Right now my prospective plan is a few days in London, a few days in Scotland (probably Edinburgh, but maybe Glasgow), and a few days in Japan (likely Tokyo). If I reckon I have enough funds, I might stop in Vegas or another Pacific-side spot for a few days before returning home. I'm going to research prices this week and get my dates worked out. My itinerary will have to be finalized in the middle of next week so I'll let you all know the plan then.
share your prices when you do, just to know. i imagine you're super anal and will find all the good deals :lol:

I actually just got my itinerary approved today, so I will share all the juicy details now!

So, the original plan was London-Glasgow-Tokyo, but I realized that flying to Tokyo would be a 35-hour trip and I'd be moving forward in time. So I'd essentially be pissing away over two days of my vacation, and that seemed like a gargantuan waste. So I am *not* going to Tokyo. East Asia will have to be its own little trip some other time.

Now I am going to London (landing in the early morning 18 JAN, leaving mid-afternoon 22 JAN), then Glasgow (22-27 JAN), and then I'm going to Dublin (27 JAN to 01 FEB). A two-week tour of the British/Irish Isles, essentially. Very much looking forward to it!

Bry, Tony, if you want to meet up then the optimal period would be from the 18th (Friday) through the 21st (Monday). That gives us a nice little weekend where work shouldn't be a huge hindrance to either of you (hopefully). Let me know what you think.

Gabs, the prices actually were quite nice for the flights I booked: just $1200 when I booked on Kayak. Had I tried to go to Japan, the prices would have jumped up to between $3000 and $4000...yet another reason not to go to Tokyo this time. Ouch!
i imagine you're super anal
You'd probably have to ask some of my exes. :lol: :lol: :lol:

(Surely you knew better than to set me up like that!)

Tony can't reply right now, because he's been locked out of the forums. He sent me to reject your offer. Just kidding. He sent me to shake my fist at Diabs! :lol:

Well, if Tony can't make it to London, then I'll be crawling the pubs on my own. Bry has already informed me that he will be unavailable when I'm there, that rotten scoundrel.

Nice, have a good trip Rey! And yeah, definitely does not make sense to fit Tokyo, that's just too much time spent travelling for one holiday. It would have been quantity over quality; your itinerary would have been too packed to spent any quality time at a single location.

Yes, and thanks!

I will attempt to keep a record of my adventures here once I leave. You'll all enjoy it in two months when you log in the next time.
