We are totally lost as to how to begin this planning process. We are considering talking with travel agencies locally where we live but we want to explore our options without this vacation requiring massive amount of time and effort on our part to get it right.
We love cooking/food, photography, history and art. A wonderful trip for us would cater around these activities.
FYI: an important aspect of this trip is for me to visit my great uncle's grave at the WWII American cemetery in Luxembourg on behalf of my dad.
We are looking at a total budget of 8,000 to 10,000 USD.
