[QUOTE] I've got a lot of time between now and February to do some travelling! Part of me wants to go to Europe, because I have never been there before, but I wonder if it being winter means that it won't be such a good deal what with the smaller number of daylight hours and the general darker and wetter weather. Some friends of mine are planning on being in Tokyo in January, and southeast Asia is fine in the winter. I have been in parts of Thailand before, and nobi's in northern Thailand, which would be fun for a visit. I certainly wouldn't mind visiting Hong Kong and Singapore and eating crazy amounts of food there. I'm interested in both cultural and natural things (I'm kind of tempted to go to the Scandinavian nations in spite of the freezing cold just to see winter there and the aurora!), and I've been recommended to visit Italy when it comes to Europe, and the extreme amount of cool architecture/history/food there is honestly pretty compelling. What does mmcafe folks with knowledge of Europe think of winter travel there? How about southeast asia? [/QUOTE] In college I did a study abroad program for a semester in France then ended it backpacking through Western Europe (Paris, Rome, Florence, Bavaria) in the winter. I had a fantastic time. It gets COLD AS HELL though. Especially in Germany. I remember as our train was approaching Munchen, the cold just seeped through everything. I ended up in a giant human hamster pile with my friends cos our clothes weren't enough to keep us warm. I had to buy a new set of clothes just for Germany (Florence was surprisingly chilly too). I've never appreciated a warm pair of gloves more in my life. You're pretty tall though, so I think you can pack light cos you won't have a hard time finding stuff that fits you in Europe. I've only experienced Europe outside of France in the winter and I loved it. In fact the snow made everything feel even more magical. That said, COME VISIT ME IN CHIANG MAI. WE WILL EAT LIKE KINGS. I can recommend some good day trips too. And if you're curious I can introduce you to all the local game devs.
