    My Mom has a bunch of timeshares (I hate them) and she's always traveling, but she "forgot" she has a 1 bedroom apartment for 1 week that has to be used by March 31, 2010. She's already booked all her winter places so she gave it to me to use.

    So - here's the question. Where should we go for a week? It can be ANYWHERE in the world, but because it's only a week I don't want to fly to .. say.. Singapore for 21 hours. That just takes too much time away from the week we have.

    I've already booked a trip to Germany for the first couple of weeks in March and NOW she tells me about the timeshare, so too late to use it for that trip!

    I thought of a few places in South America, but it's not that expensive in some of those countries and I kind of feel like getting a place where it's generally more expensive. Maybe a week in London, Paris or Madrid? It'll be cold there too, but hey - it's almost free. OR should we stay in the US?

    Anyone have some great places to see or do you live in a wonderful area that's also a great vacation spot?

    I'd go to England because it's my dream. I'd spend a few days in London, take a train to Thirsk, and see the Herriot museum.

    I think if I did another trip in a timeshare I'd go back to Sedona Arizona. It was beautiful there! The bahamas would be nice too, but there's so much of the US I haven't seen yet, and it only takes about 4 1/2 hours to get to AZ from our area!
