Help me choose a holiday...

DD will be 9 months in January and we will start TTC #2. Her grandparents have agreed to take her so DH and I can have a holiday. I can't leave it later because I have horrendous pregnancies and bf so we haven't been away for 2 years and won't go again until DC 2 is at least a year.

We are thinking:
Paris - never been, Eurostar is easy but the weather will be rubbish
New York - ditto the above but with a long haul flight
Madeira - less of a city break, warmish weather but might not be much to do

I'm thinking malarial areas are a bad idea given I might be just pregnant because I don't know the tablets are safe. I don't think I want to do Muslim countries because of the hassle of haggling and street vendors.*

*disclaimer, I've travelled extensively in the Middle East but just don't fancy the culture this time.

Budget is up to £2k. I think I want to go somewhere I can relax and be me, not a Mum, or a tourist target. Please give me some inspiration

What about somewhere like Barcelona or Lisbon?

There may be Muslims in any of those countries. It is so wearing being forced to haggle with the street vendors.

New York! Not contest! Not somewhere you can do with toddlers.

New York in January is not nice; I wouldn't take a long haul flight there to participate in one of the many snow storms.
