For teenagers, Barcelona or Dublin.

My girls, then aged 15 and 13, adored Barcelona - hip, lively, Gaudi, Picasso, Miro, the Olympic Stadium, the football - try to get into a game - the interesting and unusual food (we lived on tapas for 4 days!), there's the beach too (maybe not in March), the cable car, boat trips, the funpark at Tibidao. It is a fantastic place for teenagers and young people (and the young-at-heart).

And I took my younger daughter to Dublin in December last year. While our primary purpose was to watch a rugby match and do our Christmas shopping, we had a really good time, and saw many of the sights. I'd say it is a funb city that appeals to teens, and we had a really good time there. Also in March there may well be an international Six Nations rugby match on at Croke Park. If you seriously consider Dublin as a destination then that can be researched for you.

Keep in touch... and let us know what/where you decide.

I think anyone who loves the water and boating would appreciate Venice, which is dependent on every imaginable kind of boat for its existence, since there are no cars. There are ferries to the lagoon islands of Murano(with its glass factories) and Burano, and of course the beautiful architecture of Basilica San Marco. Adjacent to it is the Doges Place and prison.

Just finding your way around the mazes of alleys and canals is an adventure in itself.

Hi ...

As you have been to places like Lake Tahoe & seem to like the out doors - how about Switerland - go up & down the mountains on trains, lots of walking, hang giding, paragliding etc.

Very beatiful.

Mark

Did you ever make a decision on the NEXT trip? Spring Break is kind of hard due to the weather; I want to take the kids to London, Holland, Germany and Switzerland, but I think all would be better in the summer. We went to Costa Rica in March and LOVED it. Spain is intriguing.

March is too early in Europe for beach holidays of any kind as the water will be too cold & facilities of any sort (including hotels, ferrys, flights, restaurants) will be limited
