Just curious....what trips do you have planned for 2009?

As of right now I have conferences planned for:

New Orleans in mid-March (will be looking forward to the weather)

Denver in early April (I hope there won't be any snow)

Miami in mid April (going to go and look for an apartment, but will stay on South Beach and do some touristy things)

Chicago in early May (will be my goodbye tour of the city; I live 90 miles away)

Once we move to Miami in May we are planning the following:

Bahamas in September for a 3-4 day weekend

Thanksgiving at Disneyworld or Universal Studios (used to be an annual tradition when we lived in CA; since Disneyworld is bigger we'll likely make several trips over the course of the 2 years we are in FL)

Christmas cruise in the Caribbean (probably a 5 day cruise)


I really want to get back to Europe....but with tight budgets for the next 2 years because of my internship, it'll have to wait. Maybe I'll get lucky and will have an international conference that work will pay for LOL

hmmm, so far:

Florida in February--going to Orlando for work & fun! First to Disney, Universal, Epcot, & MGM. After 5 days of fun, 2 days at a trade show (Global Pet Expo) for my business.

April-May: ummm, were going everywhere! DH and I are renting a big RV and traveling the US for a month. Sounds silly, but I've always wanted to do it, and we have to do it before we have children!

June--upstate NY for 2 friends weddings and to visit family.

July--Tennessee, we always go to see the in-laws for the 4th of July.

August--back to NY for my sisters bridal shower

September--VEGAS BABY!! We go every year as a mix of work & play. We go to a pet trade show (SuperZoo) and stay a few extra days to enjoy Vegas.

October--back to NY for my sisters wedding

October-November--perhaps a trip to Hawaii before the holiday season.

Whew--we have a busy year ahead of us!

Gaah, I have nothing planned. Need to find a job first.

When I do, though, I'd like to plan a trip to Japan this year. I've never been there. And maybe a trip to Hawaii for my 5-year anniversary, but I haven't discussed this with DH yet.

I will probably also go to Boston within a month or so with DH as his father is ailing.

No big travel plans for us this year - we've lived in 3 different countries in the last 4 years and have visited another 3 - we need a break :lol: But stuff we've planned locally include:
Vancouver BC in February
Victoria in July
(maybe) Montana in August for a wedding

I also want to check out some of the cities along the Oregon coast (Cannon Beach, Tillamook, Astoria, etc) during the summer/fall but those will probably just be day trips

so far we have 2 confirmed (ticket,accomodation sorted) holidays based on the kids' school vacations:

march/april (easter holiday): 11days, to disney world, florida.

july-august (summer holiday): 8 weeks, to indonesia with short trips to singapore and malaysia. might squeeze in a long weekend to bali whilst in indonesia.

no plans for the "half-term school breaks" yet. maybe just go down to london for a week? might consider going to portugal since my PIL bought a holiday apartment in algarve a couple of years ago and we haven't had the chance to see it (since we were in canada at the time).

for christmas break, we'll stay in UK since my family are planning to come over.

So far a conference in San Francisco and a trip home to Illinois sometime during the summer. I'll attend another meeting but I have to decide which one: Pittsburgh, Toronto, or San Francisco again. I'm leaning towards Toronto!
