So cool. I'm glad to hear that your plans are get finalized. Can't wait to hear more as things continue to come together. Sounds like you have some great plans already. I'm so jealous and happy for you at the same time!!! I wish I could go with you.

We'll chat soon, I hope.

Still planning on the Peace Corps. I'm in the middle of the process, so the earliest assignment I could take would be starting next June. So that's the basic plan...hopefully really brush up on French while I'm living in Switzerland and then be even more prepared to go to French-speaking Africa (if that is indeed where they end up placing me).

You'll have a great time! Air Canada is quite a good airline.

If you can, you should get to Eastern Europe. It's the underappreciated part of Europe, yet in many ways has my favourite spots.

Prague is absolutely beautiful. Gdansk in Poland looks amazing. Budapest is breathtaking, and Bratislava is a nice little city as well. Croatia's coastline is, IMHO, the most beautiful in Europe, and Sarajevo is both culturally diverse and heartbreaking at the same time. There's a wealth of stuff to see, you can do it on a relatively small budget, and the people are among the friendliest in the world.

cool. I've travelled many many airlines, but not Air Canada. So I am looking forward to adding it to my repetoire.

I'm really hoping to get over to Eastern Europe as I've heard it's less touristy, cheaper, and has lots of undiscovered gems. I have a friend in Budapest, so if I can get ahold of her, mebbe I'll swing over there. Also would like to see some of Austria and I want to get down to Croatia and Slovenia. Guess it will depend on the time and money. *boldly going off the beaten backpacker trail*

What a coincidence!!. I'll also be in Europe till december before heading to America in January. I'll be landing in San Francisco to visit a friend who'll be studying in Berkeley by then. Then heading south over the Pan-american highway to Costa Rica where another should be working on a research project by then. After that I'll fly to Peru and travel on through Bolivia and Paraguay to Sao Paulo and perhaps Rio de Janeiro, and if my schedule and money work out fine (still working on both of them) I'll return home somewhere in August/September next year.

Awesome! btw, if you're going to be home in October, I am trying to work out plans with some of the other Dutch interferencers to get together. Wanna join?

Budapest IS very touristy, just as Prague, Lake Balaton and parts of the Croatian Adriatic Coast. But apart from that, there's relatively little tourism in Eastern Europe

I like Air Canada because they upgraded me.

Ah, Eastern Europe. I wish I could go there. Someone also told me about Croatia having a beautiful coastline. *daydreams*

Budapest is very touristy. In the last decade or so, the KFCs and McDonalds' have really invaded, and it's a pity, IMO.

Lake Balaton is really nice to go to, and they serve THE best Hungarian pancakes in the area. The ones filled with walnuts are the best.

The Croatian Adriatic coast is very busy all summer long, and August can be terrible, because that's when Italians get their yearly vacations, so they flock over. If you could get to Dubrovnik, definitely go. One of the best cities of Europe, without a doubt.

Have an AMAZING time! I'm very, very jealous, as I was born in Eastern Europe, and part of me will always consider it home. I'd love to know what you thought, if you decide to go.
