Japan. Tokyo for a little, then get out... Smaller towns up in the hills would be an amazing introduction to the world after the stepping stone which is Tokyo 💪💪

+1 for deep end.

My 1st ever trip overseas was to Mumbai with the other half who had a work conference. Was a great introduction because I could go wander and explore all day on my own but there was a nice hotel to recover in each night.

LOL! That might be a bit much first up, but I've always said that Egypt is a good warmup for a trip to India so...

Pffft... 😜

Egypt is sensational; India is incredible.

Two different, yet equally amazing, experiences.

Just jump in the deep end and enjoy!

Safe, English widely spoken, geared into overdrive for tourism - what more do you want?

Frankly, you have not lived until you have experienced both of those places...

Oh I agree - but my own thoughts are do Egypt first which is what we are going to do in September. Many years ago I did both in one trip - hitchhiked from Cairo to Calcutta - back in the days before the Middle East became the total mess that it is today.

A week in the Napa Valley and San Francisco is what I’d do.
What are your interests?
Lots of options, but San Francisco is alwyas great. We stayed on Union Street, heaps of places to eat, drink and veg out. We had a car so spent time up in the Sonoma Valley and Russian River Valley - better than Napa I think. They don't camel rides though

With Corona virus on the rise, I would suggest New Zealand, Fiji or Norfolk Island all of which will be fine with the Australian dollar and less likely to have any chancy meetings - it seems to be popping up everywhere and that is only the countries who are disclosing it. The places I have mentioned have great options - NZ has so much to see and is a great experience; Norfolk Island is full of history and unique experiences such as progressive dinners, fish frys etc and other great experiences and uses Australian money; Fiji is great if you want a bit of a relaxing holiday along with coral reefs and native experiences - a Blue Lagoon Cruise is also special.

^ I’d be less worried about “chancy meetings” and more worried about stuff/flights/airports being shut down &/or cancelled. This Corona thing has only just started up, and dodgily-implemented quarantines are only delaying it’s spread. With a vaccine a minimum 18 months away, the effects are just gonna get more effecty.

Plenty of time between now and September to revise plans if needed. At the moment though we are going to Egypt for her first overseas trip - but I've told her that we are going to Bali :D

No mention of budget @RSD

I didn't travel overseas until I was 21. First trips were to Fiji and Thailand. Great introductions to the world for me.
How young you were, Ralph, as was I in 1970; I was also in my early twenties when I had my first O/S trip, to NZ. No merchant banking and no gross stupidity. In those days there was no problem with short vowels: an A was an A, an E was an E and and an I was an I in both countries.

Those were the days.
