Hi all,

I celebrate my 30th in November and i want to do something/go somewhere i havent been before so i can say i did something for my 30th, something new and exciting.
I really want to drive some of Route 66 but this might not be an option because of cost to me and my girlfriend.
So i thought i'd try to come up with a plan b that involved somewhere in Europe (Im from the UK).
So im looking for idea's from you guys on a location, with things to do (Plenty of things to do because i get bored easily) somewhere that isn't really manic, ideally a long weekend, 4-5-6 days.
I've been to Germany and France (Although not all parts) and a few places in Spain and Portugal and Italy but not alot else.
Maybe Scandanavia?
Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions etc gratefully received.

Thanks

Why not take a road trip through Europe?, or at least parts of it. There is tons you can do with a car and you won't get bored. Stop off in places that you've never been, Holland, Belgium.

I've never been to Scandinavia but November is a snowy month for them, The Christmas rates won't be up yet so you'll get to get a wintry feel without really high prices!

It really depends on what you want to do with your holiday, adventure holidays? City holidays? Road trip holidays?
You have tons of options :)

Hey Grawr, thanks for the reply.

I do like the idea of Scandinavia, might look into that abit more.
And a Euro road trip could work, although i dont want to spend too long driving if i can help (I know i would be down route 66 but this is plan b)
I'd like a holiday that involves abit of everything really, some relaxing, some adventure, some historic sights, some new age sights, the lot really.
Ideally not to expensive but roughly 5 days of high enjoyment and difference.

If you come on nowember you cant have beach and sun stuff.

So if I were I would choose among, Prag, Budapest, Athens, Istanbul, St Petersburg and Wien surely.
