All I Ever Wanted

Vacation, Got to Get Away!

Yah, it’s about that time where I’m ready to singe off my eyelashes one by one, so before that happens, I’d like to take some time off to rejuvenate.

But, I have NO IDEA where to go or what to do.

So, dear readers, it’s now your turn to recommend something.

I am thinking that I’d like to get away for about a week, and my absolute upper limit total budget is $2000 Canadian Dollars including flight, hotel, food, drink, more drinking, shopping, and another drink (or two).

Sun and sand would be nice, but are not necessary. To give you some idea, some places I’ve been looking at include Bali, Greece, NYC, Cuba & Montreal. I like the opportunity to be active, but I’m ruling out Ski and/or Golf vacations. Just not what I want right now.

Since I don’t a) know anyone who can afford the time and/or money to go with me that I’d want to travel with, or b) play well with others I’m planning on travelling alone. I do like the idea of a Contiki vacation, because they won’t hose me with the single room-supplement (running on the assumption that I can hate my designated roommate and forget they exist after a week). So unless you’re volunteering to be my travel companion, please try to keep the single traveler in mind when suggesting plans.

Ok, go to it! Where should I run off to?

    i can guarantee you no sand in montreal… and while there’s sun it doesn’t do much for the -50 degree windchill… on the bright side you might have me to guide you around… and you’d get to meet your namesake… oh, what a world

    but seriously, montreal in the winter , not so much a vacation for a westie… unless you have a death wish

    For 2 grand, I’d recommend staying in and around North America. Cuba is awesome, certainly…hmmm, I think I’ll quit while I’m ahead here. As a non-drinking, non-shopping, non-beach-going traveller, I’m really ill-equipped to advise you.

    South America or Europe would be my pick but one month would never be long enough let alone one week. If you want a quick break – check out Cuba or Dominican Republic (Punta Cana)Best deals for Canadians!, or Costa Rica… I have friends on the Pacific side there that can advise on deals. Also depends when or how soon you want to travel? -prices are high because of x-mas…

    Hiya am delurking for a bit !!
    Just a couple of things on europe…
    Greece can be very cold in the winter…they have snow etc so not much use for sun !
    Spain this time of year tends to fill up with the british elderly trying to escape the winter here…so unless shuffle board is your idea of fun would steer clear of that and ibiza / ayia nappa has pretty much shut down for the winter !
    Have you ever thought of morroco or turkey ?
