Between this Wednesday and the 28th of June, I don’t have any specific obligations in Oxford. Even with the higher cost of late booking, this means that there is the possibility for one more trip to Europe before I spend a year in Ottawa. As such, I am considering my options.
One strong possibility is Berlin. Other than a visit as a young child, I have never been to Germany. I expect that Berlin has a lot of interesting culture and architecture, as well.
Prague is a good possibility, since I have family there and already know that I like the city. Likewise, returning to Dublin has a lot of appeal, though it seems a bit foolish to go back to a place that I visited so recently.
Other European places on my list include Greece and Amsterdam, though flights to both are extremely expensive right now. Despite my enthusiasm for visiting Morocco, I am put off by the high price of flights to Marrakesh and the likelihood that it will be extremely hot there. Unfortunately, neither Ryanair or EasyJet seems to fly to Moscow or Saint Petersburg. Otherwise, they might be interesting possibilities.
Any comments? Is there a European city that is especially interesting at the moment, or at this time of year? Since it doesn’t seem like anyone will be free to come along with me this time, I am looking for somewhere that has appeal for a single traveller who speaks English and increasingly faulty French. San Sebastián has already been enthusiastically endorsed.
