My wife and I (31 & 28) are looking at heading to Europe/Africa next year for 5-6 weeks. We are pretty seasoned travellers having been to all throughout USA, Central America, South America and parts of Asia over the past 4 years.
We have never been particularly interested in Europe, but just lately we are both having the itch and are looking at going. Really keen to hear from OzBargainers around ideas, I know Europe is such a large place, but areas that we seem to be particularly interested in are Croatia, Greece, Switzerland, Scotland and Spain. In Africa we basically want to maybe to go to Morocco, Egypt and on a 5-7 day safari type activity - but really keen to hear other peoples experiences as previous info from OzBargain has proved really useful, particularly when we travelled Central America :)
Our style of travel is generally pretty mixed, enjoy doing a physical challenge every trip (usually a trek) but also really enjoy eating out and trying local foods, cheesy and off the beaten track sightseeing, theme parks and everything in between. We have previously travelled on our own and in tour groups (G Adventures, Intrepid, TopDeck) and enjoy mixing that up, good way to meet new people and so on. Budget isn't super important within reason, we aren't the type to stay in the Hyatt in every city though as we don't spend that much time in hotel rooms, like to do airbnb and budget hotels in decent spots.
Any info people have about the best places to fly into, airline experiences, experiences with tour groups, fees entering and exiting countries and so on is greatly appreciated. (I know about Citibank / 28 Degrees)
