I am just looking for general opinions on what you would rather do. We are experienced Europe travelers. Our budget is $5k (we travel very modestly), and we have 10-12 days to go in late November-early December.
We have narrowed our options down to:
We live in Chicago, so we are used to cold and wet weather in November/December, so that isn't much of a concern (though if it's really bad, please let me know). We're not terribly in to super touristy things, though I love museums and art. Walking, roughing it, sights off of the map are what we are ideally looking for. We're late 20s, so up to anything.
My husband has been to Spain (and is Spanish speaking) and did a college-esque trip to Amsterdam in his prime. He has no preference. I am a city girl who has mainly done eastern Europe/Germany/Switzerland, so I also have no frame of reference.
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!
