So I am turning 40 and I have 2 weeks off in mid October for my birthday. I want to do something special but not break the bank. My idea was to relax on a nice beach and try my hand at surfing (something I have always wanted to try).
Hawaii is on my list - but just airfare and hotel for my girlfriend and I are costing around 6200. No food, booze, or activities. We prefer nicer hotels (4 star and up). We thought about Thailand but it seems to be the rainy season.
I am hoping some of you more travelled folks out there can suggest some other options. We'd be leaving from NYC and will have 10-12 days to spend some where.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
