I think the housing market is bad everywhere at the moment. But recession always has to end some time, right?

haha no just four im doing architectural technology which is different to architecture, i learn all the science behind the building and realise what i can and cant build, whereas an architect has no... background into science and so has to have an engineer check all his work is actually build-able! I'm learning 2 peoples jobs in half the time haha

What a curious combination here, people from all over the world, creating “one world”.
Thanks to some creators we keep the average age low here ;-)

Rose, to come back to your previous question. I left Holland in 2005.. Before 2005 I was living in the UK; Beds, close to London and I’ve visited beautiful Oxford and Howard Castle in York. That was in 2004. Madrid is OK, liked it more when I was a student, the whole approach was different back then. What I like from Madrid is that it’s different from the typical coast, however the weather is a bit hard here. Between late October and the beginning of March, it’s freezing at night . However the days are nice and I love the cold as long as it’s dry! Summers are horrible, above 104 F, like today. Our air conditioning is running over hours.

And Tyu, do you know which is the biggest mall in the world? I’ve visited the Edmonton Mall in Alberta (in 1991), Canada, that one was pretty big. Loved it.

Nivaso, i agree, it's amazing that we have people from all over the world and different ages working on one project.
Judging from what I read, you're quite a globe trotter.
How wonderful that you studied in Spain! I can understand that it's different when your a student, opposed to actually living there. But i didn't know that about the weather. In my imagination it's always sunny in Spain, lol! But do you like it better there than in Holland?

England has got some lovely sights too. I've been to London a couple of times and I have family living in a small village in Stoke-on-Trent. For my cousins it's an absolute mind numb, but when I visit, i love the country side so much. For a Dutch girl any sight of a small hill can be overwhelming, lol!

For 2 years I lived in America, and Tasia, it's so nice to hear you're from NJ! Are you in the north or in the south? When I was there I first lived right by the border in NY. It was so amazing to see the difference between the industrial places, like Newark, and all the picturesque villages. You can't believe you're in the same country! After a while I moved to Baltimore, which was very beautiful too.

Anyway, I think I've done enough rambling, lol!

So you lived close to the border of NY? How nice. Love the States, spend lots of summer holidays there, loved the autumn landscapes like in Dutch Pennsylvania. In general I love the houses in the US and as you said, lots of picturesque villages over there. Rose, you studied/worked in the US?

I’m not really a global trotter anymore, used to be though. But now I spend most of my trips visiting family and just getting a day older ;-) like to relax and do not so “impressive” things. I finished college when I was 22. After that I started working, but always wanted to go to Madrid.

Yes, the biggest mall is the one in canada, but it is only bigger by having a water park, the mall of america actually has more stores, you can get married in the mall of america, there is a complete church inside of it! Along with a college! Its insane!

When i was about 10 my family took a trip all over Europe, we visited, hamburg Germany, Paris and London, and it was just a great trip! I wish i could go again, i would appreciate the architecture and the museums A LOT more now that i get it, lol.

Please don't say that, I'm dying to go to London someday

So fun indeed to have so many people from all these different countries and different backgrounds. Seems like a lot of you have been moving a lot. Lucky y'all I did too but i wish i could travel even more.

it just blows me away, that we all see completely different things everyday, all over the world, and yet we can all create a world that goes together. (: unbelievable in my opinion! hah.

I really enjoyed london, there were so many cool things to see, when we were there planet hollywood had just had a fire, so we had to eat somewhere with no american food, it was quite the experience. haha!

Hahaha! My god that's funny!
Food is so different everywhere. My cosins in England consider beans on toast a meal. I'd never be able to do that! But to us eating raw herring is considered very normal.
American food is a whole other story. I found it soooo addictive. The supermarkets are almost 10 times as big as ours and they're filled with snacks. Aside from peanut butter & jelly there was nothing I didn't like.

Lana, you're from France, right? So are probably the most culinary refined person amoung us.

Nivaso, I did work in the U.S., but the main reason I moved there was for love. I married an American. The marriage did not last, but I really had a good time there.

Oh, I know about the getting older part. But sometimes I'm still restless. My dream would be to get a camper and just drive thoughout the U.S.

How did you end up in Madrid after you finished college? Did you get a job there, or did you just decide to pack and leave?

Well that explains a lot that you went to the US. The most important thing is that you had a good time there. - I went for the same reason to Madrid as you went to the US ;-), but the reason I ended up in Madrid and not another Spanish city was because it was one of the cities I liked most in Spain. It’s very different from the rest of Spain. I didn’t have a job though, so yes, it was like pack and leave. About the camper, I think many Dutch share that dream with you. I love driving in North America, it’s so relaxing.
But than once again, it’s “relaxing” haha. My best holiday memories are those where I was close to a place where there were mountains, lakes, rivers and forest.
