Probably local. I am going to Cuba next Wednesday for 2 weeks but that is only a one hour flight. I hope to make a 2 week road trip through southern Alabama and end up in the Mississippi delta region. That will be an auto / tent camping trip as I just love the people you meet in campgrounds when solo.

All is open for after the spring. Probably back to Cuba again but the rest is subject to my whims of that time.

I envy you people. My wife's health won't allow us to travel. My work trips tend to be short and business filled. Little to no time for photography. I can't even find time for local photos as a rule. sigh.

A friend of mine and I had planned a trip to Glasgow, Scotland to see Celtic v Rangers, but I have business to attend to in Finland at the same time. Which means we have to postspone the trip until the automnm, when the Scotish football league starts again. The trip to Finland is one of many business trips I have to take in my work. I will regularly do trips to Stockholm, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Tallinn through the year. Plus visiting a exhibition in Birmingham, England and one in Paris, France later this year.

But my wife and I are going to Singapore Malaysia in March/April. We have booked tickets leaving Oslo the 25th of March. We stay a few days in Singapore before flying on to Tioman Island in Malaysia; our favourite island in the sun. We are fly back to Singapore a few days before Easter and then on to Oslo the 23. of April. We also do some long weekends, often with guests, at our summer house in western Sweden, a two hours drive from Oslo.

paul: let us know if you decide to come so we can plan the monthly NYC RFF meet-up during the course of your trip

As for me, I went to Cuba and Colombia last year so I have to look at the budget for 2012 and it may be a bit tight. Im hoping to make it down to Argentina though, and a trip to Texas to visit some good friends (and eat BBQ) is definitely in order as well.

I wish I could travel more (basically all the time), but such is life

oh ho, Andre, if you require actual barbecue, then any place south but tejas. texicans (and i was born texican) overcook brisket and call it barbecue. it ain't barbecue; pork is barbecue ...

Portugal in April for my wife and me. After that, probably part of the Northeast US ( Mass./Vermont and possibly the Finger Lakes region ). And I always make it back to Pittsburgh ( my old home ) at least once a year.

I'd love to go back to northern Italy in the Fall if finances allow it ( but they most likely won't ).

We're planning an RV trip from San Francisco to Seattle in the spring. Going to cruise up the coast, visit a few national parks, try and find some snow, and visit friends and family. Hope to do some island hopping in the summer and visit family on Kauai and the Big Island.

Safe travels.

Going to Lexington, KY for a week in July. Going to enjoy some bourbon, local food, and the landscape. I hope I come back with a crazy amount of film to develop.

So envious of all the Europeans/people traveling to Europe. If the dollar wasn't so worthless and I didn't need a roof for my house this year, I'd be in Ireland.

Croatia and Copenhagen. Maybe New York if all goes well.
Id love to go back to Japan, but I don't think it will be possible this year. Also revisiting Russia would be nice.

One place is for sure, the other is ...when God wants !

The relatively sure place is - if no major unpredictable events come first - Ethiopia where my wife and me are involved for an adoption. I'm going there with FM3A and a few AIS lenses plus the new Portra 400. Depending on how quick papers are, it might be in late spring or, more likely, in fall / winter 2011.

The second place is - well, it's more a heartfelt wish than a reality - Central Asia. Tajikistan, Kyrghizistan, Uzbekistan and all those republics losts between the desert, the mountains and the Issik kul lake. Some of the most charming people linings, cultures and wonders are there. It's one of those place where I think I could easily stick with and live there, despite it's probably not the most comfortable one.

Third - but this would be a "pleasure" trip, to visit a friend of mine, would be Venezuela but I guess there are other issues there... and however definitely not this year.

First I'm going to Riga, Latvia for a week. About a month later, I'm doing a round trip through Germany to visit those of my friends who are attending university elsewhere. Sometime late this year, I might also go to Britain again.

Destinations are something I find out on a weekly basis - but always Asian
Tokyo in late April, early May to see my daughter for her birthday (...and catch up with Jon hopefully )
Although not a plan with any structure or timeframe, Afghanistan is really my ultimate photographic destination - hopefully one day

[Edit] Even forgot, I'm trying to get back to Australia for a visit later this year; will have been 6 years since I last went home

Nothing's fixed yet, but I'm considering to be at the Art Biennale in Venice, Italy in June, possibly a trip around Thailand at the end of the year and maybe a visit to the Rencontres D'art in Arles, France. But as always for freelancers, it depends on whether business works out as expected...

So far I have two trips planned:
1) Road trip here in Mexico with two good friends who are also photographers. Car will be loaded with film and beer Between the 3 of us we'll have a Hassy Xpan, Nikon F3HP, Nikon FM10, Yashica TLR, Leica M4, Canon A2E and a couple of DSLRs for snapshots

2) NYC, Seattle, Chicago or Toronto with my best friend. We haven't decided yet. She has family in Toronto, but we really dig the idea of NYC or Seattle.

I do plan a trip somewhere in the spring. I do not know the destination yet - it depends where I find a new job. Once that trip takes place I can start plan for the rest of the year. But I hope this new trip will get me somewhere a bit warmer and drier

Belarus at the end of July. My wife spends every summer there with her family and this year we will be in Brest celebrating her son's recent marriage. I go every other year and love exploring the country.

So far we've only planned for Ireland in the spring. I haven't gone to Cuba yet... Last year was support year for gear for me, and I currently have two new travel tripods that I'm trying out. Last year I took a Gitzo to Bermuda and it worked out great. I'll be taking a Benro to Ireland. A good travel tripod is really well worth taking on a trip!
