    personally, i think its the price issue.. the money spend to go there and play there can easily get u a brand new d70s

    Been to greek islands last year. Really beautiful country. Generally July and August is the peak season and most expensive to go. Late May or Early Sept and you can bargain for lower price for accommodation.

    i think it is more of a timing issue for me. when i went to paris & milan last july, there were loads of tourists from around the world. i dun mind traveling with a stranger, just that i am afraid that we may not have a good time because of all the crowds.

    ok, i re-phase my statement: i am afraid we may have a difficult time in getting good & cheap accommodations, getting air/train/bus tickets, getting admissions into museums, etc, etc. good enough?

    i assume that you are interested? but have some reservations? I have friends that have been to these countries recently with recommendations to good hostels there... but i think i have to work out an itinery for you guys so that you can better decide...

    NMSS... the estimated cost like i told witness is about 3k SGD exc air tic to europe... that's for 2weeks...

    think the budget of 3K can include air tickets. fly to istanbul instead, cos there are alot of direct or transit flights to istanbul or middle east. last yr I spend abt S$1k in Greece alone for 10 days, whereas the rest of the middle east countries i spend ard S$2k for 6.5 weeks greece is no longer as cheap as it was when they are using greek drachma.

    you can travel by train or bus between two countries, cheaper and can see more places.

    Keep up your search ... you will eventually find someone to go with you ...

    But also do your homework to check the best time to go there ... If this is mainly a photography trip, then you may want to choose the season that would give you the best and longest daylight ... and probably not going during the peak of holiday season is a good idea ... Otherwise you would have people in all your shots or have to wait for a long time to take your shots ...

    Maybe an indiaction of how long the trip is going to be would help also ... a lot of us do not have the luxury of taking long leave from work ... I am quite keen to go actually, but will really depend on work commitment and the cost ... If you do not mind send me some of you plans to look thru and i will see how i can fit in .... Thanks

    Good Luck ...
