the time has come for me to ask, nay, beg for your opinions and advice. david graduates in may (hurrah!) and we are going to take a little vacation to celebrate! however, we can't seem to decide between san francisco, quebec/prince edward island and miami. there's a poll above and I need your recommendations. if you help me out (and follow the steps below), there will be a treat for you. here's what you do:
1. read about our ideas (below).
2. make an informed decision.
3. cast your vote (above).
4. leave me a comment if you have recommendations, ideas or advice (most grateful).
5. I'll choose a winner next week on january 28th at midnight from the comments.
san franciscopros: david has never been and I haven't been in years. I can finally go to miette, the ferry building and several other places I've been dying to go to from blogs I've read for years. public transportation.
cons: I can't seem to find a hotel for less than $120 a night. I don't know where to stay. it could be cold. or hot. or just right.
quebec/prince edward islandpros: the canadian exchange rate. this hotel - which we can totally afford. it's the closest thing to france we can afford. david has never been. I've always wanted to go to prince edward island (I did grow up on this movie). whale watching starts in may. I found an amazing gourmet tour.
cons: we don't speak french, lots of driving since we'll have to fly into manchester (southwest), we might spend more money than we want to.
miamipros: david wanted to go somewhere "beachy" (and, I mean, it is david's vacation after all). neither of us have been there. it could be very relaxing.
cons: there's a good chance it might be lame. we might be bored. and it might be a little trashy.
