Default 8 days to travel internationally, where should i go?

I have been to Ireland, England, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Kenya (and live in US). I have the opportunity to travel anywhere for a little over a week and will be flying out of chicago. Suggestions? I would like to go somewhere I havent been. Japan, Thailand, Cambodia would be nice but I think the flight might be just a bit too long considering I only have 8 days. Any european or south american destinations you recommend.

I realize this is almost a silly question but I figured I could get some great ideas here that I probably haven't considered.

Thanks!

Default A last minute invitation

Hello, Alan, I´ve just read your post.
Well, we´re going to Torres, a small city in Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil, to photograph the International Hot Air Baloon Festival next weekend (in fact, it´s a 4 day mini TE meeting).
If you´re interested, please contact me and we can discuss the details. The link to the Festival is in my intro page.

Best regards,
Isabel

Come and visit FRANCE! Now for a week, you have to plan what you want to see. I recommend you stay in one place instead of traveling everyday to have a complete view of the country.
A city with lots of history: see the big cities. You like sea: Britany, Normandy, South West, south East (French Riviera). You like mountains: go and visit the Alps or Pyrénées.

I suggest you to select place from Carribean, there are so many nice places in Carribean like Jamaica, Aruba, The Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Turks and Caicos, Greater Antilles and Lesser Antilles. you can select any thing from this because all places are very beautiful.

There are many beautiful places to <a href=http:// www.securoseal.com>travel</a>, if you are booking tickets for <a href=http:// www.securoseal.com>air travel</a> you can search many places and plan accordingly.

Hi Alan. 8 days is enought to visit whole Morocco. I have been there in 2008 and during the same time I drove through whole country (1800 km). You can rent a car in Casablanca (cost for week is ca 300 USD), petrol and accomodation are very cheap. For sure you will take tons of beautifull pictures :-)
