My wife and I recently won two tickets on Delta to anywhere in the world. Suggestions anyone? We love beaches, golf, food & wine!

Happy to be a part of the group. I consult internationally and have had clients in Mexico, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the Caribbean. It is always interesting to see all that is different and all that is the same.

I live in Southeast Asia for most part of my life and I know of places that offer exotic cuisine that are delicious and yet affordable. I also have studied in Queensland Australia and visited my relatives in Sydney and have tasted their food too which is highly diverse.
