2011. It's time.

Yes, it's time. After Losing my Virginity in 1999 and then after a proper American Experience in 2001 it's time that Iggy and I return to The States. If things go well (money and time wise, of course) we'll hit The New World in late summer 2011. And the plan? Well, we'll most likely fly in in NYC, stay there a few days, I surely want to see people I stayed with in New Jersey in 2001, then it's off to Houston, from there to New Orleans and then back to Houston. And then a big leap to Denver and then off to West Coast, Seattle and further North to set foot in Canada in Vancouver. This is a rough draft, it's getting its shape now and there's still a lot of planning to be done, because I would love a part of the journey as a proper road trip. Flying out and possible last leg in California is still in the air. Well, it will surely be a month I am totally looking forward to and I am certainly looking forward to seeing a bunch of you, people. Because, honestly, you are the reason for this urge in me to come back to The North America again.

I will keep you posted, of course. :)

YIPPEEEEE!!!!

although, given all the beautiful spaces and places where you *could* choose to travel, the notion that you actually WANT to come to this messed up country blows my mind!

big crazy hugs,

What parts of the USA have you been to? Seattle is the most important place on the map, of course. :)

I would love to finally meet you if you pass through Seattle. It's only 3.5 hours away from here.

If you make it to San Francisco it would be wonderful. But I know it's a very expensive addition to any trip.

I would love to go to San Francisco, but I would really love to give it a little more time than just a glimpse. We're also planning a big West Coast trip... From way up nort and all the way down. In a car/camper. Another month. :)

We'll see how it goes.

You've picked some lovely places to visit but you've managed to completely avoid the midwest on your little map thingy. A visit to Chicago or the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/Saint Paul) would put you in range of seeing my smiling face. Luckily you still have time to edit your plans ;-)

Woo hoo!

I also want to chat with you at some point about intra-Europe travel, & coming through Ljubljana, what with my brother moving to Finland (I know, not quite next door, but it's still the same continent....)

Yes, we need to plan all that :)
