Your Next Vacation

Thu Feb 24, 2005 11:53 am

What are you planning on doing with your next vacation? I know this sounds childish but I am planning on going to Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio. Ok I am 36 but I still LOVE rides!

Well, the NYC meet will actually be my first chance at a vacation. Then, I'm headed to Europe (Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, Germany) from September to late December.

... or did I already do enough unsufferable gloating about that trip?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

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 and SCL. 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.

The Routing is:

JFK-SDQ AA A300 J
SDQ-SJU IB 743 J
SJU-MAD IB 743 J
MAD-LIS IB A320 J
LIS-MAD IB MD87 J
MAD-TXL IB A320 J

MAD-BCN IB A320 J
BCN-TLV IB A320 J
TLV-LHR BA 763 J
LHR-GRU BA 744 J
GRU-GIG BA 744 J

MIA-LIM AA A300 J
LIM-CUZ LP A320 Y
CUZ-JUL LP A320 Y
JUL-LIM LP A320 Y
LIM-JFK LA 763 J

Cost:
50,000 HHonors Points
130,000 AA Miles
20,000 BA Miles

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

My next real vacation is this summer:

12 Night Scandinavian Cruise on Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas.

I'll start off in Buffalo where I will be spending time with extended family. From Buffalo I'll fly to JFK on JetBlue to connect to a Virgin Atlantic A346. Thanks to my dad having a ton of SkyMiles, my family of four will be traveling to LHR in VS Upper Class Suites.  Big thumbs up We will spend three days in London before heading over to Harwich to connect to our ship, where we have two balcony staterooms.

Once on board our schedule looks a little like this:

Day 1: Dapart Harwhich
Day 2: At Sea
Day 3: Oslo
Day 4: Copenhagen
Day 5: At Sea
Day 6: Stockholm
Day 7: Helsinki
Day 8: St. Petersburg
Day 9: St. Petersburg
Day 10: Tallinn
Day 11: At Sea
Day 12: At Sea
Day 13: Back in Harwich

That day its back to LHR to return to the US, finishing up our busy vacation on board a VS A346 in their Upper Class Suites!

It will be my first time in London, as well as all of the aforementioned cities/countries, and my first time traveling on Virgin Atlantic and any International J-Class product.

Only 5 months to go!

Flyboy,

I don't see how you're earning 50K in Hilton Honors points. That means you must be spening $5K on hotel bills. Also you said you're taking a tour for part of your trip which means you cannot earn HH points.

Did you also factor in the 1 mile for every dollar spent with HH?

I'd love to know how you're earning all these miles.
