      S-sorry. From northeast US. Budget is flexible but max of 5K would be a good starting point. I like SighSee things, history, sightseeing. I can (very poorly) speak French. Not into drinking drugs clubbing etc.

        ok that's better
        well if that volcano in iceland keeps going then it might disrupt flights so it might be better to save that for another time
        ireland would be an easy trip and you can get return flights to dublin from east coast usa for under $400 (depending on dates, obvs) but you'll be a bit jetlagged. you could also consider e.g. london or edinburgh
        if you fancy going into mainland europe then paris, madrid, berlin etc would all be doable
        in fact last time there was a major volcano in iceland it stopped all flights across europe for a few days so keep that in mind

          It's going to be several months before I can go, likely not until the end of summer-beginning of fall so I was hoping there wouldn't be any volcano action. I was considering mainland Europe but I'm not sure if that would be a good first trip for me. I've been to Germany before many years ago but with a large group. I think my second trip alone might be somewhere in mainland Europe. I just want to know that I can handle taking care of everything myself first before doing a bigger trip.

            ireland it is then
            dublin will keep you busy for a couple of days
            then get out of the city a bit and try e.g. kilkenny, wicklow, glendalough
            you could also go up north a bit and go to e.g. giants causeway
            ireland is only a couple of hundred miles side to side so you can go pretty much anywhere within a day
            if you can drive then so much the better, hire a car for a couple of days and do a loop from e.g. dublin to galway and back

        Go to ireland and tell everyone there about your irish roots and ask if they ever heard of your family name. Other than that rent a car and drive along the wild atlantic way, choose whatever starting and ending point, they are all nice. Don't bother with Inisheer, or other small island. Maybe the cliffs of moher form the sea is nice.

        Either Canada or Iceland. For your first solo trip you are going to discover a lot about yourself in how well suited you are to travel and how you react to situations.I always encourage people to visit a nearby country to their own on their first trip instead of jumping into the deep end.

        I think Quebec and the Eastern Provinces would be a cool solo trip.

        If you're from the Northeast, Canada would be maximum easy mode. I personally have no experience with Iceland. Ireland is probably your best bet. Easy enough to get around, and you don't need to worry about a language barrier. However, you're still far from home and need to do some planning, utilize public transportation, navigate an airport, etc. It'll teach you the ropes of travelling outside your country without throwing you in the deep end. It was my first solo trip out of the country, and I feel it was a good choice.

        Any of those are okay options, based on your interests as you said I'd imagine Iceland would be the way to go. My friend is from Alberta and used to live pretty close to Banff National Park and the Rockies and even he thought Iceland was fricking incredible. Hell every outdoors person I know who goes to Iceland is in love with the country, even if the cost kinda sucks. 5K for a week should be very doable.

    Are you a complete fricking moron? These are some of the worst places in the world to "travel" to.

      Go to Ireland but rent a car and leave Dublin after a few days or you will get bored like I did.

      Montreal is very meh. Doesn't really feel like you've left America. Just feels like a bunch of people LARPing as french.

      Iceland, I can't bring myself to go there. It's dead last on my bucket last. It might be higher if I ever watch game of thrones.

      ireland sucks man
      t. from here

      i can tell you are a horrible person, since you want to go to ireland

    Did you mean to type Prague, Rome or Amsterdam? Because that would make more sense.

    If I'm getting on a plane I need to be going somewhere for 2 weeks at a bare minimum. The thought of flying to Europe for a 1 week holiday is insane to me.

    Canada is expensive and boring, every time I've went around this country I've regretted it. Go to Spain or something, over Ireland. But I don't know if it's worth going on a long flight for a one week trip

      Toronto would be good for a week. See downtown, Niagara Falls, Toronto Island for a day, and then your pick of sports, art, music, etc. I went for a friend’s wedding and thought I would hate it, but I had a great time. $5,000 should be enough if you can get a deal on the flight.

        Toronto Island is also great in the summer when OP is aiming to travel. I went during July and I loved it.
