    I know my chances are slim, but I will be traveling to Amsterdam, Delhi, Agra, Kathmandu in mid-December. If there are any RJers in those cities or traveling to them at that time, let me know. I wouldn't mind making new friends, and it is always better to travel with company- even better if you get a local to show you around.

    planning on europe and then japan between December and Feb. i find it hard to find anyone that doesnt have work obligations. i offered to pay for friends to come with me to Mexico after xmas.. and even then its hard getting everyone together. it sucks travelling alone, but good luck with that. never been to amsterdam but thats one place i wanna go, been to Delhi.. language barrier isn't as big of a deal as i thought it would've been.

    I was actually traveling in Amsterdam alone a few years back around the holidays. I met some of the coolest people I have ever met. You'll find some great people too I'm sure.

    I've been to all those places so if you need some tips let me know. I prefer to travel alone. Complete freedom.

    I've been to two of the three before (Delhi and Kathmandu), Agra will be easy enough, and I only have six hours between flights in Amsterdam, and as a Jew there is only one place I am likely to go: The Anne Frank House.

    Still, I wouldn't mind meeting up with a RJer there or anywhere.

    as a jew, you can also check out the Synagogue in amsterdam. towards the east of the city center.

    or if you don't feel like leaving the airport, i think the Rijksmuseum is still closed for renovations, and if it is, then they have a temporary exhibit at the airport.

    I almost always travel alone. For one reason or another, friends can't travel with me. So I've gotten used to the complete freedom over my itinerery. I also find it easier to meet people when I'm solo.

    Still, it would be nice to have a friend with me sometimes, if he was easy going, a free spirit and curious and not clingy....

    ehh.. I've been to Kathmandu before. It's not as great as everyone says (I keep going back because of work). Amsterdam, and Delhi are my layovers, and I am choosing to reach out to see the Taj in Agra. Last time through, I gave myself enough time to get around Delhi, next time through I will wheel around to Jaipur. India is much more worth your time, even if the Nepali people are nicer.
