Thoughts While on a Holiday Far from Home

I started drawing webcomics around the same year I diagnosed myself with a case of wanderlust, which is the strong desire to travel or explore the world. Years later, with no cure in sight, I am still traveling and typing this newspost from a hotel suite during my vacation. It does not matter whether I am in a makeshift Internet Cafe on a tiny island in French Polynesia or Capitol Hill in the District of Columbia, I am here. The international aspect is what makes TheDuck's community a constant factor in my life.

I have lived in six different cities on three different continents since I joined TheDuck and I am sure I am not the only one who has moved in that time. I am always fascinated by the melting-pot of users on this site that come from all different backgrounds, demographics, and cultures. We all have a unifying hobby of creating and reading webcomics!

Are there any Ducks who are seasoned world travelers? Any users that update comics from a country where English is not the native language?


Leon by UltimateZ reached its 100th page milestone last week! So go celebrate with UltimateZ for reaching triple digit pages by reading (Dead) Leon, a comic about three unlikely friends in a band that fight demons in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

I haven't travelled beyond the European continent yet, but one thing I wouldn't want to miss is communicating with people from all over the world, and that is an aspect of dd which I enjoy and value a lot! It makes the world feel like a much nicer place, than just depending on what the news say about other countries. I was born in Germany and have been living there all my life, but I have been reading English-language comics since my teens, and pretty soon, English became the first language of my comics (and I would only translate them into German for selling them at local conventions).

I lived in Spain a few years - LOVE IT! Been to maybe half the US States, plus Mexico a few times. One Caribbean Cruise sums it up.

I've done some traveling. It's been some years since I've moved over International lines. I want to do it again sometime soon - I lived in the far West and jumped in the Pacific Ocean, and then lived in the far East for awhile (but never got close enough to the Atlantic to jump in...dang! Missed opportunity!). In hindsight, during and even after those experiences I felt more alive, somehow. It really does have a profound effect!

Good topic! I wonder who else is nice and international here?
