  • What about an African Safari? Micato offers good ones, I know several good companies. A safari is magical. Next, I loved the Cook Islands (Rarotonga or Aitutaki). You can rent rooms in Castles all over France but my fav. spot is St. Tropez and Santorini in Greece but that's no good for Christmas. What about Thailand or Palau? How fun!!!

  • You clearly go for hot spots! Lol.
    My favorite place in the whole world is Jasper Alberta. It's beautiful.

    You can rent a whole house at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. It's gorgeous and there's quite a bit to do as well.

    I used to work there. I signed on for 6 months and ended up staying for 2 years. If my husband's job would allow it(which it doesn't) I'd move back there in a heartbeat.

  • Scotland. It is a magical place. Flights in winter are really cheap (I saw one for about $300.00 rt from NY) B&Bs are cheaper than hotels. Buses and trains are amazingly efficient over there. Food prices were about the same in restaurants but really cheap in grocery stores. I'd love to go back. I'll put that on my To Do list!

  • I would second the safari suggestion. South Africa is supposed to be gorgeous. I have been to Egypt and Kenya. I would also go anywhere in North Africa if we had the funds. Not know how long you have for the trip you could start at the pyramids, cruise the Nile and go on Safari in either Kenya or Tanzania, maybe see Zanzibar as well. Have fun!!

  • If you like Hawaii, try GUAM. It's awesome, even more beautiful beaches than Hawaii and alot less crowded. I can send you some links, we lived there for 2 years, and if you would like more info, PM me.

  • Much of the island is military (there is an Air Force base at the northern end and Navy in the middle), so you will find that they are very accomodating for Americans and the locals are EXTREMELY friendly. They will often invite you to their family barbecues if they see you on the beach at the time they are barbecuing (which is virtuallly every weekend). The shopping is excellent as it is duty free shopping (no tax), and they have lots of high end stores like Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, etc as well as Micronesia Mall which has more typical mall shopping. The hotels on Tumon Bay are top notch, and pretty much beach front property. There's quite a bit to do there even though it is a small small island, and some EXCELLENT restaurants. I recommend Old Hagatna Grill and Sam Choy's. If by some off chance you DO decide to go, PM me and I can tell you the best spots most tourists don't know about.
