The letter of invitation thing has changed now Jakko. It is no longer needed for many foreigners. The government of Krgyzstan wants to make it easier for tourists so they can get some much needed foreign money into the country. Citizens of many countries can now get a visa on arrival. But being a third world country one never knows what complications are in store when one encounters buerocacy there. I am not sure whether waiting to get to the airport in Bishkek or sending my passport to the Krygyzstan consulate will involve the least BS.
India, Cuba, Laos, Italy and home sweet home, Australia!
Costa Rica, by far. It has an old world charm, mixed with very pleasant people, and hardworking. Reminds me of growing up in Newfoundland which is on the far east coast of Canada. Also a really great place to visit, a mix of Irish, English, Scottish, and great people!!!
I met somebody who was born and lived most of his life in New Foundland when I was in Canada Tim. I was amazed to hear that he had a heavy Irish accent even though he had never been to Ireland. It gave me the impression that there are very closed Irish communities in New Foundland.
Newfoundland has small towns and many different dialects, some are mixtures of Irish, and others. Most began as fishing communities. Some have a thick Scottish type accent. The scenery is beautiful, rugged coastline, and open seas, and whales to watch. Maybe you can go there someday!!
I want to go there Tim.
I am curious to see if the places where a lot of Irish people live look like Ireland.
1. Cambodia - amazing country - horrible history, but great people (despite the history)
2. Italy - what's not to love - Rome, Venice - history, food
3. New York - give me a buzz
4. Spain - the food, the food, the food
5. Laos - relaxed, friendly, amazing
I can send you some pictures Mell
