I am a well traveled individual and usually head out for a trip here and there.. This april I have about 10 days to go away with my girlfriend (she is a teacher). I am drawing a complete blank of where to go. I would like to spend no more than $1700 total with airfare, cheaper if possible.. We usually sleep in a double dorm roon. We like adventurous places so rule the carribean out. We will fly just about anywhere, looked into going back to australia but that is just a bit to far that length of time.. Does anyone have any ideas for an a-typical travel location? Any ideas would help. Thanks

Where have you been already?

I did a great 9 day trip a few years ago to Morroco. A few days in Marrakesh but then a landrover trip through the Atlas mountains and into the dessert visiting Berber villages and Kasbahs. Was about €400 for landrover trip per person (included all food and accomodation i.e a tent), plus a Riad in Marrakesh for a few days (these vary in price). I'm in Europe though so my flights there were pretty cheap...

Asia might be cheaper to get to from the the US. I did a 5 day jungle expedition (trekking, rafting, elephant riding) from Umphang in Thailand last year...and you could combine this with some time in Bangkok or the south of Thailand to make up the ten days. A five day trip woulkd be about €300 plus your flights and whatever you wanted to do as well. www.umphanghill.com
