Let's fly away!

When things get really busy, sometimes I just switch my brain down a gear and dream about our next holiday/travel adventure. Late last year we planned a 6-month trip (due to start in September this year), but my decision to stop working and finish my studies meant we had to ditch our travel plans. Poor G - he's really in need of a break.

So here's the new plan (in its embryonic stage) for next year - just my initial ideas at this stage:

Iran - Isfahan, Tehran ...
Turkey - Istanbul, Cappadocia ...
Romania
Slovakia
Russia - St Petersburg, Moscow ...
Germany - Berlin, Flennsburg, Hamburg, Speyer, Munich? ...
France - Paris and countryside ...
Spain - Barcelona, Granada ...
North-East USA - Virginia, Massachusetts, Maine, New York? ...
Eastern Canada - Newfoundland/PEI, Toronto ...
Western Canada - Vancouver and surrounds ...
Western USA - Portland, San Francisco ...
and finally, a Pacific stop somehwere for a bit of sun-lounging on the way home

If you're local to any of these areas or have any suggestions about places to include or avoid, please feel free to leave a comment! It's always great to have some insider information.


1. Isfahan/ Imam(Shah) Mosque, 2. Aya Sofia, 3. Easter Eggs (Romania), 4. Slovakia, Belianske Tatry Mts., 5. St. Basil's stripes, 6. endlich himmelblau, 7. Goat Cheese Making 101, 8. Alhambra, 9. PHL Sunrise, 10. Red Shed, 11. Sunset on the Golden Gate Bridge, 12. Snorkeling

[whispers]But you love design ! Where are Stockholm, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Antwerp? Or have you done those already? Go oooon ditch eastern Europe and head north!

I knooooooow! One of my greatest desires is to travel and live in Scandinavia - I absolutely adore the northern European sense of style, design, and simply breathtaking natural landscapes.

My choices for this coming trip are determined somewhat by commitments to visiting friends and of course, our wallets. Boo!

Well Annapolis MD is near Virginia, and I'd say NOT summer unless you like hot and humid. Fall is great and if you get to MD my town is lovely, historic and a nice walkable day. (I'll even give you parking hints.)
