                         the  nearest  future     

   I know travelers who love to come back many times to their favorite places.  They are  flying third time to Bali or for the fourth time to Kathmandu... I  understand them, I also have my favorite places and I want to come back to them someday, but when I am planning my future travel I am always excited by  the UNKNOWN.  My imaginations of the different places not always come true when I have possibility to see them - but to check it out I must go to the place and just see it...  So as long as my fascinating UNKNOWN exists I try to invent my travel routes in the way  which allows me to see still new countries and new places...

    If I fly somewhere far away and I am buying more or less expensive ticket I always try to take advantage of stay in the distant region and to see there as much as possible... Those  are long distance travels...        My job, limited length of holidays causes that period of travel was limited.   So I tried also to use for travel  long weekends combined with the rest of my  holidays, overtime equivalents and such things. These are short trips...

I always have in reserve few routes from each group. And the final choice depends on my finances, current availability of cheap air tickets, collected information and many, many  other factors...
