Shade will be absent for a while (in Public Record)
July 27 2010 4:05 PM EDT
To be precise: from Friday July 30th until Friday August 12th.
I will then be on a holiday, together with 2 friends I will be visiting Prague (4 days), Bratislava (3 days) and Budapest (5 days).
I will have my new Canon EOS 50D with me with several fine objectives (among which 24-105 and 50mm 1.8 prime) so I'll have the time of my life :)
Awesome bro be sure to make a thread with lots of pics and have tons of fun! :-)

::jealous:: I wanted to go visit Budapest but never went. And I'd tell you the name of a great hostel in Prague, but I can't seem to recall it...
I guess that's what LonelyPlanet is for.

Well, I have packed my suitcase and weighed it.
I now have around 1/3rd in space left and it's weight now is about 17 kilo's (and we're allowed to bring 30 kilo's with us).
For me this means I can take along my tripod, not sure if I'll be using it but better to bring it and not use it, than not bring it and wishing I did.
You take a lot of vacations :P
"better to bring it and not use it, than not bring it and wish I had" [ed]
This is the rule I use when packing to go anywhere! It is perfectly sensible and some people should stop griping about my 125 lbs. of luggage.
This is the season for Holiday in Europe I've heard, which makes sense! :)

You never work, you let others do your work ;)
I survived most of Western Europe with just a medium hiking backpack. Then again, I'm rather low maintenance.
Anyhow, Prague and Budapest are great cities to visit. One could spend a month in Prague and not see everything. The cheap drinking is great, too. Oh, and the German consulate guards in Prague don't like it when random people walk into their backyard by accident, so try to avoid that.

Plus, there are lots of things sold in Prague's bars that you wouldn't expect bartenders to have...

Hehehe, there's now 20 kilo's in my suitcase, plenty of weight and room left to bring a few fine bottles of hungarian wine back :)
You're taking cocaine????!?!?!

How else do you expect him to fund his constant vacations? Don't judge!

Why am I not surprised that you know this IA? hehe
Enjoy your trip Shade, take plenty of pictures(or have a friend do it if your are being handcuffed at the time)!
I miss the old buildings of Europe... the downside I suppose of living in a city which was only started 170yrs ago.
Bah... I am so jealous!
