I feel like two weeks is too short time for an India trip.
I want to roam around by myself but let’s see.

Nice trip back home...

Depends on your stress level... Roam around the US might be my option

2 weeks is a bit short to go home. Could do some travel in the US. Or think about central America. Close by, cheap and a completely different experience from traveling within the country. I've been to most countries in the region and really enjoyed them. Could do at least 2 countries in that time.

I’m planning a destination wedding in Europe, and I’m assuming the guests who join us will likely stay for a week + and make a vacation out of it. With that in mind, is the week of Memorial Day a great choice since people will have the additional day off, or rude since people might have other plans? I’m leaning towards the former but would love some input!
