    You're looking at either Europe or a pair of transcons. I'd look at what you can get via JFK for the p.s. service if you have a cert or two to spare.

    An IAD-FRA MR would get you 4,081EQM each way and get you to the promised 1K land with no sweat...

    So south america if you didn't want to weather the time change... but... you have to pick a country that can get you a fast visa (Not Brazil).

    I was in Buenos Aires in August: ~10K-12K EQM, depending on how you get there. Weather was great, visa was obtained in minutes upon arrival (with a US passport) for about $140 and it is good for 10 full years. Make sure to eat the steaks while there!
