Things We Should Probably Do: Vacations

Man it’s fun to plan for trips and you might as well keep crossing off the bucket list.  At this point in my life I’d prefer going on a trip with a few friends.  It would be better if it weren’t the default Vegas selection too.  I’m planning on making one this year if anyone is down. 

In no particular order,

Pamplona, Spain

Running of the Bulls July 6-14

No alcohol is allowed to run with the bulls.  The San Fermin festival had over 1 million people last year.  Chance of Death is greatly exaggerated, but people speaking Spainish could be problematic. Trip can include visits to Madrid or Barcelona


Munich, Germany
16-18 day festival held each year irom late September to the first weekend in October. It is one of the most famous events in Germany and the world's largest fair, with more than 5 million people attending every year.

Drawbacks would be German speaking people and presumably bad food.  Also being drunk is something that can be accomplished stateside.

Liverpool/London, England

So I want to watch some English soccer matches, and you want to see Europe.  I’ll do whatever you want to do there if we see 3 matches.  Times are somewhat flexible.


Preferably we bounce around the country.  The trip would be probably be longer than the others due to travel time.  Costs are high but it would be several trips in one.  Outback one day, Sydney the next, take in some Rugby. Times are flexible.

Stateside for the less Adventurous

First of all it’s a given that I will be at college football games this year so that is not included here.

Travel to see Phillies play a series on the road

This is inexpensive and can be done in any more city in which I haven’t been too.  Unless it’s Chicago and its Wrigley. You can plan other events besides drinking in here as well.

Camping/Ice Fishing/Skiing

All of these are weekend trips that would be relatively inexpensive.  I’m not sure how fun they would actually be but I have never done the first two.

If you have any other ideas, fire away in the comments.

  1. those international trips suck. Phils trip is good. Disney World should be added.
