I have made a decision that is right now distracting me frm much needed study - I am going on holiday!  I had been all sad about my lack of travel in the past 2 years and years to come but then I realised that if I start saving now and plan to use my credit card a small amount I could probably not afford to travel for a month or so at the end of my degree.  Knowing I couldn't really afford to I have decided to go anyway!  I have my mind set on Germany - freezing weather and all - in November / December 2009.  I am now currently decided on my options instead of doing my anatomy study for my exam on Monday (ok not my finest academic hour but what is life with out the horrible panic of not enough study before the exam?)
First option is fly into Southern Germany (I have already been to Berlin) and do a loop of the area, maybe heading a little into Belgium / Amsterdam if I was sticking to the west.  
Second option is fly into London (I have seen some very cheap flights advertised and this has grabbed my attention!) and then take another cheap flight via Ryanair to Frankfurt (because that's where they go) and then make my way back to London either through Germany and France or head more northish to Amsterdam possibly to take another cheap flight back to London (I have not looked at this option in detail yet) .
The problem with these plans besides the money is the weather.  I really have to go at that time of year - after uni and before my PDY but I have travelled in the cold before and I am an art gallery / city girl so its not like I will be missing too much of the great outdoors.
I figure I will have to save like $3000 absolute minimum - my credit card will be getting used but this is worth it I feel.  I will have a full time job in the new year and I will go crazy if I don't have anything to look forward to in the mean time!  
Any thoughts, suggestions?

Oh I forgot my other exciting news - I am going to the PA for my clinical placement!  This is one of the 2 hospitals that deal with serious multi-trauma in Brisbane.  I should get to see some interesting things there!

Yay!! Travel is yay!!!
I haven't done tons in Germany: Berlin, Munich, Rothenberg ob der Tauber (uh, I think) and Bern. I stopped in Cologne to see the cathdral, which is gorgeous, but the city itself is also supposed to be good. Rothenberg is super touristy but super cute. Munich I actually didn't care for (aside from the cheap beer and oom-pah-pahs late into the evening) but it might be better if you don't book the hostel for the wrong night and arrive to find yourself bedless, then end up having to sleep above a naked Russian man with a knife next to his bed.
And Bern was forgettable, though there was some famous person's house there that I went to...maybe Beethoven?
Also: multi trauma! Yay! ;)
