Vacation time!!

Nuff of the poli-sci talk. I'm thinking about going on a vacation.But where? I've been to Mexico,Canada, and France, Paris has too many memories.. How about Italy? or Spain? When are the fun times to go? Where do the coolpeople hang out? I'm up for any suggestions. I was thinking about club med, a female traveling by herself could do worse, but I wish to do better. Brazil? When IS carnival?Coasta Rica? Jamaica? Some help here please! Now that I have a new job lined up that pays more money with less hours I need to take a break before I start back to the daily grind. Help a sister out. Please drop me a line. Greece?

Greetings! I just realized that you live right down the road from me (I'm in Galveston). Anyway, may I suggest that you consider 3 things:

1) Stay away from high crime areas (Brazil)
2) Stay away from places that are not exactly American friendly (Greece)
3) Select a place that matches your personality. For example Copenhagen is obviously the top party spot in the world - but if you are not into heavy duty partying...

Here are some personal recommendations: Tuscany region of Italy - EXTREMELY nice, laid back, you will not find nicer people! St. Thomas Virgin Islands - the island has everything; laid back, nice people, festive atmosphere, not too expensive, lots to do, you will feel comfortable as an African-American. Carnival Cruise Lines - perhaps the best vacation package you can take. Izmir, Turkey - beauty, quaint, exotic, a touch of the Middle East but not radical, the people are very nice.

As a final note, if I had the time and $, I would go on a safari!!!

I went to Spain last year and was pleasantly surprised. The Barcelona area never sleeps, clubs open all night..right on the Mediterranean also. Seville is an awesome place much history. I was there 2 weeks and would have stayed a month if I could have.
