With so many choices, where would you go?

Jump to last reply

DH and I want to go somewhere new to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and the launching of our first child off to college. We've never had a chance to really celebrate our anniversary, as we share it with our DD. We're going for only about a week and are fortunate to have enough airline miles to go to any of the places on our short list.

We've been many places, but have missed these:

Lisbon, Portugal
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Istanbul, Turkey

We love great history, culture and food. I speak Spanish fluently and enough French to be passable in conversation. DH has some pretty good German skills. We enjoy renting a car and driving, but like trains too.

We've been to Paris many times and first considered returning there. We also loved Gstaad, so our taste kind of runs from the largest of cities to smallest of towns.

We enjoy a little luxury in a unique boutique hotel and a wonderful dinner with great wine. We like to meander. DH likes no more than two museums and two cathedrals while on a trip. No limit on castles. :)

So, where would you go? Why?
