two weeks in November...any ideas?

Jump to last reply

I've been staring at a map of the world for the last two hours and figured I'd pop in here.

Departing on or around November 9th and returning November 26th or so (which will cover Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving, which are two paid days off of work, which means I won't have to take my accrued leave for those days :-)

Two adults, gay female couple, we have travelled all over Western Europe and I've travelled around Easter Europe as well, though she has not.

Budget in the $4000-$5000 range, including airfare...with air prices right now, that's going to be a bit tricky, I know. We like cities, but like beaches as well. We're into food more than anything really, and historical sights.

Pretty much anywhere in the world is an option. My other half is more of a slow traveller and isn't big on 3 days here, 2 days here, etc. So, 2-3 destinations max is what I'm thinking.

Was thinking--Turkey. I've never been...but, my other half has never been to Greece, and I think Turkey and Greece might make a nice trip, but I wouldn't want to go to Greece in November, so...might have to put that on the back burner.

Or, perhaps Istanbul and another city in the region...?

Was also thinking Berlin/Krakow/Prague, because my partner is eastern european and, as I said, has never been. But, it's also been a while since we've been on vacation together (over a year...I went to Paris with my mother last year, but that was it), and I sort of want to go somewhere that I've never been.

South America? The weather will be warm that time of year, of course the flights are more expensive, but do you think two weeks in, say, Brazil and Argentina would work in our budget?

Asia? Though any flight in excess of 15+ hours is going to freak my partner out for only a two weeks trip (though it doesn't bother me, but then, I've flown to London and have only stayed 1-2 nights, so what do I know...)

Oh, we'd be departing from NYC. Thanks, Fodorites.
