What's the best trip you've ever been on?

In 2012 I went to Alaska with Gigi, I stayed there for five weeks and felt amazing. Not only the snowboarding was perfect but also all the lifestyle that came with it. I'm really looking forward to go again.

 What is the best story you've ever heard?

 I got one in mind. I wasn't there but my friends told me the story. They were basically partying home and one of them scored a chick. He goes to her place and starts to do what a girl and a guy do when the boy friend of the girl gets there and starts to beat my friend and kick him out with only his shorts and shoes. After that he goes to where he was supposed to stay and get locked outside with no key, no phone, no nothing. So he decides to go where I live a few miles away cause it's always open home. He hitchhiked and a guy took him thinking he was so miserable. This time it was locked home so once again he was locked outside but could get in next-door, which is a dryer room home. The only thing he found as clothes were some pajamas of my mum. He put it on and took the bus back to one of my friends where he could finally get in cause the parents were going to work.
