    I so need my vacation now...

    I just survived mid terms and I just feel soooooooooo overwhelmed still. I really wish I could just pack up and run away for a couple of weeks...

    I still have 79 days till I can do that. *sigh*

    can we just fast forward to January? It'd be SO much easier!

    You have my simpathy. January will be here sooner than you think. I wish this course I am taking would be over as well. :(

    If you want to go overseas for a vacation. You should come to Austria, I am originally from there but I am a student in America now.

    I've always wanted to visit Austria... don't like flying, though.

    I am with you... especially long overseas flights.. it makes me very uneasy being in a confined space with a lot of people for a long time.. and always a fear of a crash... however unlikely as they are. I usually just try to sleep through them.. but then the destination is worth it.

    I don't worry about crashing... I just don't do well sitting for long periods... and I get air sick...

    considering it takes a full day to get from Alaska to the East Coast and then another, what, 8-10 hours to get from the East Coast to Europe? that's a lot of travel... I'd have to have a lot of spare time to do that vacation the way I'd want to (I want to visit Luxemburg- where my family hails from originally, Austria, and Germany... that part of the world and its history facinates me)

    Ahhh, winter in Vienna is magic. Gluhtvein sold on the streets... Christmas decorations everywhere... Wouldn't mind going there at all! Of course, I don't know when my son will be ready for such intensive traveling, not when I'll be ready to leave him with my folks for more than 15 hours...

    Where in Austria are you from?
    Edited to add: OK, I saw it in another thread. Salzburg is, I think, one of the most elegant cities I've ever visited. You're lucky to live close to it!

    I am often quite homesick for it, but it's looking a lot like I am going to be heading home for Christmas holidays. Austria is absolutely beautiful all times of the year, I am particularly fond of the summer, our hills, our mountains are so green. The world does not know so much beauty until they set their eyes upon my beautiful Austria. Just a bit patriotic I am, I guess. But if you had an idea of what heaven on earth would look like, it would be Austria. Carinthia here..



    Our neighbor nations such as Slovenia, Czech Republic, and Italy also offer a lot as far as natural beauty and architecture go.

    Oh, Alaska is quite lovely... Russia is right in the backyard.

    I admit as a proud Austrian, it does hurt when some ask if I am from Australia, when I tell them I am from Austria. They think we are the same place.

    and yes, I can see Russia from my house!
