    You've just been handed $10,000, under the conditions that $7,500 must be used for travel this summer. You're in college, and you know there are a lot of places you'll never get to see later in life simply because you make your money in journalism.

    Which three or four places (countries, cities, anything) do you go? Why?

    For value added, how do you get there/where do you stay/what do you do?
     
  2. I'm still looking for the $10,000. Where did you say it is?

    And if you were actually given 10,000 bucks, the rest of don't want to hear about it.

    I'd head to Europe with a backpack or may South America with a backpack. Someplace with a backpack at any rate.

    I think I'd travel to Ireland/Scotland/Wales by boat.

    Japan, for the food and baseball experience.

    China, for the Olympics.

    Italy's countryside and coast, to breathe some clean air after Beijing, and just to spend some time in wine country and enjoy the beauty that is the Cinque Terre.

    If short on money after China, England, with a backpack. If really short on money, San Francisco.

    Italy, Spain and Greece, and gain 20 lbs. eating all the wonderful food.

    $7,500 doesn't really go all that far, unless you're looking to blow it in 2-3 weeks. I figure the Seattle trip will set me back in the $1,000 range, and I'm taking an economy flight booked well in advance.

    Don't know if it's feasable, but a fortnight in London followed by a month in a rented RV hitting every as many states and provinces that I can.

    RV and a cross-country trip, stopping in as many small towns as I can.

    Italy ... possibly Amsterdam if I want a little culture.

    Yeah, culture. That's why people go to Amsterdam, the culture. ;)
