I'd be willing to look at the organisational side if the UK proves to be a popular choice. Did you already have dates in my mind for your trip Jelena?

If it's in the UK, you might get to see my mug in person. That said, university would probably interfere.

No dates yet. But thinking about it I doubt our friends would like to join the get-together. Their English skills aren't very good from what they tell me and on previous holidays they've let me and Mr J do all the talking.

So, I doubt I'd be able to make two trips to England the same spring.

Ooh, good idea!
We could all go in the footsteps of Carol Reed. And I'll arrange a barbecue party in our back yard.

Hmmm... The Netherlands or England...
I suppose I could forego the opportunity of a chance meeting with either Danny de Munk or Simon Keizer (or both ) in the Netherlands to make a pilgrimage to England.
Add in the fact that the only word I know in Nederlander (would that technically be Dutch?) is "Ja", and England sounds like a safer bet all the way around.

I'm Dutch and I have no idea who Simon Keizer is
'Dutch' in Dutch is 'Nederlands,' not 'Nederlander.'

So now we can choose between:
$. The Netherlands (cheese)
#. England (fun)
*. Sweden (in pursuit of Carol Reed)

Cast your vote!

While I would love to go to Sweden, England would be very convenient as I would be able to visit my sister as well.

Isn't that one of those many Volendam guys who all look and sound the same?

Yup, and a Nederlander is what tsa and I are

I think for me anything other than the Netherlands would be too expensive (especially when I'm already planning to go to London for a weekend to see 3 musicals), and Sweden sounds like even more expensive. But I'm not saying completely no just yet, maybe I win the lottery

Oh, I thought you were joking.
Of course I'd be able to arrange a get-together in Norrköping/Nyköping, but perhaps England is a better choice since I think more forumites would be able to attend.
I'll have to check out whether there's still a chance to make it to England twice the same season. tricky, but probably not completely impossible.

Well, you know where my vote is (ENGLAND), although timing with college would be a little tricky. Also the fact that I've been saving all my money up for the honeymoon... But if England is picked, I will definitely try.

I may even put in an appearance if it's in England (what with already being in England and stuff ), but if it's further afield it may depend on exactly how much time i've got at Easter next year.

If it's England, I'm totally in London and able to get places. Unless I'm in a lecture...
