This question might have been asked before but do you guys get to see the sea that much ?

I saw it yesterday for the first time in.... well, a very long time. And I felt sand underneath my bare feet for the first time in many years ! It makes me wish I would spend more time by the sea smile.gif

I wish we had sea. sad.gif We are a landlocked country and I saw sea for the first time in 2010. And when I traveled to US in 2011. But my plan is to go abroad every year for vacation. Lets see if we can make it this year. Thai beaches were very hot. Didn't really like the weather although sceneries were mesmerizing. smile.gif

Nice experience Ben! I have gone to the sea at least once per year since I was born and the energy and sensation that you feel when you have all that immensity in front of you is fantastic. smile.gif

I live 30 minutes from the beach, but I don't sea the see very often. I lived with a friend of mine by the ocean last year, but before that I hadn't really gone in years. I don't do very well in hot weather, so I tend to go high up into the mountains if I go outside to visit people. The new band I will be playing with at the end of the year(hopefully) used to do a lot of outdoor concerts under the stars somewhere up in the mountains every winter. That is going to be an awesome experience if I pass the audition.

Yes! It is a Black Metal band that disbanded(no pun intended) in December of 2009. They were actually the first Black Metal band I ever listened to, so it is kind of like a dream come true, in a way, to play guitar for this group. I was contacted by the bassist/lyricist in mid-February and he asked me if I wanted to do some studio work for them. If I do well enough in the studio and they like me, I am in. There will be nearly an entirely new line-up since the black metal scene in Southern California imploded around the time Xasthur called it quits.

Because anonymity in the Black Metal Genre is important. It isn't a well-known band, so have no fear, no one is missing out on anything!

I live (and grew up) in Florida about 20-30 minutes from the coast. I do get to see it quite often and couldn't imagine not living near water.

Ben,

Thailand is awesome. The beaches look like heaven. I never left this country before (I am/was too poor). In fact I never left this small town until I was 18, how sad is that? sad.gif But in 2010 when things started to shape up a bit, I spent most of my savings to go on our '2nd' honeymoon, just to do something different and to remember. We actually went to 3 different countries for 2 weeks and Thailand indeed was the best. I couldn't stand the heat / humidity though. To further get the trip interesting, we went to a far off Island called Koh Samui and spent a full day going to an island to do some snorkeling. I never had done that so it was mind blowing. Getting to see fishes swim by you in the clear blue water (Pacific Ocean) was simply amazing. I really wished I had a water proof camera to store those moments.

We see it quite a few times a year.

We usually go to San Lucar or Puerto de Santa Maria near Cadiz on the Costa de la Luz here quite a few times a year. We have friends with a flat in San Lucar and they very kindly lets us use it for free. My wife and I keep talking about retiring to Puerto Santa Maria. Both towns have some lovely beaches that face N Africa - and on a clear day you can see the N African coastline. San Lucar also has a day when there are horse races on the beach. We also usually go to the beach at Bologna (Between Vejer and Tarifa) with my daughter's school for a long weekend camping in the Summer. Bologna is hidden away so is unspoilt; it has Roman ruins on the beach front.

Oh and we go to Cadiz as well and Chipiona and so on...

The Costa de la Luz is really nice as it's not over developed and is much more Spanish then the Marbela/Malaga coast line.

Sometimes we also go for a few days to Nerja where my wife's brother has a holiday home. That however is on the Malaga coastline so it's a good place where we can practice our English.

I don't think you need to practice English, hahaha. You write English far better than most people from the States.
