So Pear Tree peeps, I have a dilemma. I have been collecting Aeroplan air miles for some time, now, and am about to loose them if I don’t use them by the end of the year. I’ve got enough to get me almost anywhere on mainland North America (probably not Mexico, though), and, yes, the travel bug is itching!
I wish I had enough to travel further afield (Europe, anyone?), but at this point that’s just not meant to be.
I’ve been all down the west coast of Canada and the United States, and am not interested in using my miles for somewhere I’ve already been. I’d really like to explore further East. St. John’s, Newfoundland, for example, or maybe New York.
Part of me wants to just close my eyes and point my finger over somewhere in North America, and just go, but I don’t know if I’m really that brave or adventurous.
So I’m asking you, faithful readers, for some direction. I know you hail from diverse places, and many of you are well-travelled. Where do you recommend? I’m open to ideas, but should point out that I prefer the arts, architecture, cool coffee shops, book stores and history to shopping. And no resorts, please.
Where is someplace that’s stayed with you, that you would like to go back to; that you would recommend?
Because I really don’t want to use those hard-earned miles on merchandise I don’t particularly crave…
