I'm going again. :cool:

I prefer visiting lesser known areas. Any suggestions from those of you who live in Europe?

No, Finn, I am NOT going to Finland.

Visit the Jura in France, it is my favorite region! Arbois is a totally cool little village, and the wine/cheese is great and they have their own cured hams that are really, really great!

I was thinking about staying around Eastern or Central Europe. Going to France would be out of my budget, unfortunately.

How about Greece? Some of the coolest ancient temples on the planet! Unfortunetly many of them have been destroyed some by earthquakes. But it's a beautiful country. Iv'e been there many times! Just get to close to the Turkish boarder. "gulp" It's a dangerous area.

How about coming to Serbia?

I went on a five week tour of Europe a couple of years ago and Serbia was one of the best places. I would say Serbia, Croatia, and Slovina were all great places, the people were nice. I only wish I got to spend more time there.

I would say if you can get to Romania as well, I spent three days there and would love to go back. All of those places, especially Romania, are very cheap.

Maybe you should go to Prague or Estonia or Romania. I can't wait to go to Romania.

The only place I have been to in Europe is Ireland. I saw a lot of it though.

My flight to Europe did not go as smooth as I had planned. The flight from Las Vegas to Chicago was nearly three hours delayed "due to weather". I was supposed to arrive in Chicago at about 6 o'clock PM central time, but instead landed five minutes past nine o'clock. By the time I got off of the plane, it was 9:15 and my next flight was due to depart at 9:55 PM. Anyone who knows O'Hare airport knows it's a b*tch getting around, especially from one terminal to the next. I had to get from terminal one to terminal five, which was where the international flights were to depart. So I waited about ten minutes for the tram and when I got off, I literally skipped stairs and dashed to the gate. I was the last person to go through security, almost forgot half of my belongings, and didn't even both to put my shoes back on before getting to the gate just before 9:55. The funny thing is... the weather in Chicago got worse with thunderstorms and we ended up waiting about an hour on the runway for it to re-open.

Needless to say, my luggage didn't make it onto the plane to Warsaw. My bags finally arrived yesterday morning.

I really want to visit Croatia, but there aren't any definite plans yet. I'm making them up as I go. LOL

JediIndy, this is definitely not the place to ask that, and it's truly insensitive and ignorant of you to approach vaxer with that particular question. Take your culturally inept attitude elsewhere.

Anyway, I booked a trip to Hungary today. I wanted to take a trip to Romania, but my aunt forbids it. She doesn't want me hanging around "those gypsies". LOL I'd sign up for the trip regardless, but I'm beginning to lean towards a cheaper one that would take me to Prague and Vienna.

She doesn't want you to go to gypsies but she says OK for Hungary. How funny.

I know. Ironic.

There were a few tours for Serbia, but unfortunately out of my budget.

Tell me, what are the prices there in Croatia? I might come to Dubrovnik myself, so I am asking.

The prices aren't too bad, but they are getting more expensive.

When you were in Bosnia did you go to Visoko. There are two hills that realy look like piramides. Some archeologists are trying to prove that those actualy are piramides. It is still fresh and it's a great oportunity for and Indy fan like you.

Magda

No, I didn't go. The trip to Medugorje and Bosnia was a last minute trip we decided to take.

There is always a next time though. :)
