Assuming you want to travel across Europe, I suggest visiting Spain and Italy. Both countries are famous for their strong historically relevant places, museums and old streets. Apart from that you can visit beautiful and other good places too. My visit to Italy was just amazing which i did after American airways letter arrived. You must plan your travel so that additional expense on money could be cut down. You must take good clothes, suiting the weather there, camera, sufficient amount of money (don't carry all in you wallet, but put in ATM). My travel was fun as i got American airways free ticket letter, for me and my boyfriend..:) There are many places to visit, so take a break for at least 3 weeks.. Enjoy your trip!!

And I suggest Eastern Europe. Poland is very interesting. You should visit KRakow - one of the most amazing places in Europe. You should pack only the most basic things. (warm and thin clothes, documents) Money - always have cash with you (hidden in many different places, )

Traveling around Europe can be expensive, even on a shoestring. If you don't have a big budget, try India. I spent some time traveling around Kerala, the Southwest state on the Indian Ocean. It was one of the most amazing places I have ever been. I highly recommend it. Take a houseboat trip in Alleppey. It is stunningly beautiful. Then you can move into the mountains around Munnar and see all the tea plantations, especially the Kolukkumalai tea plantation which is the highest elevation tea plantation in the world. It is like traveling back in time and the 2 hour 4-wheel drive exursion to get there up the side of the mountain is an adventure!

This definitely sounds like an adventure. Whatever you do, don't forget or lose your passports. The couple we traveled to Italy with couldn't find them and it created a huge headache.

have fun!
