Spring Travel Plans

Colosseum in Rome
Rome is one of the many places I'll be revisiting
The last few months haven’t been the most exciting in terms of my travels. I had a great time in Puerto Rico, Acapulco and Hawaii, but other than that I’ve been attending conferences and doing other stuff necessary to running a travel website.

This spring however, I’m going to be going back into hardcore travel mode!

Thanks to the assistance of my friend Amy, who is now the keeper of my calendar, I have a pretty solid schedule for the next three months. I’ll be visiting a lot of places I’ve never been before as well as a few that I have visited previously.

If you are in any of the cities I’ll be in and would like to meet up, let me know.

April 15- April 18: New York City, Adobe Lightroom Workshop

April 18 – May 1: Prague, Czech Republic to Venice, Italy
I have no idea what my route will be yet, but I plan on passing through Brataslava, Vienna, Salzburg and Ljubljana.

May 1 – May 10: Cruising from Venice to Barcelona.
I’ll be on the inaugural cruise of the Carnival Magic. Ports of call will include Dubrovnik, Messina, Naples, Civitavecchia (Rome), Livorno (Florence/Pisa), and Monaco.

May 10- May 12: Road trip to Andorra
If you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for tiny countries and Andorra is a reasonable drive from Barcelona. I should also get some great photos from the Spanish Pyrenees.

May 12- May 20: Switzerland Trip
I’ll be visiting the major cities of Switzerland as a guest of Switzerland Tourism. Schedule included Zurich, Bern, Geneva and Basel.

May 20 – June 4: Budapest to Istanbul
As one of G Adventure’s Wanderers in Residence I’ll be going on my first tour of 2011. The route from Budapest to Istanbul will pass through Romania and Bulgaria.

June 4 – June 10: Somewhere in Canada
I’m not sure where I’ll be yet, but I should be doing something, somewhere in Canada.

June 11 – June 12: TBEX 2011, Vancouver
I’ll be speaking at the Travel Blog Exchange conference in Vancouver.

June 13 – June 20: I’m guessing I’ll use this time to catch up on work, but I have no idea where.

June 21 – 26: F1 Grand Prix of Europe, Valencia, Spain

June 27 – July ???: Andalucia, Canary Islands and Madrid, Spain
I don’t know the exact dates or schedule yet but I’ll be visiting the south of Spain. I might make some side trips to Ceuta and Gibraltar.
