2010: 25th Anniversary and 60th Birthday Trip: where to go?

Jump to last reply

Well, my title says it all. Next year, we will have been together for 25 years, and it will be my 60th birthday. DH feels that we should go anywhere I want to go for a celebration trip.

I have a few ideas. A couple of trips I half planned but we didn't take, for various reasons:

Umbria (I've only seen a portion)
Provence (only been to the Cote d'Azur area)
Dordogne (never been)

Places that I still have on my to-do list

Banff/Jasper/Glacier
Yosemite

Any thoughts? I had originally had a favorite, Big Sur, on the list, but can't quite bring myself to pay Ventana prices, and it seems that Big Sur Lodge, where we stayed in the past, is in disrepair. Anyway, as much as I adore Big Sur, it doesn't really seem like a big trip.

I would go to Australia and NZ, but we don't get enough vacation next year.

You know, I could talk about this forever. I would also consider a wildly romantic spot in England. I've always wanted to stay in a romantic National Trust property. Thatch, fireplace,...

On the other hand, a swimming pool is one of my favorite things in the world.
