My wife and I were in Spain walking the Camino de Santiago - a 1000 year old pilgrimage route across northern Spain. We were mid way on our two week 200 mile hike when a young guy from Lithuania spotted my wife’s power T windbreaker.

We were the only three people for miles on a dirt trail and we hear “Go Vols!”. Turns out that he had been an exchange student in Knoxville. He loved UT football and the beautiful coeds. We talked for the next several miles before he left us in his dust — we are vintage Vols.

I was joking about Thailand,

But 2 years ago I got a Go Vols in El Nido, Palawan.
The guy was there on vacation, from a co-op with the Philippines Military forces. They were island hoping in pusuit of the militant groups that migrate there. Isis being the latest. This gentleman was CIA if we're to guess. He gave me a Go Vols after only hearing my accent. I was not wearing TN gear...

Djibouti, Kandahar, and even tiny Diego Garcia.........there always seems to be a fellow military Vol everywhere I’ve gone. We definitely represent the Volunteer spirit well.
VolNavy01.....You have been to some strange places...only in Djibouti a short time..thankfully, and people need to Google Diego Garcia...just for the geography knowledge. I spent 2.5 years in Timor Leste, only one grocery store on the island and ran into a Lady with a T purse. She was a teacher for the UN... We are a VOLNATION!

We go to Litchfield Beach in SC. I know that is not a crazy place to run into Vol fans, but, I will my block "T" cap around specifically to get a "Go Big Orange!"or a "Go Vols!" Sure enough, I get a response like that every year! There are Vol fans all over the world!

When I first moved to North Carolina, I was going down some back road to a Walmart one afternoon. I have a front plate with a Power T on it and some man in an SUV approaching me hit his breaks real fast, rolled his window down, pointed at the front of my car, yelled “GO VOLS!”, gave me the thumbs up, and then drove off.

Just noticed last night at Tropicana Field that going up the escalator from the lower entrance of the 100 level to the main level on the Left field side of stadium. There is a picture of a UT fan that appears to be Scotland along the right hand side of the rail. Unfortunately given the Rays attendance not many others have seen it. Always hear a Go Vols each game.
