Upcoming Travel

Sorry it's been a slow blogging week for me. Don't worry I feel guilty too :) This week I have been busy moving out of the gallery and starting to plan and get ready to also move out of my house and go to europe leaving mid october. If there is anyone out there in europe who might live in these cities/areas give me an email, I would love any travel tips or keys to the local art scene! Thanks!

London
Paris
Berlin
All of Italy
Athens
Cairo
(maybe Spain)

I wish I was a highly paid artist who could pick up and travel the world at a moment's notice.

A trust fund would be nice, too.

I made a similar trip overseas after I finished my undergrad in architecture - the trip lasted three months and I made it to Cario and further south to Luxor - but that was over twenty years ago and perhaps the most carefree time of my life. I carried a fifty pound pack on my back that also had luggage handles - but I needed a sleeping bag because I slept outside on occassion. I Completed the trip on $20.00 per day which I'm sure is not possible any longer. Pack Light! I'm envious.

Cliche is places like Amsterdam...not Cairo. OK Paris is cliche but, uh, it's Paris.
If you are so jealous of Ann going on a trip,
maybe
you should
plan
a trip
for
yourself.
It might improve your mood.

cliche? Grow up! That is the most ignorant assessment for a very serious list. Think about it; your list would be "cliche" too. Or let me guess, you'd want to go somewhere obscure... Why am I waisting my time with this fool???


Good luck Ann.

If you've never been to any of these places before they're all must-sees and definitly not cliche!

The cimetiere du pere lachaise (hope I spelled it right) is a must, must see in Paris! :-) And the baton mouches tour. Cliche, maybe, but enjoyable (the cemetary is free, the boats are pretty cheap).

I was in Cairo in '97 on a school trip and was unfortunate to land the same day at the Museum bombing, so they packed us up and sent us to paris. Very heartbreaking. Most of the great stuff to see in Egypt (Tel El Amarna) are closed to the public now, including half of the valley of the kings. If you're hitting egypt for the ancient stuff, that is. If you can somehow get to Tel ElAmarna it's brilliant. Also, half the Tut exhibit is currently on tour in the US so a lot of tourists are waiting until it's back at the Cairo museum. To tie some of your locale's togehter you might consider that London has 1 of the pair of Cleopatra's Needles (the other is in NY), it's along the Thames, hardly anyone visits it. If your on the historical bent, again.

Italy: food, food, food, food, food, ruins, food, food!! :-) Try to make it to Rome and Vatican City. -M.
