I'm going to the booming metropolis of Fargo, North Dakota (pretty much a little hick town) for a traditional between-Christmas-and-New Year's trip. We stay in a hotel, eat out, and go to Target! As for actual trips, Greece is an option this summer if I can get the money, otherwise I'm going to work for a bit, then who knows where? New Zealand, and Australia are likely options.

In four months I'll be leaving for 4 months all over europe, then 3 months in SE Asia, then how ever long my money will last from that point forward in Japan. I'm guessing that it will be an alright time.

My first UK/Europe trip...

London, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, Germany, Czech Republic...

I should point out that some of that is on a Contiki tour so it's not as mindblowing as it first seems heh heh. But cool nonetheless :D
Nine weeks tomorrow til I go!!!!

Nothing definite, but potentially some cool places like Austria and other unnamed locations. Stay tuned

Europe - sometime before the end of 2006. Two months in summer if a job opportunity comes through for me quickly, or two weeks during winter break in December. Please let me get hired...

I'm travelling W. Europe for a month, Italy, Spain, Benelux, Germany, then E.C. Europe for a month, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, Greece, and Turkey if there is time. Then I'm planning on finding a job doing TEFL in either Poland, Czech Republic or Hungary. Going solo and I can't freaking wait. Just gotta finish school and keep saving the moolah!

South America baby! Jan 11 to Apr 5. (you guys have probably seen my posts on this already). After that I will work to pay bills and hopefully hit up New Zealand with a work visa then Oz/SE Asia after that.

Next up: Dominican Republic

Winter: Spain, possibly Morocco for a tiny jaunt.

I need some filler between now and then... Or maybe I should save some money.
