I appreciate the ideas so far. If you had to choose between Italy in March or Austria in March, which would be better? What places would be fun for children (I have a 9 year old son - we are having a father-son trip on a shoestring budget.) We are from Texas, so snow would be nice, but we also don't want to freeze to death.
I have the same question. I plan to travel to Eastern Europe (Prague, Budapest, Vienna) and a littleof Italy and Spain, and I have the option of going January 2007 or Oct 2006.
I can meet up w a friend and my brother if I go in January, but I dunno if the weather will make it worth it to go Oct 2006 alone.
Id appreciate suggestions. Thanks!
