Alright, I need advice. I can't decide whether to go on a vacation in October/November when I have three paid weeks off or go in February when I quit my job before moving back to the US. Any ideas for a country I could visit for 3 weeks in Oct/Nov? My grandpa keeps harping on Scotland, but I don't know wbout the weather. I was also thinking Vietnam, but don't know if 3 weeks would be enough....
Have any of you gone on great three week vacations? Any suggestions would be appreciated, except that I won't go to a beach resort like Club Med anywhere.

Thanks guys. This trip will be me solo (I need to find someone who I like to travel with who has the time and money to do so!) and no group tours (I like to set my own itinerary). I'll be doing the bus and hostel/B&B thing (I am not rich from my nursing salary
My gramps is Scottish (thus my last name being Fergusson) and he was mad that I didn't go there for my last vacation. I've always wanted to go, but I am not sure about the weather that time of year. I also thought of Ireland, but I think he would disown me if I went to Ireland and not Scottland! I don't have any real attachment to Vietnam, but I went to Thailand 2 years ago and found it amazing (not to mention that it's very safe for a solo female traveller) plus it would be warm. But it is a long country so I don't know if that would be enough time....
I don't think I am going to do the US because I am planning on moving there after my vacation, either to Washington, Oregon or California and I've been to Alaska (BEAUTIFUL!).... Plus your dollar would KILL me. I think the Canadian dollar is worth about 63 cents US.
