*dreaming*

I haven't even left for St. Petersburg yet... but I can't stop thinking of new travels.

Especially now that my life after 1 April is suddenly wide open I have been thinking quite a bit about what I will do then.

Travel is one of the options. This idea isn't helped much (well, it is actually) by reading Jules' Rome-stories who is currently well and truly living up to her blogname, by being excited for Cookie's upcoming America-trip, by seeing amazing photo's of a friend's trip to Sri Lanka, and by virtually travelling the Trans-Siberian express...

*sigh*

At least I'm excited to be in St. Petersburg in less than three weeks, especially after watching Russian Ark a few nights ago. A movie set in the Hermitage, shot in one single shot and covering several centuries of Russian history... Quite extraordinary in an amazing location.

[oh, the current travel-plan would take me to NY, Washington DC and then Mexico to wander around Central America for a bit and to catch up with friends ... solid plan, no?]

I plan on being in the US in late July, just in case you want to meet up...

St Petersburg will be a lot of fun - I can't wait to read about your adventures and see some pictures.

It's a shame that it costs (a lot of) money to travel.... and there is always the problem that when you work you don't have enough days off to make a decent trip and when you don't work you've got all the time in the world but not the cash.... How do you solve this unsolvable problem M?

@ Jules -> Oh, that'd be pretty cool Jules - if we'd finally meet in a country so far from both of our own. I'll keep it in mind, although I'm hoping to be there May/June'ish. But well, as you know it's all up in the air right now.

@ Bernadette -> I know. Stupid dilemma isn't it. We were actually discussing this the other day and I figure that if I chose my destinations right accomodation costs could be close to zero. It's the transport in between that'd be tough...

The solution would probably be to get paid for travelling, as a travel writer, journalist, professional adventurer... but well :-/
