For some weeks Damir and I have been looking into a possible trip to Sarajevo and Dubrovnik for 2 weeks in September. However, we've decided now that for a variety of reasons the timing isn't great for this trip. So, we are thinking about splitting the two weeks into two smaller vacations: 1 week local (Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, the Cape, Fire Island, etc.) in the upcoming month or so and one week in the Caribbean later in the fall.
The problem is that neither of us has much experience traveling around these areas, so we're very open to suggestions. I've been to Nantucket once, years and years ago and loved it. If you have any suggestions about where to go, where to stay, etc. Please let me know!
I think both of us prefer to avoid super-touristy areas like Club Med type places. Ideally we'd love to rent out a small place with a kitchen and be close to the beaches. That's about our only preference!
Anyone? Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice?
