I've actually never been outside of Canada. I rarely even venture outside of this city .__.

I've never left the country either. The farthest away from home that I've ever been was Bemidji, MN which is about an hour away from the Canadian border. :3 I loved it though, it was beautiful up there.

I've never left the United States either, let alone the Eastern Time Zone.. I want to go to either Canada and meet up with a good friend of mine or go out to California for a long-way from home road trip (or flight trip if necessary).

The farthest away from home I've been was NYC.

The last time i took a vacation was back in 2011 with my family. We went to see my dad's family in Richmond, VA then we took a trip to Norfolk, VA and stayed in Williamsburg. While in Williamsburg we drove around the colonial areas, went to Jamestown and sight-saw through Yorktown.

Furthest I've traveled was when I went to Philippines. But that was like 18 years ago :C

The furthest I've traveled THIS YEAR was when I went to the other end of my city ._.

I live in Yorktown and work in Williamsburg! We get a lot of history-loving tourists around here pretty much year-round...

I've been across Canada and to a few states in the US but that's about it. I went to Greece and a few other places in Europe when I was ~2 but I don't remember the trip so I don't really count that. Canada's massive though so I'm proud of having been to all the provinces. The US and Canada are both so big that not having left the country(/continent) doesn't have to be deprecating at all. The coasts and everything in-between varies so much that sometimes it really is like going to another country but with all the comforts of home.

My mom's tentatively planning a trip to England and either Italy or France for next year but I'm not getting my hopes up too high until actual plans start coming into play instead of just hypotheticals. :(

Well, here's pleasanton so it's an average suburb.

American dream ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh it's boring.

The only place we can really go is San Francisco with all its glorious Japantowns and Pier 39s (I hate seafood what am I talking about) and such.

Also, somewhat not related, why is saltwater taffy called that? Why not freshwater taffy? It's also very sweet, so it's really confusing.

I haven't left the United States either, and I've only stayed in the Eastern Time zone too. Furthest I've ever been from home is Florida to Disney World, which is apparently the standard "go when the kids are too young to remember the trip" vacation in my family. Last vacation I took was just a day-trip to Boston to meet up with an old friend and just spend the day there.

As for any future vacations, can't say I'm taking any. I will be having a week off from work in August, but I'm going to be spending it in Connecticut, looking for a new hamster and just spending time with friends and family.

I do want to go to Greece though. A less extreme trip would be one to New Jersey (don't laugh) because there are stores down there that I want to see for myself. And North Carolina, but that trip would be combining business with pleasure as I want to move there.

As for deodorant, I'm currently using an Axe spray. After this bottle of Axe is done, I'm going to try a stick of Irish Springs that I got for cheap!

One legend states that a shop that sold regular taffy was flooded with ocean water. When the shop reopened, a little girl asked for taffy, and the shop owner said that he had "salt water taffy." The girl bought some because it was new and exciting!

Another legend states that it was named by children calling the taffy any name when they bought it.

Technically, it has salt and water in it, so...

Just gonna toss this out there, but salt water taffy is amazingly delicious. Too bad I haven't had any in years. I gotta find a place here in town that sells it.

I cant believe I'm saying this, but I had to research what salt water taffy was to know about it X_x

Yeah, it doesnt look too healthy for teeth xD but I'm not sure what'd be worse.. that or eating homemade caramel popcorn balls. I had one of those before and boy was it stuck to my teeth for quite a long while...

I hardly have popcorn anymore because I hate how the kernels can get stuck between your teeth so I try my hardest to absolutely avoid it.
Also raspberry seeds.. but raspberries are worth it because yum-factor *_*

Aw man it's the worst when you get that one piece of food stuck in your teeth and you spend all day trying to wiggle it out with your tongue.

The glory when it does come out though ahah.

Related: I'm allergic to artificial raspberry flavouring. Not sure which one but I know it's the one raspberry soft drink, red gummy bears/frogs/snakes/candy animals but not Frozen Raspberry Fanta you can get from McDonalds.
Ask me how I discovered this!

How did you discover it? j/k

I like the taste of raspberries very much. From raspberry yogurt to raspberry lemonade.

And for food allergies, I'm not allergic to any foods afaik, but I haven't eaten everything in the world before xD

Was hospitalised from one can of raspberry flavoured carbonated alcohol beverage.

Ew no, no, no, even the smell of real raspberries upsets my stomach. The worst part is people tell me all the time I'm missing out on the best flavour.

Hmmm... food allergies... I think I am allergic to seafood, will just get rashes later on if I eat a lot, nothing too special.

However, I have a pretty weak stomach, I get diarrheas eating practically everything, however, I am used to it.

Red meat? I rarely eat them, cos I cannot eat Beef due to religion reasons, and I think Pork is under white meat right? Not sure about it, but I mostly eat Pork only.

I eat a lot of green foods as well, my entire bowl is almost full of vegs, but maybe its because I eat too much green apples.

Oh, disregard the red meat thing. Have you tried, higher protein and less fibre? I definitely recall reading protein helps with that kind of thing.

What about eggs? Are eggs allowed?

Eating too much of something is not really healthy. Even if it's vegetables ;(

If you can't eat red meat, then eat substitues to replace the! lost vitamins. You should check which item has proteins in it because you're lacking with the absence of red meat. Also include lemonade in your food or drink it. Orange juice also helps a lot with diarrhea.

I love it when my meat is cooked medium or medium rare.. it's softer and more tender. Oh all this talk about food is making me hungry xD

I like my steak just a notch above medium, so that it's still juicy and tender but with absolutely no signs of pink in the middle.
Our french class went on an excursion to a french restaurant in year 7, they gave me steak cooked blue and I did not expect the amount of blood that came out. It also tasted like raw meat.

I'm allergic to some preservative in food that I have yet to properly identify. Or at least I think it's a preservative. I can't pinpoint it.
And turkey. I kind of like breathing, so I can't eat turkey anymore. I:

plus virtually every animal that has fur haha.
I can't think of a good signature.
