That's right, eduardo has finally convinced me to get out of American and see that there really is a place called Europe. And it doesn't have to cost and arm and a leg to visit. So, i am planning on traveling to Europe and staying for about 10 days.
When: November 24 - December 5 (2004)
Where: i am planning on seeing the following major cities:
I would like very very much to meet as many European Perlmonks as i can, and any offers for a "free" place to stay would be wonderful. I am willing to buy dinners and such in exchange for a floor to sleep on. :D Can't offer a place to stay? Let's just meet for a beer. The cities i listed are just preliminary, i leave that list flexible in case a few monks really feel i should visit elsewhere. I just want to get out and finally see Europe. Maybe i can do Asia next year. ;)
I figure that if i start planning now, i can develop a good travel plan. If you are interested in meeting me, or if you have any advice at all, please respond or /msg me. Also, if you know of other European Perlmonks who might not have been around the Monastery recently, please feel free to /msg them this node.
UPDATE: Majority seems to agree, limit. So i knocked out Rome and Berlin :.( . By the way, eduardo is helping plan and prepare (he's from Spain) and he reminds me that once i visit Europe, i will go back every year. So ... next time. :)
My plane lands in London and my flight home departs from Amsterdam, so those two cities are set in stone. Adding Paris makes a nice tight triangle, and Brussels is in on the way to Amsterdam from Paris ... but three is probably plenty. Thanks again. :)
