My husband and I are going to go on an international vacation this summer, and we are having a difficult time making a decision as to where we want to go. We have it narrowed down to the following:


Dublin, Ireland

Paris, France

Rome, Italy

Athens, Greece

Tel Aviv, Israel

Sydney, Australia

London, England

Edinburgh, Scotland


What sounds most interesting? I'm a photographer, and I love history, so we want a vacation destination with lots of historical places to visit, and lots of photographic opportunities as well as be a fun family vacation.


Any input? Oh we are tentatively planning this for end of July, beginning of August before I start my last semester at the CC before going to the University. It's my early graduation gift, since I am finishing in December, and starting at the University next January, we wont have an opportunity to take a graduation vacation until next summer. So we decided this summer it is. (I wouldn't mind waiting, however, since the In-laws are going to help watch the kids so hubs and I have some free adult fun, they are insisting we go this summer.) They want me to chose the destination. (Yes they are paying for a bulk of this vacation.)

I'm lost, I want to go to Ireland, because that's my ancestral link line. (Maiden name is McClellan, as Irish as they come.)

I want to go to Paris because it's the city of love!

Rome and Greece draw me because of their historical places to see such as the colosseum, etc. (I love history.)

Sydney and London also sound amazingly fun and are two places my husband suggested so I know those are two places he would like to visit.

Tel Aviv because it's the Holy Land. Yes my husband and I have ALWAYS wanted to travel to the Holy Land.

Scotland because my husband and I both have ancestral ties there.


So what do you ladies think? Where should we chose? I'm really torn!

I've always wanted to go to London, and we figured might as well go see Paris too lol. I've never travelled out of the country, so I'm stoked to go almost anywhere.
This will be our much belated honeymoon, and we didn't want to go anywhere tropical.

 I enjoyed Rome but not so much that I'd want to spend a great deal of time there.  Don't like Paris.  London is nice.  I love the islands in Greece.  Never been to Athens.  I just heard something about the economy being bad in Greece so I'd check that part out....could be a good thing (your money will go far) and could be a bad thing (crime).  My vote goes to Ireland.  I haven't been there yet but I have relatives that have and they loved it and the pictures are gorgeous.

Rome was really fun to photgraph (and met my hubby in Italy). Always wanted to got to Ireland and sister loved her vacation there. We would love to go to Tel Aviv (almost went in college). No desire to go to Paris

I loved Italy. I hated Paris. It is a gross and disgusting city, but the louvre was cool...
