    Here’s my trip to Roskilde. A few destinations need to be culled. Afterwards I plan on settling down in Britain for a few years.

    Any input would be great!

    If you’re going to settle down in the UK, why not fly into France and save London for the the end of your trip? Since you’ll be in Belgium anyway, add Brugge to your itinerary. Beautiful city worth the stop.

    I thought I’d touch base with some rellies in London first, but that does make a lot of sense. I could just as easily do that on the way back from Roskilde.

    Thanks for the tip about Brugge. I don’t know enough about any of those northern countries (like Belgium, the Netherlands, Northern Germany- or, come to think of it, most of Europe ) that I want to travel through to know of good places to stay.

    Cool — I like your itinerary a lot. Spending a lot of time in each city — the only way to travel! Smile

    I didn’t think I was staying all that long anywhere- I can easily spend that time doing interesting stuff in Adelaide or Melbourne even though I’ve been to these cities many times before. But seeing as this is an international trip and time is usually restricted, I suppose it is a relatively long amount of time for each place.

    I’m seeing the European leg of this trip as like a bag of pick and mix choccies- If I like a place I can always easily go back later. I think it’s a good way of going to the Roskilde festival; some travel to get the feel of Europe before a cool festival, then back to work. The American part is a bit different- not being quite so close to the doorstep makes it a bit more difficult to easily go back to.

    I’ve also posted up the second part of my trip here. It’s slated for later than this one (possibly even as late as the summer of 2011), hence the new thread.
