I'm currently planning my next Italy trip, tentatively March 25 - May 6. I want to go back to northwest Italy, I've yet to fulfill a long-term goal of seeing Sardinia, and I'm spending a week in Rome with a partner, so I'm figuring out how to tie them all together. As a bonus, I'd like to busk Pisa: I've never liked it as a tourist destination, but I think it may redeem itself through its university nightlife.
Next fall, schedule permitting, I'd also like to go back to South America. The last trip was an amazing experience while being financially difficult, but I think I've figured out ways to make up for it. I'm going to stick with one country, I've found a local source of cd duplication to avoid immigration hassles, and I had an epic week in Valparaiso so Chile it will be!
And I continue to brainstorm future tours. I'd like to combine southeastern Italy with Croatia and Bosnia, hopefully in 2016. I'd like to do another Argentina trip, focusing on the Rio de Plata region and dipping back into Uruguay. And, tentatively in 2017, I'd like I celebrate my fortieth birthday as I spent my thirtieth, on an extended tour, which hopefully will concentrate on Greece and Italy.
I'm hesitant to share future plans because I'm superstitious and even when things go right they're subject to change based on my whims. However, I'm at a stage in personal growth where I'm deliberately trying to break out of my secretiveness and looking to generally overcome my superstitions, so sharing here seemed a logical step. I remain hopeful and flexible, which isn't a bad mantra to embrace.
