help! where to go in november??

Jump to last reply

I originally posted this in the Europe forum but I don't want to limit suggestions to just Europe.
I plan a "girl trip" every Oct/Nov as the hubbies are on their yearly golf trip to Myrtle Beach. Every year, the number of women going varies (from 8 to 2), and this year it looks like it may just be 2 of us (at most 4 but doubtful).
We have been to New Orleans, San Diego/Temecula, Scottsdale and surrounding area, Napa/Sonoma wine trip, Ireland twice (drove everywhere), Italy (florence, rome, sienna), Paris/Munich, Key West, Barbados....I have also been to parts of Spain/portugal/gibraltar/morocco, several islands in the caribbean, venice, vancouver, costa rica 5 times, ecuador/galapagos, vienna, and several areas in the US.
We will be leaving the last weekend in Oct thru first week of Nov. which is somewhat difficult due to weather in certain areas. We've always had great luck with the weather in Europe (ok, except for parts of the Ireland trip....expected) and we are not adverse to cooler temps as our summer was brutal. We can swing 10 days maximum. Here is the dilemma - I like to be fairly active on vacations, my friend does not. She has no problem walking as long as there is something to interest her (sites, shopping, etc). She is open, however, to travel just about anywhere. I have no problem repeating an area we have been to (she missed the paris/munich trip).
I've tossed around the idea of Argentina (maybe BA and then wine country), Guatemala (although I think la nina is giving central america a very rainy season), or somewhere in Europe as the Euro is still a bit better than usual. As far as Europe, had even considered a last minute river cruise if i could find one since she likes to cruise? If i did Paris again, not sure what to add on (Loire ?, amsterdam?, london?). I did love munich/garmisch area...saw very little of spain, would like to see more of eastern europe but too cold?? croatia? and of course who doesn't love italy! oh...and did consider Oaxaca because would be there for Day of the Dead but probably no availability and a little nervous about that area politically?
If anyone normally travels during this time of year, I am open to all suggestions - your advice and helping me narrow this down would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
Thank you!
