Leaving 18 April for 3 weeks in Europe. Spending a week touring the Rhine and Mosel River valleys followed by a week in Italy(staying in Vicenza), followed by a week in Bavaria. Will be touring by car with my wife and another couple. Focus will be on history and local culture.

Every year, including this one, my X3 takes me to Steamboat Springs CO for three months of skiing from mid Jan to Mid April.

Never had a problem in snow, even the 27" we got in 24 hours last month. :D

I won't be driving my new baby for this one, but right now I'm already booking a vacation home rental in Normandy for the Christmas Holidays. It'll be my 60th birthday and I want to go somewhere we've never been to before. I've been to Paris and NIce and wasn't a fan of wither, but friends keep telling me that the people outside the big cities are wonderful. We shall see. Something tells me it is gonna be major league cold in December.

June 26 I am chaperoning my wife's students on a jaunt from Barcelona to Florence to Athens then on a 5 day cruise through the Cyclades. Did it two years ago and greatly enjoyed it despite the occassional high school drama scenes. I'm hoping to pick up some BMW memorabilia not found in the US.

Three days after returning from that adventure, we take another group on our first trip to China. Since it's only for ten days and with a group this will only give us a taste of what that huge nation offers. I'm wondering how uncomfortable it's gonna be with the heat and unfamiliar food. I'll be loading up on Pepto and Maalox.

And a week after that I have the opportunity to take a short trip to the Galapagos. I may beg out on that one since I'm not a big nature freak. I can probably see and learn more watching TV specials.

In other words, I won't be doing much topless driving in our 2012 128i convert this Summer.

We saw that tour happening but didn't get on it. Spent two days in Reykjavik walking around. Three days on excursions around the island.

Icelandair sort of s**t the bed; we had a full day delay on the way out and they lost my bag on the way back. But Iceland itself was wonderful.

Just finishing up the final touches for my 60th birthday present - after close to 100 trips across the Pond (mostly to my beloved Deutschland), I'm finally gonna get to see the beaches of Normandy, Mt St Michel, Bayeux and the part of France where the French are supposedly actually friendly. I'm not a seafood lover myself, so this could be rather interesting spending two weeks along the coastlines.

Wifey and I used a business trip of mine to Seattle as an excuse to explore the Willamette Wine region and Portland over Memorial Day. It was my first time in Portland.

Amazing town (Portland). Hit ten wineries in two days. Fantastic food. Super cool people in excellent bars. Good times.

Highlight of the trip was two fold -
1. Breakfast at Pine Street Biscuits in Portland. Oh my, it was amazing.
http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=379154&stc=1&d=1369805888
2. Soter Vineyards - Absolutely the best vineyard we went to in two days of wine tasting. First time I've ever joined a wine club out of probably 50 vineyards I've been too. http://www.sotervineyards.com

For those interested, we stayed at The Nines in downtown Portland. Great hotel. Excellent service.

If you're only spending a day Machu Pichu would be the choice, but I think Buenos Aires would have far more to see and do. Never been there but everyone who has raves about it as being very European with great restaurants (think beef) and fascinating sightseeing. I used to work with the State Department arranging diplomats' movements to post and Buenos Aires was a highly coveted assignment. I'm a devotee of all things European and go there whenever possible, but the one and only place in SA that I feel I need to see is Booey.
