O what a great gift! I would definitely make the most of the miles and go somewhere that is really expensive to fly normally, like you said – Australia, NZ, Thailand, Africa. You could also consider flying somewhere a little less expensive but upgrade to business or first class if that interests you.
Also keep in mind what airline it’s with. If it’s a member of the Star Alliance you will have so many options but each individual airline comes with it’s own restrictions. BUT something cool I just learned about is “stopovers.” So for instance, en route to, say Africa, you could stop over in a major hub in Europe (say, Switzerland) for a few days all on the same award ticket without incurring extra miles.

Oh wow, how nice for your guys! When we were planning our honeymoon we played this game many times. I still dream one day to be able to go to Fiji. Specifically, I wanted to stay in one of those bungalows with the stairs that go directly into the water?

I would go to Ireland or Iceland. 🙂 Or France. All 3, actually.

Italy is amazing….Rome is fantastic but Italy is also seriously expensive once you’re there.
I was lucky enough to live in France for a year and so would recommend that, go see the Moulin Rouge in Paris and get the train down to the south. You can travel between Montpellier, Nice, Cannes and Monaco very quickly and it’s cheap.
Thailand is great value for money once you’re there (no idea about airfares from the US though).
Would love to go to Africa but it’s soooo expensive!

DH canceled all of Asia. I wanted to go to Indonesia or Thailand. That ain’t happening now. But oh, I wish we could afford the Maldives, Seychelles or Madagascar. Oh wheeee!! A safari in Africa wouldn’t be half bad either. Take a look at Mrs. Hamster’s recaps 🙂

Australia! I was looking into cruises there, unfortunately they start and finish there and plane tickets are much too expensive, haha

Wow this is so awesome! I have always wanted to visit scotland or Ireland. Australia would be amazing too. Or Spain would be gorgeous…Heck, I would just go a bunch of different places even if it was for a day or two just to say you have been there.
