So I am curious to see what all you Tpunkers are doing on your next adventures. We have had many so far and just got back from our last one 5 weeks ago in Holland, France and Belgium. Next we are going to:

June 10 Holland
June 15 Santorini, Greece
June 21 Mykonos, Greece
June 24 Naxos, Greece
June 27 Athens
June 29 Back to Holland
July 1 sadly back home.

We are flying in and out of Holland cause it is so much cheaper to buy a round trip ticket there. I found a roundway tick to greece from holland for 119.00 euro each. Its amazing how much more a one way tick is!!!
So anyway, where is everybody elso going on there next trip. We would love to hear and give advice if we know anything. We are also always up for some wisdom from all you other travelers!

Doing some local sightseeing in and around Germany/Luxembourg/Belgium with in-laws next week. In the planning stages for October - either Malta or (if a work situation comes up), either flying to Lithuania for a week or so, or a two week driving trip Germany/Poland/Lithuania. If same work situation comes up, we expect to be cramming as much of Europe into our weekends as possible in the next couple of months. So much to see, so little time...

Cool so far, sounds like a lot of the same areas are being visited this winter. I will be floating around the states a bit this winter, mainly to several different beaches etc... I am still waiting to travel Europe some in the winter. The profession I'm in, only allows me to take extended time off in the summer, so I've always saved up my weeks for summer travel. Though I hear that winter is beautiful in EU. Thanks for the input so far. Its fun to hear where people are going. It kind of allows me to live vicariously through everybody until I get to go back in June. Seems so far away.

I love hearing about everyone's plans!

I'm studying in London January-April, and will tack on probably Turkey/Greece beforehand in December, random little trips around the UK during on the weekends, somewhere in Europe for spring break, somewhere during May, and maybe a stopover in Iceland on the way back. Don't know what I want to do because I always want to do everything but we'll see.

My current plan is to move over to Singapore in the next year or so and hopefully find a job and live over in Asia for a spell...or more if I like it. Job market for expats with my accounting background looks promising and I will have some cash to tide me over, so we shall see. My company will likely be sold next year sometime so I plan to ride it out until after the sale and then hit the road and roll the dice. If I can't find a job then I guess I get a 6 month vacation before coming back to the U.S. In the meantime, while job hunting, there are lots of great places to visit in that neck o' the woods.

Ok cool, I'm glad to see people responding to this post.

U2 fan, I have been researching the shit out of Greece, my neighbor is from Athens and one of my good friends just came back from the Greek Isles for 6 weeks. So, I may be able to give you advice if of course you need it.

Rincewinds Acq. Yeah, please smoke a big fat one for me before the Tenacious D show. That should be a blast in Dublin! and of course as many pints as possible

We also have a trip planned for spring 08. We are going back to Holland (moving there in 3 years so we go as much as possible to research) from there to Denmark and Sweden. 3-4 weeks hopefully a little longer. Our yoga instructor is from Sweden so loads of advice there. If life is good, we will be expats in Holland by spring 09

Ahhhh, the lure of traveling....

I'm going back to Cali this weekend of my dad's wedding where I plan to spend most of it inebriated. (the weekend, not the wedding!)

Then in December I will head back to Cali and Vegas for a few weeks to say good-byes and then in Jan I will hop a plane to London for a week to visit a friend and then continue on to Sweden! I'll stay in Sweden till June and while there make weekend trips around the country and to the UK to visit a friend and other places in Europe. Then when school is done, I'm going to go backpacking around Europe till I run out of moolah. Then if I'm still not ready to go back to school I'll hop over to Cali and spend some time there.

Or who knows I could just wonder around and end up in a cardboard box under a bridge contemplating life :D

Cool!!
So Patchouli Lover, you are supposed to be drunk at the wedding, and as far as cardboard boxes go, I was truly amazed at the amount of people living in boxes I saw in Paris last month. Even the bridge next to the Eiffel Tower had about a 10 box condo thing going on with 2 guys (that I saw) living in it. I was surprised being so close to a tourist attraction. I also saw an impressive amount of tent campers on the River Seine. I think they were travelers, but very well could of been homeless peeps. As for Sweden, my yoga inst. deff. makes me excited to go there. I'm sure you will have a blast.

Millmuff, have a blast in Mexico and drink some cervezas. I know how you feel waiting for the next trip. I am 9 LONG months away, but will travel the states a bit to make up for it.

Later and keep posting your future travel plans, its extremely interesting and inspiring.

marc... dude tell me your a male stripper. Cause then you'd be my hero.


I'm thinking of heading to ireland for a week or two this fall but now i am not sure as it looks like I might be working for a Non-profit up in seattle and they would want me to go to guatemala and costa rica to document some stuff instead.... so we'll see what happens.

The Jake, just how would me being a male stripper make your day? I'm not by the way, but curious what your angle on that is! I'm sure it is nothing negative

I'm definatley not a male stripper, but I bet it is a good way to make cash. Still curious as to what would make you think that?
