We went to France a few years ago and spent a few days in Paris but them skipped around the rest of the country. Grenoble is in the Alps and was a really nice town with hiking and nice hotels/hostels. We mostly cooked our own meals the whole time we were there. If you're interested in the south of France I highly recommend Nîmes. It was full of old Roman parks and buildings which was really cool. If we went back to France tomorrow though I would go to Brittany. We stayed with some friends there and it was absolutely amazing. Amazing hiking and old cities to walk around in. The weather can be really rainy but that's just part of the deal I guess for such a beautiful place. The food was very dairy/seafood centric but we were fine cooking our own and with such great cidre who cares about the food!

Outside of France my partner went to Poland and the Czech Republic many years ago and is anxious to go again since he loved it so much. I would really love to go to Norway too, especially Bergen area.

Be sure to choose the right place to spend your vacations, if you haven't decided explore the Balkans, might have some great un-discovered places!

So many options and ideas! Yay travel!

If you decide to do Paris + more of France, I can recommend spending some time in Normandy! I spent about a week last summer driving all over northern France and it was so nice! I'd be happy to talk to you about the details. Mont St. Michel, the Bayeux tapestry, Pointe du Hoc, all the WWII sites, Rouen, it's all great. And of course if you go to Paris you MUST go to my new favorite place, Giverny, for Monet's home & gardens. I think I took 200 pictures there, mostly of the water lillies. It's SO beautiful. And Paris man alive I love it so much. It's never a bad idea to go there.

This thread makes me a little sad, because instead of going on vacation this year, my dad got a giant cancerous tumor and had a massive surgery,and so we stayed home to help with him and be with my parents. But, we might go to Santa Barbara for a few days next weekend. Ha ha. Not quite Southern France, but better than nothing.

Oh no! I hope your dad is doing okay. At least you can save a bit more and go somewhere extra far away next year... like, say, Australia?

I am so sorry amey. I hope your father is doing well, and that you have a wonderful time with your vacation, even if you do have to save the international adventure for a little while.
