I am 29 years old and for the first time and starting to save for a vacation outside this country and will have about $5,000, give or take, to travel where I want by the end of summer.
I have been all over the U.S. and have always been able to research easily the best areas to go, best spots to visit, etc.
However, in reasearching a place to visi outside the U.S. I am completeley lost. I need help. Obviously Euroupe is probably my best bet due to not having to have a guide/interpreter, even though I'd love to go to a place like Tokyo or Austrailia but can't spend over 5k.
My interest are quite simple, I lover history, scenery and pure adult relaxation. I don't care much for 'party scenes', and don't require a 'family enviroment'.
So I ask, where should I go? Should I use cash or credit? According to my research I am coming up with England, France, Spain and my top spots are Italy, Scottland and Ireland. I've also considered Hawaii. I would like to just spend a week somewhere in a nice area and enjoy history and scenery.
Please help me and any tips for traveling otside the country, no matter where you have been. I jsut need to narrow down a starting point to continue researching.
