I just finished up my remaining travel reservations for the year.
That I know of.
There's a few days that aren't yet spoken for, so I'm sure something will come along to fill them up. All-in-all it's been a relatively tame year for me (probably because I wanted to spend the summer on my motorcycle). I still managed to reach "gold" status in my frequent flier plan (over 50,000 miles flown), but that's a far cry from the 100,000 I've had to travel in previous years. Usually, I couldn't tell you where I've been and what I've done because it's all just a big blur. But this past year was entirely blogged... so now I know exactly what happened...
And now I'm off to Chicago. One down, four to go...

Just stopped by while blogsurfing via BE. Did a double-take at your blog’s name and desgin — very clever!
Will come back to visit when I’m not doing the rush surf.
i was just wondering why you choose to see munich and berlin while in germany? i found that a lot of times the not-so-popular smaller cities are probably more worthy a visit – especially if you wanna get into the culture of that country. go to a place where they are not used to tourists and where you might end up having trouble communicating in english. i also have to say that your list is really awesome and you certainly can’t blame yourself for not travelling enough during your lifetime. hopefully the “home” will come along for you soon, too.. stop by in bremen, while you’re in germany – i’ll take you out for a beck’s ;o)
The trip I took through Germany this year was part of a “Hard Rock Cafe Run.” Since time was limited on this trip, we only stopped in cities that had a Hard Rock Cafe (though there was a stop at Neuschwanstein, as I very much wanted to see the castle!).
You are absolutely right about smaller cities and rural areas being a much better reflection of a country’s culture. I love to explore the countryside and see how people live. When I travel I try to do this as much as I can but, since most of my travel is for work, I don’t always have the opportunity.
I actually went through Bremen once while taking the train to Copenhagen. Next time I will have to stop so I can take you up on that Becks! 🙂
This hasn’t anything to do with your travel plans (although they do look quite impressive!) I’m trying to track-back your Friday Q entry but it’s not letting me. I’m pretty sure I don’t have the right ‘ping’ URL. Can you help?
Cheers. Keep listening to David Berkeley.
D’oh! Now that’s pretty stupid of me… invite trackbacks, but then don’t provide a trackback URL! I’ve just now modified my template to include the URL for pinging. Just click “trackback” on the FridayQ entry (or scroll to the trackback section if you are already there) and it will list the URL. Sorry about that.
