What kind of things are you looking to do? What interests you and your girlfriend? Sights? Architecture? Food? Partying?

I think the easy answer to that one is Italy. I had the opportunity to go back in high school. Absolutely beautiful place and you certainly can't beat the food.

I would recommend Spain. Stay in B&Bs and bring your camera. I'm in Madrid right now (Posuelo) after a day trip to Toledo. If you like taking travel photos Toledo will blow your mind. We were in Pamplona for 2 days (Mad town), but great spectacle. Afterwards we drove to Zarautz in the mountainous region bordering France and stayed in a B&B waaay up in the mountains and went down to the sandy beach with great waves for surfing and paraglyding (if you do those things, we don't). Drove down the coast to Santander (one of the best kept secrets in the world) where we stayed at Chiqui hotel on the boardwalk for approx EUR100. Think of it as a poor man's Montecarlo. If you like the night life I recommend Barcelona. You will NEVER forget it! Have fun!

The B&B in Zarauts cost about EUR70 (with a couple of extra cots for the kids). We did a home exchange with a family in Posuelo (college profesor) so we normally don't pay for lodging as we exhange homes and cars. This year we've been a bit more adventureous. Oh, the hotel in Pamplona (San Fermin Hotel) cost about 80-90 EUR. But that's for double rooms (kids). Our flights are really cheap (Ryan Air) so we basically spend our money on dining out, driving to various destinations. If you want more info you can PM me. Right now I'm off to bed

If you're outdoorsy/skiing types you can do a ski trip from lodge to lodge in the Swiss Alps for not too much $$$. When is your winter vacation?

Trust me, I worked at dunkin donuts with a kid years ago who had a gf studying abroad in france, he would go visit her once a month on a DD salary through this site. Its an excellent resource, all you have to do is show them the documentation they want and you get a huge break. I tell everyone (thats a student) about this site.
