Hey! I'm considering taking a trip this summer...not sure yet. Here's a few ideas that I'm toying around with right now. I am flexible on time, having several weeks if necessary. Barcelona: I am interested in seeing, among other things, some fascinating architecture, Cuitat Vella, Cassa de lax punxes, Fundacio Joan Miro, Las Ramblas, Gothic Quarter, etc. - How long would you recommend staying in Barcelona to soak it in without rushing? - What are some areas near Barcelona that you would recommend? - What do you feel is a "must see" in or around Barcelona that most people miss? Iceland / Reykavik: Where are the best, weirdest, most fantastic landscapes in Iceland? And for that matter, what do you recommend in Reykjavik? A trip to Iceland is, admittedly, probably a long shot for me because of the sheer cost of it. Even given their economic collapse, it's not exactly cheap. And if you do a search around the internet just for flights, just that is brutally expensive. Flights to Reykjavik from LAX are expensive, although there are some under US$1700. And so far, my frequent flier miles don't seem to be helping...United doesn't seem to have any flights there. I admittedly don't know very much about Iceland. It's always been a mystery to me...part of its allure. Quito, Ecuador: I love Ecuador. I've been there already, and have some good ideas on where to go. This is much cheaper, and is my fallback. Nowhere: I may just stay put and record a bunch of music and try and organize/clean up my studio, which is a disaster zone.
