I'd be v tempted by a big oz/nz trip, going to the great barrier reef, hiking in NZ, you could make great use of 2 months.

Or perhaps chile? You could go from top to bottom, visit the desert, climb some volcanoes, go down to patagonia and see some icebergs?

Very jealous!

I would go to the Mediterranean and scuba dive.

I would learn how to snow board and ski in the Swiss Alps.

You could always come to my place with its rich history in corn, beans and cows and I'll teach you how to Tango.

This question is worth putting down the pump for: I would hike through the Salzburg region and then bike from Vienna to Prague. Of course, I'd need to stay in decent hotels/lodges during the night because I'm a wimpy girl that way. No tents, please. Actually, this is a very doable trip--I've done parts of it before, so maybe someday. But not soon, probably.

Lucky you! Wherever you go, I'm sure it will be great. Although I'm pulling for Italy because I'd love to read all the food posts.

Wow, what a question. I vote Italy, blending into a small town for a couple of months, taking cooking classes, enjoying some wine in a Tuscan villa. Sounds like the ticket!

Mr. S and I were recently comtemplating this same thing recently (not to be, Mr. S just lost all his entitlements when he changed jobs). Our vote was Tuscany - it was a food-based decision.

But that decision is also based on the fact that we are sooo far from Europe (26 hour).

Sounds like you had a great time!

And I do not really have any advice on what to do on your break. Other than why not come to Finland! It's a great country, and I can give you tips on where to go and what to see.

I love Santa Barbara, too, and all the little wine towns in the interior area (Ballard, Los Olivos, etc). The weather reminds me a lot of the Mediterranean.

Unlike some of my traveling friends, I can't stay in one place too long. If I had some major time off to travel I'd likely hop a train in Milan and hit the major cities going south on the Adriatic side, then up north on the west coast, renting a car here and there to explore the remote hill towns....then up through the Cinque Terre and on into Southern France for a few weeks. Gosh....wouldn't that be nice.....?

Sounds like you had an excellent relaxing trip..

If I had the money, I would go to Australia or Africa and go on a safari. It's been my dream since I Was a little girl to do that! :)

well - being an optimist here - all those south americna places sound great - 'cept they might not be the best with a munchkin in tow - especially one of the age that likes to put everything in there mouth. so why doesn't the mister postpone the sabbatical another year and then you can spend a couple months at sesame street land and disneyland?

if you don't go, i'll go visit ankaisa in finland. i've just started trying to learn the language again.

The conference sounds great. I love Santa Barbara. I even like Ventura even though it is not as popular. We once stayed in a cute hotel there called the Pierpont Inn.

Hmm...if I could live anywhere for a month...I would have to vote for Italy. I know my husband would pick China or Australia and New Zealand though.
How fun to weigh all of your options!

your little trip sounds divine. i'm incredibly jealous. i'm glad you got to reconnect and relax, your life as of recent has been anything but relaxing.
hugs to you

2 months sounds divine. i think we'd go to hawaii. and just live there. but that's my tired self talking. if i had more energy, i might do italy. or australia.

I think I'd have to trek through Europe - well not trek exactly; 5 star would do...

Seriously though, I think you need to come to Oz and experience some of our hospitality and the beauty of this amazing country! Fabulous wines.... beautiful weather... incredible beaches... seafood to die for.... ;)

(tempted yet?)

Hmmm, I'd have to vote for melting into Italy or French countryside for a good month+. Great wine and food, not too long on the plane (relatively speaking). It's always been a dream of mine, at least. :)
