such a freeloadin bum

    Philippines-Cebu, Baguio, tagaytay, Laguna, Manila<----the dirtiest absolutely dirtiest city I have ever been too. I mean the country itself is a developing nation/3rd world but Manila is just dirty/hot/muggy/and a place where people aren't that friendly...

    Will be going to Germany this October. I've always wanted to visit this country there is something about Germany that just makes me jump with joy...the beer

    Italy is another place I'd like to visit, but I am afraid I would get fat from mass consumption of food
    Greece also for the uzou and I would liek to visit some of the ancient battle sites like Thermopalae(spelling?) and drink uzou again

    Lithuania
    Latvia, two times, both in Riga (beautiful city, nice girls)
    Estonia, 3 times, Tallinn and Saarema(?) island (nothing special about these trips).
    Poland, Cracow, 1 day only.
    Chech Rep., Prague and areas around the city. XXX times I like Prague, I think it is very comfortable city to live in.
    Slovakia, Tatrai mountains, at summer time, hope to come back there at winter
    Hungary, Budapest. Lovely city although Danube river was stinking a lot
    Austria, Wien and Salzburg. Mozart home-city impressed me a lot. Amasing central(?) garden with fountains and lots of flowers with a very picturesque view to the castle. Adding Villah and Lienz.
    Switzerland, Zurich, no memories left, only beer
    Germany, Berlin, Hannover (cheap clothes ), Heide Park, American-Hills, Big Loop all was awsome, had a realy great day there
    France, Paris and 2 times in Taize camp. Great memories, met lot of new friends there, cheap wine, girls from all over the world etc
    Portugal, Porto, Braga and Douro river region. The longest trip which lasted 4 months actualy I was studying in Lamego with Socrates program, but I would't call it "studying" Everything was great there, the country, football, people, Porto wine, girls (they are just crazy ), traditions, nature etc. The only thing strange to me was their eating habbits. Imagine, they eat meat, stake or whatever with garnish in which they have potatos and rises at the same time, and no vegetables at all , they drink coffee so much and it seemed to me that 90% of people are smoking (yup, hashish too )
    Belgium, Charleroi, ULEB Cup final game Rytas vs Real.
    Egypt, Sharm El Sheih, diving, pyramids etc. amazing!
    Turkey, Antalya, Kemer, Pamukale. Missed some Olympic group stage games due to this trip
    Italy, Torino, EuroCup Final8.
    Poland Wroclaw and Lodz, Eurobasket2009
    Germany Bremen
    Spain Malaga, Unicaja - Rytas. Barcelona, Barca - Zaragoza.
    GBZ Gibraltar
    Serbia Beograd, Pionir, Partizan - Rytas.
    Portugal once again Faro - Lisboa - Porto.
    Slovenia Jasenice and Bled
    Latvia Riga, U19 WC'11 semis and finals.

    Well guys looking at your lists I feel bad, the only place I visited outside Portugal was Lloret de Mar near Barcelona in Spain. I surely would like to travel a lot and know a bit of northern Europe which fascinates me, but unfortunately it's not easy if you know what I mean.

    I've only been to Germany (Dusseldorf, Aachen, Köln, Hannover) and the Netherlands (Maastricht, Wageningen). and I've looked towards Belgium where the borders of 3 countries intersect. :P

    I'm on my way to Hungary, Spain and, maybe Greece in a few years time.
