It's Show-Off Time! (Travel Edition)
Tell us the most exotic city/place in the world you have visited, and include a picture (or more) of it with your post.
For me, it’s Mexico City. I did a course there in 1997, and loved it. On the same trip, I also saw the Aztec Pyramids, which had been a dream of mine since childhood.

I’m not sure what exotic means really but I’ve spent a few weeks sailing round the Caribbean on my parents’ yacht (you said it was ok to show off 😆 ) including a stop off in St Barth’s. Very nice. But favourite spot was probably Grande Anse on St Martin or Green Island on Antigua.Posted 4 months agoEwanMember
My sister was an aid worker a few years ago and was based in Sudan / Darfur. She suffered a stomach problem (burst cyst or something) which rapidly turned very serious – ended up deciding to let a doctor operate rather than airlift to Kenya as the doctor thought she was about to die. Long story short she couldn’t travel alone so I got shipped out to Sudan to escort her home.
Was a very weird place to visit – was given various briefing notes that told me what to do depending on how loud the artillery was and had to have a walkie talkie with me. The unsubtle secret police at the airport were fun too.
This is a picture of a bridge that had a sign next to it saying if you take pictures of this we’ll shoot you as a spy. I took this from a bizzarely nice hotel whilst eating icecream surrounded by pictures of Ghadaffi who owned the place (he was about a week away from being strung up).
Here is a taxi with a sticker reminding you that assault rifles are not allowed to be carried.
This is the confluence of the blue and white niles.
On balance, i’d not recommend it for a short break!Posted 4 months agoWildHunter2009Subscriber
