Pimp my Vacations!

Amsterdam Bulgaria
Orlando New York

I have four trips planned for this year:

  • Amsterdam, Netherlands (fingers crossed, submitted the paper last week)
  • Sofia, Bulgaria with a quick jaunt down to Greece with The Beau
  • Orlando, Florida (The Beau is going there and I am tagging along because hey, it’s effin’ Florida!)
  • New York, New York (I have never been and I have finally decided to go.)

Yes, I know I’m racking up the miles this year, but I haven’t been traveling for a while. The Bulgarian and Dutch conferences are also happening within days of each other, so I will only actually need one gas guzzling cross-Atlantic plane ride to cover both (although I will also need a little cross-continental plane to take me from Sofia to Amsterdam). I am really looking forward to these trips! So here are some questions to all you friendly crafters out there:

  • What are some good places to go in any of the above locations? I’m curious about everything: hotels, restaurants, museums, fun parties, places to see cute animals, glamorous shopping, parks, I will even visit a tourist trap if it is worth seeing. And I am not opposed to hurling my body into dangerous and death-defying situations, just so long as there is a rope attached to me so I can be snatched back in the nick of time. I want adventure!
  • Disneyworld: pro or con?
  • Should I go to the Kennedy Space Center again?
  • Is there anything to do in Bulgaria that doesn’t involve communism?
  • Notable yarn stores? Is there a yarn equivalent of Legoland?

  1. I’m in NYC. I think it depends on the length of time you are here, and how interested you are in the touristy.

    For yarn shops, I like Knitty City and The Point, although there’s lots of little ones (no Legoland).

    For sights, the American Museum of Natural History is great, and you can see the best vantage of the Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island Ferry (which is free). Just take a round trip from the bottom of the city to SI and back again.

    If you want more tips, email me.

  2. Cool!
    Amsterdam: Definitely go to the Anne Frank House, you must.
    The VanGogh museum is very nice, but if you have only one museum in you.. go to the Rijksmuseum
    Just Amsterdam? The Kroller Muller sculpture garden/museum is excellent (ok.. can you tell I went there on an art tour?)
    Our Lord in The Attic is also an interesting museum. It is on the edge of the Red Light district.. so you can get a taste of that while going there.. it’s a secret church hidden inside a bunch of merchant homes.. quite beautiful

    Cape Canaveral.. yes do go it has changed alot and improved alot!!
