7 Days in july. If you could go anywhere, where would it be & why?I've recently just started a full time job 7 days a week, and need something to look forward to in the summer. I was wandering if anybody had any suggestions. Where have you always wanted to go to? Anything on your bucket list? Bear in mind i only have 7 days, i want it to be unforgettable.

1Well, if you live on the east coast of Canada or the U.S., a 7 day trip to Australia would be unforgettable. But that's because you would spend half of it on an airplane, and the other half being about 10 hours out of synch with local time.
To put it another way...
What is your nationality? This affects visa requirements, which in turn affects where you can go.
Where is your nearest airport with international flights?
What do you want to do that's unforgettable? Sex with a "ladyboy" in Bangkok? A rim-to-rim hike of the Grand Canyon? Something else?
What's your budget?

3It depends on what do you consider fun and interesting. For example, many people finds San Fermin Festival (in Pamplona, Spain) fun and interesting and that's why there are so many visitors in those dates (around 7th July) but other people doesn't like that festival (nor any other similar). Only an example to illustrate that fun and interesting mean different things to several people (it would be almost impossible to find now accomodation in Pamplona in those days).

41500 quid in July. Hmm.
Well, you haven't given any hint as to how well traveled you are and what your tastes are.
However, I know I would fly to Moscow and fly back from St Petersburg. In fact that's what I'm thinking of doing with 7 days over Summer.
I've not been to Russia before, I am interested in the history, I want to see the sights, I don't want to go when it's too cold, they are supposed to be great for backpackers.

5So many options. You should just check out cheap flights on Ryan Air, and do some research from there. I have no idea what you like, but Portugal was an awesome relaxing place to be. I stayed for a few days close in Lagos, which is a beach town in the south. I went about 6 years ago and Ryan Air flew out of Faro, which was about a 2 hour train ride to Lagos, if I remember correctly. Portugal was pretty cheap, goregeous scenary! I went surfing one day outside of the city, hung out on the beach most of the others.
If you are into history, Rome is pretty cool. The ruines are much more intact than those in Greece. The south of France is pretty awesome too. I think you are in the UK, so even renting a car and driving around Scotland would be cool (if you haven't done that before). Ireland also awesome. Staying in hostels can cut down on the cost, if you are okay with shared accommodation.

Don´t know if you are looking for party/beach/sun or more into cultural trip... I say Istanbul, amazing city, mixture of cultures, good food, nice people.
If you are looking for more relax, maybe somewhere in Spain, like Andalucia or some islands, Mallorca for instance is nice for party, beach and sun.
