where in fl did you take your screenshot?
Screenshot is neither Florida nor California, but Southern France. Between Nice and Monaco; a small town i lived in for 8 weeks in 2009; Villefranche-sur-Mer, opposite the semi-famous 'Welcome' hotel. I travel as much as i can. I grew up in the Mediterranean (Ionian isles technically) as a child, so that particular area is where i try to escape to.
I am most comfortable when i am out of my element lol. I speak, read, write, and understand 4 languages fluently; working on number 5 this year. I try to spend as much time as i can in the native country as work allows. English is my second language (first language is Greek). French (as spoken in France, not Quebecois) and Spanish (not Mexican Spanish, but Spanish as spoken in Spain) are third and fourth respectively. 2011 my focus is on basic comprehension in Italian, and more work in French and Spanish. My goal is at least basic understanding in 7 languages, and to become fluent in the languages of the nations that interest me.
When you think about where you are, and where you have been, juxtaposed with where you wish to visit and where you can explore in terms of time and economies, it is truly a big wide world after all. There are no substitutes for real experiences, period. Live, love, do; repeat till you drop dead. Enjoy the journey, the learning and what you don't understand.Edited by Oglethorpe - 2/5/11 at 12:52am
