I was wondering if anyone could help me with some advice. We are trying to decide on a vacation destination for next summer (june 08). We are looking for a place similar to the Greek Isles which we loved visiting in 2001. It was charming & picturesque & just a great place to visit. We are in our upper 30's enjoy beaches, nice weather, exploring new places & a little night life. We will be flying to the Barcelona from the US. We were thinking about spending a few days in Barcelona before taking a flight to Gran Canaria. We had also thought about visiting the Balearic islands instead. Any advice? Also I read that since the Greece has become a lot more expensive to visit that the Canary Islands are the new hot spot for a good vacation value. Is this true? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
