On Travel lust

So traveling makes me want to travel more. But I think after thinking of possible 2011 travel plans, I may have to just stay put in TX this December, despite having a 2 week vacation coming up. I just paid for MGM Grand hotel in Vegas, and Andy and my flight to Ithaca. Not cheap.

Current 2011 travel plans:
- WPPI Convention (wedding and portrait photographers), Las Vegas, Feb
- Cornell Reunion, Ithaca, June
- Known World Dance and Music Symposium, Indiana, July
- 2 dance camp in a row, Richmond, VA, August
- Boardgamegeek convention, Dallas, November
- Indonesia (maybe Singapore too?), December

Skipping Pennsic this year.

I would also like to do a small trip this year to either Switzerland (crash space available) or Costa Rica (cheaper then Switzerland).
I'm assuming Eivind would let me stay with him in Norway too? I have too many friends in the Bay Area. :-P

Yes, travel is a major reason why I drive a 12 year old car. Why renovate my bathroom when I can go to... Costa Rica?

Yeah. It's like 2k for a bathroom renovation. I really want a new tub though.. so one day I'll have to suck it up.

Even the car thing... a new car is 25k! That's like 9 trips!

Can you believe our 10 year college reunions are this year?

You met Fred at my wedding, right? He's in Lausanne Switzerland. I'm sure if he's still there (leaving sometime in mid-2011 for points unknown but probably stateside) he'd be happy to provide crash space for a couple days.

I know right!!

At our 5th year reunion, someone told us:
5th year - everyone's looking good
10 year - everyone's married (we're on target!)
15 year - everyone has kids
20 year - everyone's divorced!

:-P

Fred! Sweet. My friend is at Lusanne too! I don't know if I can afford it this year, but it's definitely one of the countries on my short list!

Ha!

For my 5th year all the girls looked hot and the guys less so.

For our 10th year EVERYONE has kids. In fact I know 4-5 people who won't be at reunion because their babies (some 1st, some 4th) are due in May-June! I guess Grinnellians are ahead of that curve.

Singapore was ok in my opinion, too much city and port traffic to be tropical, but why your in the area hit Thailand and Bali :)
