We have a lovely Intrepid Travel Forum that has great threads that are really fun to read, but I thought we were missing a general forum with ideas on good trips and resources and guides to plan them with. I was thinking about this because my Mom sent me a link with a travel alert for great deals to Tokyo and Cambodia on ANA. I was looking into Cambodia, and although I really want to see Angkor Wat, it looks like a bit more than I want to take on with my Mom (who is a little older and just not as physically active as my husband and I). I thought it might be nice to have a thread where you could post thoughts on where you want to travel, or your favorite past destinations (not a trip report, which should go in the thread). Around the time my Dad passed away, I decided to travel somewhere with my Mom every other year for about 7-10 days. This coming year would be the year, she has rented her home for commissioning week so we will go in May and has dedicated all the funds to the trip. Past locations we have gone have been Croatia, Hilton Head, Belize, Barbados and Paris. As you can see we kind of like to go to the beach, but we aren't opposed to other places. My Mom is really easy to travel with and is up for about anything, she is a great traveler and has traveled all over the place, but she is an age she wouldn't like me to discuss, and long days of hiking and huge numbers of stairs aren't her thing, per se, at least not most days. We have been thinking about Bali, as her neighbor knows a friend from Annapolis who moved there and might tag along. The flights are ridiculously long, but there are some pretty good deals. I was going to look into the Greek Isles too, but there are so many and it's a bit overwhelming. It is really hard not to go back to Croatia to be honest. I have been trying to think of other places that might be on our list of places to travel. I try not to pick places that my husband would want to go to, so no Italy, Austria, Budapest, Germany, Singapore, Chile, but there are a number of places he has no interest in going. I like to dive and Mom has her certification, but it isn't necessary, but is an added bonus. We also try to find pretty good deals on this trip, which is why we want to narrow down where we want to go so we can save, plan and try to find deals. Ireland was high up on the list, but it is likely where my other cousin wants to go for graduation in 4 years, so I am saving that one. Anyway I thought this thread would be useful for pre-planning when you know kind of what you want to do, but not per se where to go. Any thoughts?
