Posted:Hey, in the spirit of Neon's thread about his travels, I haves makes one of my own, for ma up n'coming trip away from the work (handed in notice) and around the world... !!!



I'm excited...



I think my general plan is: Leave in March/April to New York... then SF... then across the big puddle, stopping on some tiny flec of an island on the way, to Aussie land and Singapore and Thailand and Japan for the NFF before slinking my way back home... next (09) year.



I wanna do tons and tons of spinning and learning, and meeting all the crazy bods from around the world who spin too... I'm bored of these UK spinners... wink



Well that's the plan.



There are festivals I would like to go to... like:



IJA July 14-20th AMERICA

BORNFIRE June SINGAPORE

Wildfire June 5-8th / sep. - AMERICA

FireDrums May 1-4 AMERICA

Play July/August UK

EJC August 2-10 GERMANY

Common Ground October AUSTRALIA

MelJC September AUSTRALIA

JFF September - JAPAN

JJF August JAPAN

BJC March UK

Berlin june/july GERMANY

531Con October FINLAND

campburnyourself july SWEDEN





and the ones I'm going to really try and get to:



BJC March UK

FireDrums May 1-4 AMERICA

BORNFIRE June SINGAPORE

Play July/August UK

EJC August 2-10 GERMANY

Common Ground October AUSTRALIA

JFF September - JAPAN





I'm getting the feeling that zipping back to europe might not be so hot an idea... but well, we'll see...



Any advice, ideas and offers of couch's mucho appreciated and gratefully received.

Sweet! On a purely selfish note, i want you to be accepted, so there is at least on (almost) english speaking person at the JFF that I almost know! That would be nice. biggrin

So you're saying that while you're away in japan, I can borrow your apartment? wink ubblol



I have an apartment now??? Why have the tinfoil hat people not told me about this?!

It would be good to be in the company of English speaking peeps at JFF, so the feeling is (almost) mutual tongue

Posted:Hey, you americans just don't understand proper english. (You should be glad bluecat didn't start talking in his weird proper scottish accent aka: doric. Then you would have absolutely needed the subtitles. So would I.)

And god knows what uncouth idioms and made up words they use down in aussie land.
