50th birthday and 25th wedding anniversary - Where to go??

Jump to last reply

In March of 2014 I'll turn 50 and in December I'll celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary. My husband and I have enough miles to get to wherever we want to go. I've been to Western Europe a dozen times, so I'd like to go somewhere else. We'll probably go in March for my birthday since that's when I have spring break. Right now our top three ideas are Buenos Aires, Puerto Rico and a driving tour of Portugal (and northern or southern Spain.) We're always on the lookout for a good deal! (I'm a teacher so most of the travel I've done has been through work; we're not rich.) We live in North Carolina and I'm fluent in Spanish and can get by in other Romance languages. I guess I'm looking for somewhere really awesome that's not the typical suggestion (I've been to London, Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Dublin, Prague, Budapest, Berlin, etc.) I've also been to China and am not really interested in returning to Asia at this time. So who can recommend a fantastically awesome unusual place?

P.S. We like food & wine, history, museums, culture. We're not super outdoorsy. We usually don't sit around on beaches with umbrella drinks. Neither of us is interested in cruises. Thanks in advance for the suggestions!!
