I have a week off around end of October, planning to get a trip to EU from NY. I'll be travelling solo, 6-7 days trip. What would be some great places to travel around that time for me?
Things I'm looking for in my destination:
Weather: Anything over not freezing will do. Preferably not much rain. The warmer the better.
Budget quality accommodation. I can afford about $60-100/night for a 4 star quality hotel/resort.
Fun event/festival nearby to participate for a day or two.
Easy casual hook-up with other tourist/local girls.
English speaking locals. They don't necessarily have to be native English, but gotta be able to understand/communicate with me.
Newbie friendly. It'll be my first vacation trip to EU since I was 14.
