Have you or will you at least be(en) able to hike and camp in Montana, Vincent? So many great places to do so out there.

I have a host family here and maybe they will have time to do something. Apart from that I have not been nearly as able to get around as I would have preferred to. For camping it's getting too cold now and the higher parts of the mountains are already covered with snow. I have been to the hills around Missoula which was pretty nice. I really wanted to go down to Yellowstone but with no car and uni stuff keeping me too busy from just taking a few days of I had no luck, yet. The week of Thanksgiving we will have off, so hopefully me and a few friends can do something during that week.
I really would love to add a holiday semester here with no classes so that I could then go explore Montana.
The weekend there was an organised trip to St. Glacier National Park I attended a wonderful wedding in Delaware.

I did one whitewater rafting trip which was amazing. Definitely would do that again in a heartbeat.
Once I'm ridiculously rich I will come back to Montana and get around the state. I really love how the state has realized what an asset they have in their nature and the effort they put into protecting it. The state is larger than Germany, yet only has around 900,000 citizens. That makes for vast amounts of uninhabited space.
Unfortunately, November won't be less busy, so I'm afraid chances are low to see much. But if any opportunity should come up, I will take it. And from what I have seen I really can recommend putting Montana on the travel list.

I will also try to find a place for my internship here in the US. Don't know where that will take me, and if it will take me anywhere in the US, yet. But I guess that won't be in Montana. The opportunities for an economist are rather limited up here.

Do come to australia, as our dollar is down the toilet at the moment, you can do such wonderful things for about 5 cents!
In 2002 when we were 50 to the us dollar, our american exchange students had an absolute ball.
Don't be like me, with a trip booked to Europe and madly checking XE a thousand times a day crying into my cheap dollars.

yes, im feleing a little bitter at the moment.

AW i think those places are great, especially Africa. I would love to do that one day!

Next year I will be going back to work after getting my MA, so I'm lining up trips to make up for lost time. While there are so many place I would like to go to, Greece, Hawaii or somewhere in the Caribbean will be my first stop. I just want to go to a place where I could hit the beach everyday of my stay. Hawaii and the Caribbean will be ideal. Greece would be nice to go to the islands and also see the ruins and all, but maybe I'll save my history tours for some other time.

I think they're down to 8-9 hours of sunlight (and going down) right now. So I would wait to go to Iceland. And the prices seem merely in line with what they should have been all along, although there seem to be some great off-season discounts.

On the other hand it never gets totally dark in the summer - I took this of my hotel in June ('05) at 11PM or so

There was a pic, but it seems the hosting site is having problems since it's not loading anymore.

Yeah the Iceland pic was deleted or something. Here it is again (plus another one) - nothing exceptional, except for the fact that they were taken between 11 and midnight. This time of year, it would be darker than this by 4pm probably.

It's always an excellent time to go to Iceland! Spent the whole summer there in 2006 and fell in love with the country. It's simply the most gorgeous place on earth if you ask me.

The daylight thing would be the most disorienting thing ever. But I would like to go.

I'm going to Iceland in a month! It's been on the list forever and I know people there now, but now finally got to be the time with the dollar being stronger. I actually started planning to go over the summer, when the krona was about 80 to the dollar, and booked right before it really crashed... Despite the short days, I'm really looking forward to the trip.

i highly recommend iceland!

Iceland Air used to offer terrific packages where you could fly, say, roundtrip NYC to London, but have a three day stopover in Reykjavik.

but this was 6 years ago, and you could get such things in the neighborhood of $400.
