It’s so true! I’m flying to the UK in March and heading vaguely east starting in April.
So, friends, family and teh rest of the internets, where should i go? What should i do? I’m looking for advice, stories, warnings, whatever. Starting in April i have an open schedule and nearly unlimited time (although very little money.)
Do you live in Europe? Want to recommend a city? Looking for a visit? Want to put me up? Have any friends out there? Let me know!
I haven’t taken a vacation in ten years. Help!
I know a writer living in France and one in England. Let me know if you'd like me to put you in touch with them.
That'd be great, Pati. Please!
Know someone in Norway and in UK.
Had a blast when I did the pan-Europe jaunt in 07. The best part of our trip was wandering in search of lunch through Annecy, France and getting into a really intense talk with the sandwich vendor, about America and France and sandwiches. Never had such a fulfilling moment involving sliced bread. And oh, the bread. It's bread heaven all over Europe. If you're there in June, I would recommend the Festival International du Film d'Animation d'Annecy, and even if you're not there for the film fest, the animation museum has a GREAT exhibit from the last year's festival.
Evan, thanks! I'll be in England/Scotland for over a month and will definitely be in the area of Norway later.
Animation museum! Nice!
