Taking Suggestions

Delta is changing their frequent flier miles deal on September 1, 2008 to something less pleasant. I have hoarded a decent number of miles and need to pull the trigger on a ticket by that date for a trip sometime after that.

So i'm taking suggestions on where I should go on my solo adventure.

The rules:

1. International
2. I've already spent a decent amount of time in the Caribbean, Mexico, Italy and France, so i don't want to go there again.
3. I don't have enough miles for Austrailia, India, Africa, the Middle East, or the Southwestern Pacific (no Fiji for me).
4. I'm don't want to spend a kabillion dollars once i'm there. So Iceland and Japan probably wouldn't be ideal.
5. I'm thinking Spring.
6. I'm probably going by myself (which I've done before in the aforementioned locations and I love it). Though i might be open to some sort of organized multisport adventure sort of excursion.

So far i'm considering Thailand, Argentina, Greece... but I just started thinking about it.

Any thoughts?

Don't go to Thailand!!! I think Argentina would be amazing. My friends are going on a trip to Equador at the end of the month and that sounds like a trip that would be pretty fantastic and cost effective.

I cannot say enough to recommend Greece. I took myself on my own honeymoon there last spring, before the tourist season, to a non-touristy island for 17 days and never wanted to come home.

If you want to see my photos and read my reflections about the trip, it's all on my blog, see "trip to greece" in the side bar and remember the posts go back in time.

I'd be happy to advise, share hotel info, etc. I rented a studio apartment right on the beach for $35 a night. Food was excellent and not expensive. The flight was the spendy part. I got a great car deal so I could explore. Wonderful, war, but small community of gay women.

I felt so safe and free in Greece, even at night in Athens.

Go. You won't regret it.
