Here we go! After much discussion and planning we finally decided on Europe for our October vacation this year. I will be travelling with my mate Chris to London, Paris and Berlin before heading home via Frankfurt. We were originally meant to visit South America but amazingly it ended up being cheaper to travel much further to Europe. I’m really looking forward to seeing all these 3 cities again. I have not been to for almost 10 years. So far we have booked all the the accommodation except Paris. Paris is proving to be a little more complicated than I had thought. But I’m sure I will find something soon. In the meantime… bring on October!
I just remembered where I was this time last year. As I walked up Castro Street on Easter Sunday in San Francisco people were yelling Jesus Christ! at the person I was walking alongside. I really do love San Francisco… there are so many bizarre and creative people living there. There’s always something or someone new to meet whenever I go there. I’m really looking forward to my visit there in May.
Well this is very exciting news. I have been holding off talking about this until all the bookings were actually made. The last time I tried to book a trip to the US this close to the departure date it all fell apart because I could not get all the bookings I wanted.
I’ve booked to travel to San Francisco 7th May and New York 13th May. I’m staying at the guesthouses where I stayed on previous trips. They both have a really nice feel about them. And since I am travelling alone it’s always nice to meet other travellers which rarely happens in a big hotel. Both cities are very exciting and I have friends in both places. It will be my 8th visits to San Francisco and my 5th visit to New York.
Now I’m hoping this huge collage of my previous visits to the US will load okay. You may have to download it to see the full size.
