Phil and I want to plan a vacation, away, just us, for a week. We’ve thought about it, and neither of us wants a vacation where we lie out on the beach. We like being active… not hiking active, mind you, more like running around exploring local shops, restaurants, interesting places and people. We’re considering Japan but wonder if only a week is enough. Maybe Japan is for another time, when the kids are a bit older and we can stand to be away from them for a bit longer.
My dream vacation involves toothsome bites and opportunities for interesting photography. I kind of have no interest in hiking volcanos and taking photos of flowers. I don’t need a fancy hotel, either. If I’m vacationing "correctly," I won’t be spending much time in the hotel… except when we stumble in with food coma and aching feet, late at night. Any suggestions? If you could get away for a week, where would you go?
