Although I'm keeping a lot of my schedule open for serendipity, I did need to put some kind of frame around this trip and book flights and adventures that I don't want to miss.  Here is my current general outline:

May 6 - June 6:  Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.  Just being a Carioca.

June 6 - June 15:  Chicago, USA. Quit my job. Get older. Line things up for my Euro-trip.

June 16 - July 19:  Zagrab, Croatia to Athens, Greece.  Traveling with the little sis Karen!!!  Planning to see lots of Croatia and lots of Greece, and maybe some cool places in between!

July 19 - August 5:  Turkey?? and more??  Still have this portion open

August 5 - 9:  Berlin, Germany.  Reunion of the Belize crew with Doro, Gina, and George!!

August 9 - 15:  Budapest, Hungary.  Sziget Music Festival!  See the lineup here: . Definitely meeting up with Aaron and Missi for a few of these days.

August 16 - 21:  Northwest Hungary.  Canoe trip down the Danube with fellow Couchsurfers:

August 21 - 24:  Back to Berlin?? 

August 24 - 27 (?):  Chicago, USA.  Pack up for Burning Man!August 27 - 29:  Reno, NV.  Prep for Burning Man, and put some money on 13 Black.August 29 - Sept 5:  Burning Man Festival 2011!!!  Finally gonna make a

Sept 5 - mid September-ish:  Chicago, USA.  Hug the nieces and nephews.  Sleep.

mid-Sept - mid-Oct(??):  More of Europe.  Fly into Frankfurt, then head over to
Prague and some other places in the area.  Also probably hit Oktoberfest
in Munich! 

mid-Oct(??) - mid-Nov or mid-Dec(????):  India and maybe SE Asia.  Not sure yet
whether I'm going to try to get back home for Thanksgiving.  If I do,
then I'll probably spend between Thanksgiving and Christmas in Hawaii. 
If I don't, then I'll probably head from India over to the Thailand,
Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam region.

Late December:  Chicago, USA.  I'll be home for Christmas.  You can count on me.

December 29 - March, April, May 2012(????):  South America.  Fly into Buenos
Aires.  Probably make my way up the coast and hit Carnaval in Rio (Feb.
17 - 21).  Want to see Columbia and Bolivia at some point.  A lot of
this is still up in the air and will be dependent on my bank account, mood, and of course serendipity.

I also have a couple long shots that I'm considering:

Rock in Rio 2011 (late Sept. - early Oct. 2011) - Would need to find tickets, and it's a bit out of the way

Trans-Siberian Railroad (Fall 2011) - Would be a very cool way to get from Europe into Asia, but I don't think I'll have time to put logistics and visas together

South Side Irish Parade, Chicago, USA (March 2012) - Will it return???  Not counting on it...

As this schedule develops, I'll continue to update this post.
