Ok, I want to go away somehere and I don't have a clue. I've been to many places and I want to keep my next adventure in the USA. I live in NYC, I've been thinking about Cape Cod, never been there. I would love to hear your suggestions.
Oooh.. Venice........ Italians. SOLD!How long can your holiday last, Mel? Because if you DO decide on Europe then I think you could stay 3-4 days at a time in some lovely cities.... Prague looks great, and Venice would be a fab place to visit, me thinks.
Damn straight.And you should definitely find a few days to chill in Spain... it's nice there.
Holy shit! I cannot believe you live in Manchester and have never been to London! It's only 3 hours drive. You could go for a weekend!One place I'd love to see is - *drumroll* - London. Nope. Never been there! How sad is that. Love flying to other European countries, and have yet to visit the capital.
It depends on how soon you are going and if you can fly or not.Ok, I want to go away somehere and I don't have a clue. I've been to many places and I want to keep my next adventure in the USA. I live in NYC, I've been thinking about Cape Cod, never been there. I would love to hear your suggestions.
When were you in Austin?I liked Austin Tx. It has a good music/bar scene. A good variety and lots of things to do. Decent shopping and its a good sports venue (although San Antonio is better for sports.)
Back in my radio/tv days I went to South by Southwest a couple of years. Had a blast. I also had a friend who was the ticket manager for the Spurs. . so I visited him a few times. That would have been like 95-98.When were you in Austin?
I realize now how spoiled I was with the 24 hour cafes and SoCo... Anchorage practically shuts down at 6pm. Even wal mart closes at midnight!
That took some adjusting. On particularly rough/sleepless nights, we were used to being like "fuck it, let's go down to magnolia's and get some queso" ... now, we can't even cruise around wal mart for kicks. Suck.
I'm partial to it, but I'll second the Austin, TX suggestion. It's so much fun, Stella - and it doesn't matter what day of the week it is, downtown is poppin.
Good, live music also runs in abundance in Austin.
The local artists are ALWAYS out on the weekends with great stuff and a run down South Congress (leads straight to the capital) is a blast. It's lined with quirkly little shops and really good restaurants. There's also a magnolia cafe on SoCo. If you go to Austin, the trip isn't complete without eating at either Kerbey Lane (on kerbey or Lamar) or Magnolia Cafe (soco is my fave).
