I've been mulling over the idea to hike to Annapurna base camp in Nepal within the next 6 months to a year. That should take about two weeks between landing in Kathmandu, getting to Pokhara (ABC's nearest large establishment) and doing the trek back and forth, I would think.

I'm not too sure if I would go all the way, just close enough to easily see the massive peaks. I'm mostly interested in some nice views as opposed to actually being in a big glacier at 4,500 or so metres. We shall see!

I'm now obsessed with British Columbia, so maybe Vancouver and then take a drive up the coastline.

Buenos Aires, Argentina or London, England.

I spent a week in Dublin, Ireland a few years back and would love to go back there as well.

We just did this with NYC. It was awesome. Almost 2 full weeks with no agenda and unlimited metro cards. Hop on / hop off to take the subway anywhere we wanted. One of the most fun vacations we have had even though it is domestic and often viewed as 'over-rated'.

People's definition of the word "awesome" is becoming ever thinner.

I don't really get what you are going for there. Sure, if you completely cut up my post to create a sentence that doesn't exist then yes you can make it appear that way. Unlimited metro cards and the subway weren't the "awesome" part of the trip. They just contributed to it and contribute to this post because they make an extended trip to the area very easy. Definitely not the first nor the last time I have or will use public transit in the large American cities if that is what you were implying...

The implied notion was that, there is always SO much to do in NYC, and the public transit is so extensive and cheap there that it is a GREAT destination to go to if you have a couple weeks to just bum around and explore. You can cover so much ground between your own two-feet and the metro system. You certainly will not run out of things to do or see in 2 weeks even if you have already been there several times. Yes, the amount of stuff that you can do/see/explore in 2 weeks in NYC is pretty 'awesome' to me for a vacation of that time frame in a single 'destination' as the thread implied.

That was the intent of mentioning the metro card and the subway. Sorry if my post came off differently... Part of the issue may be that from the occasional browsing I do on this board, you appear to be much more attracted to more 'rural' and nature-based traveling. And, while I do enjoy that too, my wife and I both love exploring cities. We love the energy, the culture, the fact that there are always things going on. We purposely live in a low cost of living area but enjoy visiting big cities frequently. It's a good middle ground to keep COL down.
