Where to next?

It's time for us to plan another trip.

I need another big thing to look forward to. Both of us want to go somewhere new, somewhere big, a Big Deal sort of a trip. No Canada or USA. It's gotta be someplace with a) a different language, or b) a long plane trip (or c, both).

So. Here are some ideas we've floated. We're thinking maybe January, after the holidays, when it's dreary and cold in Colorado and warm in other parts of the world. Among the places we've discussed are:

Mexico (adventure-travel, exploring ruins Mexico, not lounge-on-the-beach Mexico)
Peru/Bolivia
Egypt/Jordan/Israel
Australia or New Zealand
Someplace in Southeast Asia?

So, internet, tell me. Where should we go, to escape the January doldrums and add another notch to our belt?

(Places we have been together: China, Italy)

Mexico is fantastic and a lot cheaper to get to. Southeast Asia is fantastic and expensive to get to.

I'd go to Vietnam & Cambodia as they offer quite a lot of bang for your buck even if it's a bit more expensive to get to. Mexico is pretty cheap these days, though.

How about Turkey? Although, I just saw a House Hunter's International for Slovenia, so now i really want to go there!

Delurker here. Israel/Egypt/Jordan are all pretty cold and rainy (think LA in the winter) in the winter time, although flights to Israel from NYC are easy.

South of the Equator seems grand. I'd put my money on Peru since I've always wanted to see Machu Picchu.

ISRAEL! It's amazing, beautiful, and cheap. Also: HUMMUS. And you can get a non-stop from Newark to Tel Aviv.

Although I guess it lacks in the "warmth" department this time of year. Bummer.

Egypt!
If I could go anywhere right now it would be Croatia. Or Prague.
