Open mike

Alright. There aren't many of you out there, but I think it's clear you're a well-traveled bunch, so I need your advice.

Let's say, hypothetically, that you were planning a trip in, oh, just for the sake of argument, June. Suppose you were going to share this trip with two other adults, and let's just say you had a total budget of $7000. You have no restrictions on time, place or duration.

Where would you go?

I'd go in early June for the lower airfare (but I live in the northern hemisphere and that's before most schools get out, so I don't know if this would be the same for you). I'd probably go to Canada. It's not that exotic, but I've never been. I'd fly into Vancouver and then drive across.
Or else China. But the airfare would be pricey.

If you come to Europe, let me know if you are anywhere near me in Northern Italy. I would love to meet you!

Or maybe Turkey.
or South Africa.
But Thailand and Indonesia most would be appealing to me.

Thailand would be nice but is a little unstable right now. A tour of South America, or Canada to include Iceland and Greenland would be nice but you guys don't like the cold. I would also go any where there is a beach.... Hey go to Japan stop in Guam for a couple of days then on to Japan.. Yes I vote for Japan.

June's the perfect time for a safari in South Africa - it's winter so you see the animals better, but not freezing cold.

The puzzle is coming along nicely.

Cruise to Alaska w/extra 2 week stopover in a cabin to do the sights. That or playing in the mountains in Switzerland/Austria.

Europe! Something different for the whole family. How about a mix of city & history & culture, then old-time charm & nature in the mountains in a little cabin (say in Austria or Switzerland). Cities could include: Munich (Germany), then Salzburg & Vienna (Austria) - by car; Florence & Pisa & Countryside Tuscany (Italy). I wouldn't drive myself crazy about visiting too many big cities though. And go early, May/June would be best (otherwise it'll be crowded + expensive).
Have fun!!!!!!!!!

Hehe, I am already in Europe, so I'd say South America. I dream of boating on the Amazon. Or I'd go to some south Pacific Island, or Morocco with an expedition into the desert. But if you come to this part of europe, like Jennifer said, let me know!

I second the Turkey suggestion. It is like nowhere else.

I'd also love to go to Iceland and Poland.

If you've never been, Prague is amazing, and so close to Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest . . .

I also loved Bulgaria (of course) and Ukraine, although they're not very tourist-friendly (most signs in Cyrillic, and leftover Communist unhelpfulness).

Can't wait to hear more about what you decide!

Not Afraid?
Go to Egypt.
I've been there once, and I would go back in a heartbeat.
See the Sphinx...go to the pyramids...

Or...Fiji...or Tahiti...
Those are two places I've never been & always wanted to go.

I've also always wanted to go to Japan.

Oh---or come to Dallas!
(just kidding....)

Thailand! Yes, the airfare will be pricey but once you're there, food, transportation, and a roof over your head isn't much.

Or maybe Cambodia or Vietnam.

J February 23, 2007 10:41 PM  

I've been thinking on this, and the only advice I have is that I wouldn't suggest West Texas.

Oh. My. Goodness. What a miserable June you'd have.

That's pretty pitiful, but it's the best I can do, and I wanted to participate.

Train trip across Canada is a huge thing to the English. I live in Canada and in a town that the train stops in and in the summer it is very busy. My sister just did a train tour and really enjoyed it.

A really good trip could be planned and Canada is beautiful!!!
