wow, that sounds great.

When are you going to be in europe?  If you come all the way up to Norway let me know :)

I'll probably be broke by then it will be the last stop on the trip before coming back to the US and that area of Europe is pretty expensive from what I hear.  Who knows maybe the pictures I take along the way will allow it, thanks for the invite though I'd love to go there one day.

yes it is very expensive, but you could do it a bit cheaper by only going to Oslo, staying for just a day, and taking a night train back to sweden :)

A beer costs $8
A movie costs $12
gas costs $1.4 /litre
A cappucino at a regular cafe costs $3.9
You can have a nice dinner for two at a quite cheap indian restaurant for $60
A hot dog with all the fixings $6.00
A kebab $5.00

I've got to sell a lot of pictures to make that trip, a few beers could blow my whole budget.

Update, in case anyone cares.  Back in the USA for a couple weeks, just got my visas and next week I'm on my way to Canada, China, India, and then to Europe hopefully for 8 months or so.  South America was amazing, go to Colombia!  Had a few adventures including a couple robberies, my girlfriend got bitten by a monkey, and we hiked to Machu Picchu.  I didn't get a chance to meet any fellow microstockers on the way, just missed Holgs in Colombia but hopefully someone will be around in Asia while I'm there.  So if you live there or are going to be there in the next few months please contact me and we will see about doing a shoot or getting a beer along the way.

good luck on your travels -  we tend to take shorter trips of 4-6 wks

last summer we spent a month in Peru - travel's easy, the bus system is very good & comfortable on the long hauls.

http://cascoly.com/trav/south/peru.asp

time your cusco stay to visit the Pisac market. rather than a sacred valley  tour you can also take a taxi to the end of the valley at Puca Pucare.  then you have your own pace to walk down the 8 km to Cusoc, visiting the various sites, ending at Sacsayhuaman

====
India's my favorite place - we spent 6 wks there a few years ago and are going back for 6 wks in Nov without covering much of what we did before. 

 absolute highlights were our trip to palitana in gujarat http://cascoly.com/trav/india/palitana.asp  and the Pushkar camel fair in Rajasthan http://cascoly.com/trav/india/pushkar.asp

 this time we're spending a week visiting hill tribe markets in Orissa

i'd be happy to answer any specific questions.

we have good friends who are travel guides in turkey and in india, if you need any specific arrangements while in those countries or as a contact while in the country.

We spent almost three weeks in the cusco/machu picchu area, partly because I was sick for about 6 days but it was a lot of fun.  I'm guessing I will arrive in india in december in bangalore maybe you'll be around then?   Thanks for the info.

This is one thing almost everybody wants to do, but very few have the guts to do it.
wish you the best

If you pass by Frankfurt (and you will, believe me ;)), just send me an email. I can also host you if you need it.

I am going to try to make it to Berlin, everyone has such great things to say about that city but if I have money left I'd love to see more of the country.  I went to munich a couple years ago and really enjoyed the city.

No Indonesia in your list?, it's country with 17,000 islands.

Thats very tempting but I just don't have time to see everything now, maybe I'll do another just south east asia trip in a year or two if the offer is still open.

Well family might be a little more important, good luck with that!
