April, outside U.S., @ 11 days, where?

Jump to last reply

I'm itching to get out of the country (U.S.) and finally we'll have both the time and money together, to do so! Might be traveling with friends (which would need its own thread). So we'd be two couples in our early fifties and sixties, who enjoy food, music, farm markets and crafts, architecture, history, art, but more than anything just walking around and making discoveries. Enjoy beautiful scenery too, doesn't have to all be urban. Embarrassed to say that amongst four of us, only one other language, Spanish, and a pre-101 level Italian. But I could learn a traveler's level of another language, between now and April!

The others are interested in Barcelona but I've already been there and while I loved it, there are SO many places I've yet to go that I'm reluctant to go back (tho' I might, and if I do, what would you pair it with?)

Other places I've already been are Rome, London, west coast of Mexico (small town of Melaque), and many parts of Canada.

Starting out from Philadelphia. The 11 days don't count travel days. My husband and I (not so much the other couple) are rather slow travelers...when we hear about all the places other people went on their trips, we know we'd not do half the amount, as it would feel tiring rather than enjoyable to us. We're in fine shape and love to explore, but we also love to savor. Plus, time just being together...it IS vacation!

Beginning thoughts have been about Paris (in which case, stay there whole time?), about Scandinavian countries, Portugal, Guatemala...all very different options, obviously. So would love to hear your recommendations....please share your passion for places you love! I'm a little overwhelmed by so many choices.
