Ideas for 2008

Ok me and a mate where basically going to do a bit of traveling this year but the way things turned out it didn't quite happen. Anyway we have decided that for summer 08 we are going to organize a couple of good holidays. We have both got a decent amount of money saved up about £2000, and we are looking for something decent. We don't want to go on lads holidays to ibiza etc because we have both done that stuff before.

Anyone have any suggestions to any events, festivals or cool places we could go. We both wanted to go to America but as nether of us have held a full uk driver's licence for longer than 3 years I don't think this would be possible.

Cheers

    Benicassim is a great festival in Spain. Many a great band have played there in the past including Arctic Monkeys.http://www.carling.com/music/festival/information/benicassim-spain/

    You could get an inter rail ticket from about £350 and travel all around Europe/North Africa, sleeping on the trains or in cheap hostels and visit amazing places like Prague, Krakow, Amsterdam, Morrocco, Paris, Berlin, Ljubljana and many more. http://www.interrailnet.com/interrail_global_pass

    Also, Thailand is also a popular choice with travellers these days. http://www.lonelyplanet.com/worldguide/destinations/asia/thailand/

    I would say Thailand or Australia, you could easyily spend a couple of months traveling around Oz.

    I was going to say Ibiza, Kavos, Faleraki, Ayia Napa or somewhere like that, but as you've already done that sort of holiday before...

    Thailand (that's where I'm off to!) and South East Asia in general or you could do Europe (from places in Western Europe like Amsterdam, Barcalona, Germany, Austria to Eastern Europe like the former Yugoslavian countries, Poland and even Russia).
    Another place I'd love to visit is Egypt.

    Inter-rail. I did it this year and loved it. Stay in cheap hostels, get the right inter-rail card (there are quite a few now), plan a fairly good route, and you can see a hell of a lot of Europe.

    I'm planning to inter-rail round Italy and do a mammoth trek of Canada next year.
