My wife and I have a few weeks off in April, and are thinking of trying to get some kind of overseas adventure in while we can. Here's what we'd like the trip to include:
-A combination of backpacking and more traditional traveling (you know, some "culture") The traveling part ideally would consist of hostels/cheap hotels/cheap B&Bs, public transportation, etc.
-Backpacking part ideally would include at least some level of "wilderness." Not necessarily going for high mileage; usually we do 10-20 mi/day (16-32km).
-Weather: As we'd like to minimize gear, I'm thinking of somewhere relatively dry in April(we're used to the north cascades, so a little moisture is fine!) This probably rules out anywhere really cold or with a lot of snow to deal with.
-We'd be flying out of Seattle or Vancouver, BC, so somewhere convenient for those places would be ideal, but really are open to anywhere in the world.
-Cheap is preferable, which probably rules out Western Europe.
I know y'all have done some fantastic trips, so now's the time to share your secrets.
