My wife and I are going on vacation, where would you recommend?

24 Answers

Ask questions about interests, finance, locations, etc..

My answer would be to always always listen to the wife, unless it is the wife directly asking for the recommendations. :) Less

I would first ask a couple of questions: 1. What type of vacation do you prefer: a) On the beach, b) outdoor + sports, c) sightseeing + culture, d) party + seek contact to persons of the opposite sex, e) shopping. 2. What time of the year do you want to go? 3. What budget do you have? 4. How long do you want to go? 5. Depending on answer to question 1, I would ask one last question about interests. Then I would make a recommendation. Less
