So my ladyfriend and I got $400 each in free airline tickets from US Airways last year for giving up our tickets on an overbooked flight. Now the time is running out for us to actually take advantage of it, so we figured we'd take a trip this thanksgiving. But to where? Anywhere! We're thinking somewhere in Europe right now. I'm trying to avoid Germany Austria Switzerland Italy and Greece because I want to see a new place.

Any thoughts? Where would you go if you could go anywhere in the world?

Spain and Southern Italy are great for a lot of similar reasons. Great weather, amazing food, and above all an open culture where you can just approach anyone and have a conversation. Within like 2 hours of getting into Naples, we had made like four friends from there we met in the square and just spent the whole time we were there drinking and hanging out with them.

Naples is really great, it was the first really awesome city I've been to that tourism has more or less left alone. It's not expensive and the weirdest thing is that the restaurants you read about on the internet or in lonely planet or whatever aren't total tourist traps, they really are the same restaurants that people in that city go to.

Even though it'll be fairly cold during Thanksgiving, I recommend Iceland. It's off-season so things are relatively cheap compared to during the high season, and you'll probably get to see plenty of northern lights. Flights run about $550 out of Boston.

Seconded on Spain or Southern Italy, especially Spain. Sevilla and Granada are the tits. Awesome food, super cool cities, everyone's friendly.

Thanks for the all the tips guys! At the moment we're thinking of Madrid->train->Barcelona->plane->Paris->train->London (or maybe reverse order) and possibly skipping Barcelona. 10 days total.

I guess i'll be brushing up on my spanish rather than my german.

I forgot: you shouldn't skip Barcelona. Objectively, it's a much more interesting city than Madrid, even though it doesn't have me.

So we bought our tickets to arrive in london and depart from madrid.. The idea at the moment remains London -train> Paris -flight> Barcelona -train> Madrid. Thanks for the offer ice but it looks like we won't be swinging by your way.

Sukkit maybe you help me out here - I want to do a sleeper train from Barcelona to Madrid so that we can save ourselves a night in a hotel and cut down on wasted travel time... but for all the people who talk about it, I can't seem to find a place to book such tickets anywhere. Do they not do this anymore? I tried renfe and a couple other sites and I can't figure it out.

I will check their sites for you but I'm not sure this is a thing for normal routes.

K apparently there's this sleeper train called Estrella, which everybody describes as "third-world train" but hey. I just did a random check for November 8th and found a Estrella train from Madrid to Barcelona which departs at 10:20 pm and arrives at 7:21 am

Berths

Compartments for 6 people with 3 berths on each side.

The compartments have an extension ladder to climb up to the top berths, a luggage area, compartment door with inner safety lock, individual light for each person, rack for personal belongings, lighting control panel and air conditioning.

They are sold as: compartments for ladies, gentlemen or mixed, when tickets are purchased individually.

A full compartment can also be booked, which includes a discount.

That's for 56,60 right now.

Personally I'd say it's hardly worth it. Might as well take a lowcost plane and sleep in a hostal when you get there.

Thanks for checking it out for me. Unfortunately I couldn't find one going to Madrid from Barcelona. I guess we'll just do the regular high speed train and knock the journey out in 3 hours. It's funny but that's actually the most expensive step as far as I can tell right now, the train from london to paris is much cheaper and the plane from Paris to Barcelona is much much cheaper.
