GLH guessed the correct location. Readers may now guess. So, may the comments begin!
I will post the correct answer on Wednesday.
We are going somewhere...
...that has water sports for GLH and a fascinating history for me.
...that was once part of the Roman Empire.
...with a long religious history.
...that has been a popular tourist destination, especially among the Germans and Brits, since the 1950's. But most Amercians have never heard of it.
...known for its costume jewelry. Indeed, the costume jewelry is so well done it takes a professional to distinguish it from the real thing.
...that geologically is part of Africa. Although the island is in Europe.
...that has everything from beaches to sweeping plains to very steep mountains. It has been called the "Bread Basket" of its country.
