Secluded cave near Lagoa Algarve Portugal [Portugal is has it all. great food and wine sights natural spots (like this one) friendly people. and you can get away with your high school Spanish if you need to.
Venice, Italy is one of my all time favorite places to visit.the water lapping at doors which are peeling layers of paint, the crumbling brick, the moss covered stone and the windows with balconies . it has a unique beauty.
