Hiya!  Smile

Just wondering (and trying to kill some time) where people are, planning or hoping to go on their holibags* this year?

I am taking a 26662 mile trip with my friends and my big brother this year to Sydney and Perth to visit my dad in July. GLA - DXB - SYD - PER - SYD - BKK - DXB - LHR - EDI.

No matter how small (or long) the journey, I'm interested to hear.

*holibags: my family's word for holidays


First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

I'm off to live in Spain on 23rd March, so I'll be living it up every night and sunbathing all day, so it will be like a permanent holiday for me.

Summer: Gallivanting around mostly Europe for about two weeks...

Fall: 3 trips to see my beloved Colorado Buffaloes football team play on the road...
@ University of Georgia
@ University of Oklahoma
@ University of Nebraska

Not your typical vacation spots, but going to see the Buffs on the road is like a vacation for me, its loads of fun, win or lose!

Me: as of now

- The Hague, Netherlands = 29th June 2006 for 7 days with my school, problem is we have to use a dam coach, so no aircraft  cry 

Unless I will see any flying over The Hague and I think I am going to Amsterdam (city) for the day, in that week.

And if i don't the closest I am going to get the resembalaence of an aircaft is the model place in the Netherlands, which I have heard has a very old looking scale model of AMSBig grin

Yes, but that's all part of the fun. If I get a job in the bar I want to work in, they all have such a great time, it won't be like work, just one long party.

Doesn't look good this year... we had a lot of expenses because of a new apartment we moved into, so probably we'll remain somewhere pretty much "local"... London or Berlin, but only a few days.

I have a mini-vacation of sorts (I'll be there about 35 hours) in a few weeks in Las Vegas (The soon to be Infamous LAS Meetup).

I'm not planning on taking my proper vacation until sometime in October or November, mainly so I can save up more than enough money for the trip. I'm planning on going back to Las Vegas for about 5 or 6 days, as the room rates then are dirt cheap.

Unfortunately I will have to work, I gotta pay the bills. I might have to go back into doing airport transfers if I don't make enough money working in a bar. I don't mind, I get to visit the airport 3-4 times a week, lol.
