Where to go?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone - I recently won 2 airline tickets to "anywhere in the world." I'm hoping to travel with my two children (ages 9 & 17) to somewhere in Europe over Thanksgiving this year. I have not been out of the states 25 years, so I'm essentially a novice again. We'll have about a week. We don't mind the cold (I prefer it, actually) however we're language-challenged Americans who only know English, so I'm sure it's smarter to stay out of the more rural areas to avoid any language barriers. I should mention I'm a single mom, so I have to be extremely mindful of the budget. My son would love to go to Germany, but I'm not sure if that might be too much of a challenge this first time out (seeings how the extent of our knowledge of the German language is limited to post-sneeze blessings and hot dog toppings.) My daughter was thinking Austria or Ireland. With regards to accommodations, I don't mind B&B's (sometimes prefer them to the big hotels) and ground travel will be limited to taxi's and trains. Given the parameters, where would you suggest we go? ANY guidance would be most appreciated!!
