As le noun noted, I am looking for something outside the US. Normally I would save my vacation for the winter time, however, I am already going to have about 6 weeks between finishing work and going to school... so i'd like to make something of it.
I am going to look into the Uk to France to Spain adventure and also Egypt. If anyone has done either one of these trips, feel free to PM me with suggestions of places to stay, kiting spots, etc. Will have to make a decision very soon!
Thanks for all the suggetsions and ideas!
