I've been racking my vacation days and now I have about two weeks, and I want to travel somewhere. Husband just started new job so he doesn't have much vacation these days so it'll just be me.
So, for two weeks (anytime between end of May to July/August/whenever this summer, but I only have 2 weeks - aka 10 weekday vacation days to spend)
I'm 28/F/Asian female, and I'll be leaving from DFW
What I like:
Gorgeous natural scenery
Interesting historical attractions, museums, buildings (castles, ruins, etc)
Tasty/unique local eats (local restaurants, street food, etc) - I can try anything
I usually prefer smaller towns/cities but I do like some of the bigger cities as well
Other requirements that are nice to have:
Can travel on a budget if possible
Safe/easy for a solo female traveler to visit (important!)
Not TOO far of a plane ride (since I only have 2 weeks)
Easy to get around (plenty of public transit or easy walking, don't have to rent a car, etc)
I'll probably stay in mostly hostels
Decent weather during this period
NOT interested in:
Partying, drinking, nightlife, clubbing, yadda yadda...
I've already been to:
Many places across the US/Canada (San Fran, NYC, Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa, Toronto, DC, LA, New Orleans, National Parks in Utah/Arizona/Montana/Wyoming, Philly, Orlando, Santa Ynez Valley in CA)
Western Europe - I did this as a two month solo trip, so I've traveled alone before - (London, Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice, Rothenburg, Rhine River Valley, Munich, Dresden, Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg, Hallstatt, Lake Geneva, Lucerne, Lauterbrunnen Vallley, Lake Bled, Ljubljana, Cinque Terre)
China - Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Ljiang, Dali
Thailand - Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Phuket area (Karon, Koh Yao Noi, Koh Phi Phi, Phang Nga Bay, Koh Racha)
Indonesia - Bali (Nusa Lembongan, Ubud, Sanur)
(I've bolded my favorite places, if that makes suggestions a little easier.)
Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Portland, Vancouver)
Eastern Europe (Poland, Hungary, Czech, Romania?)
Benelux (Amsterdam, Brussels, etc)
Spain/Portugal? Maybe ferry to Morroco?
Japan? (Prob too expensive? Far?)
Costa Rica/Belize/Nicaragua (not sure how safe this is for a solo female?)
Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia (maybe too far to fly?)
Any other ideas?
