    I need a few options? A long Holiday is needed.

    Sea, sun and sand has always been a favorite.
    Maybe a change? Maybe not?
    What do you think.....what's your suggestions?

    What have you always wanted to try, but don't know how to do?

    Surf?
    Sail?
    Scuba?

    Sign up for lessons or a camp somewhere. Costa Rica, San Diego, San Juan Islands. (From south to north.)

    Ever been to Maine/New England? I love going to Maine, there are some great beaches, including beautiful and gay friendly/destination Ogunquit Maine. You could easily fly into Boston and do "city" stuff for a day or two. Then head up to Maine do the beach things for a couple days, then I would recommend heading to West Forks Maine to go whitewater rafting, which is the perfect activity on a hot summer day, and get some camping/hiking in. I live in Boston, but I go rafting all the time up there on weekends in the summer, it is a blast. Depending on how much time you are planning you could continue on from West Forks up to Quebec City, which is stunning, or even Montreal.

    Yes, Greece.
    I love the islands. Totally casual lifestyle, great food, beautiful scenery, hot boys...
    But go early, June is best. August is beastly hot and way too crowded.

    And then there's Spain...
    Barcelona is a favorite, but Cadiz and the Costa de la Luz are a very cool off-the-beaten-path escape - check out Tarifa for kite boarding, or Conil for just lounging.

    Or Lagos, Portugal...

    Did a trip last summer that was not usual-- Northern Ireland and Ireland. Fly into Dublin and drive north. You can see the cities and we did but we spent our time on the coastline working our way west and eventually down into Ireland and Connemara County. Lots of hiking and diving and "coasteering." Stunningly beautiful, prosperous, great beer, music, people are extremely friendly. Spend your nights in pubs and you'll be talking to people non-stop from all over Europe. We ended up back in Dublin and tacked on a few days in Amsterdam which was amazing...

    Well, if looking at Greece, consider Croatia...

    I am also getting ready for an extended vacation after graduation, and I am considering New Zealand. Still doing research as I would actually like to go during the off tourist season.
