To go or not to go?

Jump to last reply

My last day at my current job is 4/22 and I'll start my next job on 5/2, giving me a week off. I need to clean my house, take down the Christmas tree, relax, etc.

I keep looking at that week and thinking "I won't be able to travel again until December. I could fit a city visit into a week..." However, no city really catches my eye. I love London, but I am NOT visiting London the week of the royal wedding. I haven't booked anything yet because nothing has really caught my attention but it's about time to either decide to go or decide to stay.


What would be good for a short 4 night visit? I want history and architecture, but no beach. I don't have a set budget exactly but cheap is good (I want safe, clean lodging with an ensuite bathroom, nothing fancy).

Athens? Barcelona? Paris? Nowhere in the US really sounds like that much fun. I'm not big on shopping. I'm solo, but don't do the party/bar scene that many solo travelers my age do. The beach and I do not play well together and the thought of a resort practically makes me break out in hives. I've been to Italy recently and while I loved both Rome and Florence, I don't want to go back just yet. I loved Beijing but the flights to Asia are a bit too long for such a short visit.

Any ideas? Please and thank you! :)
