Where should I go

by kringenwally »

Are you a Kiwi? How long do you have for your trip? What's your budget? You can fly via the US to Europe, no problem, possibly on a favorable "around the world" ticket with partner airlines, but what about the rest?

I  have in theory 6 weeks but would love to keep under a month during New Zealand winter holidays. I am studying at University. I  want to keep it under 9000 dollars not including food including airfare.

I love Europe and its  sights , the history and culture , I love to try fresh ingredents sourced by locals, and have a look at Tuscany I also love to see  Rome and Venice and Paris and London. For the cultrual attractions and sights that are so unique and amazing and having great parks and sights not seen in New Zealand. But I have family in the United States and am not sure where I should go in the United States as many have great architecture and great museums and parks. Which country should I go to.  Can I do both???

So the wish list is:  London, Paris, Venice, Tuscany, Rome, and somewhere in the U.S.

Given how spread out these places are, you'll be challenged to fit them all into a month, but I think it is possible.  The bigger challenge may be making the money work.  It will depend on how much of your money goes for airfare, and I'm not the one to advise you on that.  The places you want to visit aren't particularly easy to do on the cheap, although if you're up for hosteling, I think you'll be OK.

If you have relatives in the US, are they somewhere you are interested in going?  You can get a taste of American culture anywhere in the country, but if you're looking for iconic architecture and great museums, I'd advise New York and Washington, DC.  Unfortunately, these are both expensive places to stay, and New York's museums are expensive, but there are lots of first-rate museums and sights in Washington, DC that are completely free - you can see plenty in three or four days and not spend money on anything but bus fare between things.  However, if you're thinking to economize by staying with your relatives, you'll need to figure out what is of interest to you that's within range of that place.

If you spend 8-10 days in the US, you'll still have enough time to spend four days or so in each of your other destinations, which is enough time for a decent look-around.

The place to start would be looking for airfare, and figuring out where in the US you would like to go.

In my experience multi-continent tickets are best bought from a consolidator when price is a big factor.  I buy mine from http://www.airtreks.com/   and their website is fun and informative even if you end up buying elsewhere.  Use the Tripplanner to help with ideas and possible costs and then one of their agents to help you pin down the costs of what they offer.  I've used the comapny a number of times now and have been very satisfied but one in your part of the world may be more practical, although maybe not.  Have a look.

I've seen a whole lot of the world but my hands-down favorite city in the US for what you describe is New Orleans----fantastic music, architecture, food and culture, like NO WHERE ELSE in this country.  Second would be Chicago, which has fabulous food, music, architecture AND world-class museums.  Both are world-class cities, in my humble opinion.  Best of luck to you!
