You know… with 2008 drawing to a close and no further trips booked for the rest of year, except of course a couple of weekends away, now is the time to start dipping into guidebooks, planning and scheming next year’s adventures, with an eye on 2010 as well!
I love this bit. Everywhere is a possibility. New challenges? Re-visit good old favourites? 2009 should be well interesting however. A year without flying but hey, I’m not planning a trip to the seaside either. There will be no compromises in the choice of destinations.
A strong option at the moment is a three-week trip to Germany; Poland; Kaliningrad and Belarus by train next summer.
Travel magazines and editorials are now releasing their top 2009 travel tips – the new up-and-coming destinations. Tour companies are releasing their new trips. So, the guidebooks are open. The atlas is on the floor. I’m plotting itineraries right now.
I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, I’d be interested to hear where you guys are planning to go next year.
