My wife and I are exhausted and we need something really fun and exciting for just the two of us before our second child arrives in the spring of 2013. We live in NYC
Here is what I am thinking:
apartment or B+B type lodging
A city that is walkable and offers great food, culture, beauty, inspiration, and wonder.
We love the water, but don't want a place where the beach is all.
Warm or Cold matter little. Nightlife is unimportant but great performances would be a plus. Our idea of a wonderful meal can range from provisions from the market to the best we can afford white tablecloth.
My budget is $1500, but I can increase that if necessary.
We will someday go to Asia, but this won't be that trip.
Cities that we already love: New York, Los Angeles, Istanbul, Mexico City, Jerusalem, Seattle, San Francisco, Berlin, Dublin.
I would love for us to go somewhere new that we can both explore together. We both fell in love exploring NYC and we hunger for more. It's just harder when we both work and have a 3 year old.
