My next trip.... well, it's my "I Just Graduated college and I Got Into Law School" trip.
First I will go to Santo Domingo for a few hours just to get a bite to eat in the old town (a UNESCO World heritage Site)
Then I'll jet over to Lisbon Portugal for 3 days to see the sights afterwards I'll go to Madrid for 4 days. I studied abroad there once and I want to say hi to my old buddies.
After that I will be going to Berlin where I'll join a Contiki tour for 2 weeks. This tour will go to Vienna, Prague, Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest, and in transit through the Slovak Republic.
Then I'm off to Helsinki for 4 days for tourism, one of which I'll boat to Tallinn, Estonia (again as a tourist)
I'll then board another Finnair flight to Copenhagen for 3 days of sightseeing.
Then I have to fly Iberia in coach (did I mention the rest of this is all in J?) for 3.5 hours to MAD
where I will probably sleep in the airport (unless I my old professor will let me crash at his place). In the morning I'm back in J and on my way to Tel Aviv. I don't plan on spending much time there as my family lives in Jerusalem. I'll be there for a few days and will probably fly down to Eilat to see my dad and have a swim at the beach. I may drive over to Taba, Egypt for lunch just to say that I've been there.
Next stop is London for a 10 hour layover, but no worries, I'll find a way to entertain myself.
That night I board the upper deck of a Boeing 747-400 to fly to Rio De Janeiro (via GRU
). My 5 days in Rio should be sufficient to enjoy the "marvelous City", as the locals call it. I do hope that I'm not robbed. Or killed.
After Rio, I want to be a part of B.A. - Buenos Aires - Big Apple. Sorry, my GF
loves Evita. I'm on Lan Chile (or is it just LAN) via GRU
. 3 days in Buenos Aires to catch up on old times.
Then I fly down to Mar Del Plata where I hope to see old buddies of mine. I'll be there 7 days.
After Mar del Plata I return to Buenos Aires for 2 days.
What trip to South America would be complete without a stop in Montevideo (most trips, actually, but not mine). So be it, two days in Montevideo it is.
Well, just when you thought I'd be sick of layovers, I have a 12 hour one at MIA
waiting for my flight to Lima, Peru. It will be great to be in the States for a few hours.
In Lima I have a half a day where I'll really only have time to tour a Catherdral that I want to see and get breakfast in the old part of town.
I then go on to Cuzco, Peru where I have 3 days, one of them is of course going to be spent at Machu Picchu. Then I fly back home via Lima.
My dates are June 13 - Aug 8.

If you live in any of the places that i'll be in, I'd love to meet up!
