Hey everybody,

The basic rundown of my situation is this:
My girlfriend is doing her student teaching in Berlin. Back in December, before she left, I bought a ticket to fly over and see her. I asked if she wanted me to visit, and she said yes.

Something has changed. She told me she doesn't have feelings for me anymore, doesn't want to be in a relationship. I'm giving her space right now.

But I have this ticket to Berlin. If I cancel it I'm out $200 for cancellation fees. I still get most of the money back, but for me $200 is a fair amount of money. It's my opinion that she should be the one giving me $200 because she said she wanted me to come over there otherwise I wouldn't have bought the ticket, and her view on that is "I didn't ask you to come". But I did ask her if she wanted me to.

Spoon, ironically one of my favorite bands, is doing a European tour for the week that I'm over. Here are the dates I need people's help with! Places to stay! People to hang out with! I'll end up in Berlin on the 12th, and screw it if she doesn't want to be with me, I'm coming over anyway and I just won't go to see her.

FEB 14 - Glasgow, UK
FEB 15 - Manchester, UK
FEB 16 - London, UK

So, who has floor, couch or bed space? tongue.gif From there I figure I'll be heading back to Berlin for the 20th as they play there and I fly out on the 22nd.

I really would appreciate if maybe I could work something out with you lot. There are some of you I didn't get the opportunity to see (or saw for a shorter period of time than I would have liked) when I was over in '08.

This is, as of now, unofficial.

Fly into Berlin on the 12th
Head to Munich on the 13th to see Mastodon
Flight to Manchester on the 14th
Spoon on the 15th in Manchester
Manchester to London or somewhere else in the UK for hang out time and place to stay ??? Date
Flight back to Berlin on the 20th
Spoon that night
See the ex for a day or so and we can talk about this whole thing face to face
Fly back to the states on the 22nd

I may cut out Munich to reduce travel costs and whatnot, but Spoon in Manchester (15th) and Spoon in Berlin (20th) will be solid dates to work around. Everything else will be up in the air until I do the number crunching more. If anybody can house me for a couple of days here or there that'd be great because that was never in the original cost equation, obviously enough.
