I either have time but no money or money but no time. This question concerns the first scenario.

I am lucky (?) enough to have 6 weeks of unpaid 'vacation' in December/January. Some of it I'll use visiting family for the holidays, but I still have a month or so free. What exciting thing(s) can I do with myself during that time that won't cost too much money? Say... $1000-2000 (or less!)

I am looking for something to do with myself starting after new years for 2-4 weeks. I would prefer to go somewhere. I do not have a car. My standards for room and board are pretty low-- I am cool with hostels or camping (weather permitting) or other cheap options. I would be flying/traveling out of Chicago or Providence/Boston/NYC.
I'm primarily just wanting to use this time for something other than watching 30 Rock reruns in my bed. I just want to learn something new or do something interesting, and I would prefer I got to go somewhere new to do it-- so a trip or a cheap class or a project I could latch on to... anything like that.
I'm 25, I like outdoorsy things, artsy things, learning new things, and I would love to take a trip somewhere where it is sunny and doesn't get dark at four in the afternoon.
I'm definitely open to something international if in budget-- I have a passport and a fair amount of experience traveling, including in the developing world. I speak some spanish.
I know this question is wide open and vague, I'm just looking for ideas.
