Timeline: 7-9 days tops including travel to and from destination (we are in Minneapolis).
When: This would occur early Fall (Sept/Oct)
Where: We have looked lightly into going to France, or Hungary. Given the capacity of travel, anywhere in Asia or Australia is definitely out.
Who: We want to go solo...err just the two of us. There is a lot of information for travel groups. As much as we like other people, we prefer a self guided tour rather than group travel.
Other important facts:
1) We need to rent bikes, rather than transport our own.
2) We want to stay in 2-3 star lodging.
3) We want a location/region with fantastic food. We are huge foodies and in to trying new things and various cuisines. Because of all of this, Italy is an obvious choice, but we may want something less obvious.
Us: I'm in my mid 20's, and he in his early 30s. While we are both young and somewhat active, we wouldn't want to bike more than 20-30 miles a day. He has traveled extensively in Europe, and I not as much. We both feel comfortable in foreign countries despite not knowing the language and our ability to get around. We are both adventurous and just want to get out there!
I think this covers everything, but I can clarify anything else that may come up.
