(Personally, I agreed with the South Africa thing, but you said no long road trips)
I met given the time of 2 weeks, the driving must be less than half of sightseeing time if it's a road trip. You might be able to do South Africa that way.

I love southern Europe and South America, but since you said budget wasn't an issue, I have to also go along with South Africa. I did have an opportunity to spend several weeks in the country, but it was a working trip and I only had an opportunity to be a tourist, and for only one afternoon. This was fifteen-years ago and every time I think about it, I kick myself in the seat of the pants for not taking an extra week as vacation and go on safari and visit other places than an airport in the middle of nowhere, (where we were conduction flight ops). Since you have two weeks, throw in a few days in Botswana. If the flights were not so expensive, I would visit almost every year.

The Out Islands (Family Islands) of the Bahamas, by far my most favorite place on the entire globe.

As luck would have it, that is EXACTLY what I'll be doing in July---for 2 weeks!

I'd like to go hiking through the Swiss and Italian Alps. Maybe take a few train rides as well.

Also I wouldn't mind sailing around the Greek and Turkish coasts.

I would suggest a little circle tour of Vienna, Venice, and the Adriatic coast of Croatia. Vienna and Venice are must-see cultural and historic cities. The distance is short, and your visit will expose you to all three cultural regions of Europe -- Latin, Germanic and Slavic.

Or shorten the distance even more -- Visit Innsbruck in the Alps, Venice, and **** on the Adriatic.

**** = Alup, spelled backwards,

Definitely London - I've been there twice already, but there's a lot more that I'd like to see and do.
