Every year around Thanksgiving I make my decision about the following year’s vacation destination. After Semester at Sea and graduating from college I promised myself that I would take at least a week each year to travel to a place I’ve never been, as my finances allow. I’ve been successful the past two years with a trip to London and Northern Ireland in 2005 and a trip across Alaska this past May.
This time around I had a lot of very different ideas in mind from Antarctica to Tibet to Australia and New Zealand to touring the castles of southern Germany. While I haven’t made any definite plans yet – I usually book my tickets early in the new year – I’m looking at spending 4 days traveling across Switzerland set in between a couple of days in Paris (though I haven’t settled on Paris for those days) during the first week of July.
I’m always open to suggestions and ideas particularly from those who have traveled there. I’m also open to other destinations instead of Paris for a couple of days at the front and end of the Switzerland portion of the trip. (My email address is at the top of my sidebar.)
