We took the Orient Express from London to Venice some 25 years ago (before the opening of the chunnel in 1994).  Things have changed since that time as you now stay in the same train as opposed to having to take a hovercraft from the English train to the Continental train.  The trip takes 2 days (one overnight on the train).  You can break the trip up into two parts by disembarking in Paris then catching a later train to Venice.  The scenery is spectacular, but you won't have time to do much sightseeing on your own during the trip.  When we went we stayed an additional 3 days in Venice. You can check out the Orient Express website: https://www.belmond.com/venice-simplon-orient-express.

When you visit New Mexico you will want to visit Tent Rocks it is about 20 miles south of Santa Fe on route 25. Of course Santa Fe is a must visit and Albuquerque is great also. Both cities are wonderful and enchanting. Old Town in ABQ is a favorite of mine, always something going on. There is a walking path beside the Rio Grande that is peaceful and serene. Don't miss the petroglyphs monument , an easy hike.  Sky city, Acoma is worth the trip. One of my best memories is Truth or Consequence a tiny southern town with wonderful hot springs. You can enjoy a massage and soak at a very reasonable price. In the northern section there is Georgia O'Keefe's Abiquiu and Chimayo is on the way. Bandalier National Park has a great full moon walk. You need to call for reservations. The park is worth a trip during the daytime to visit the kiva.

Russia was OK post Soviet Union and pre Putin. Don't waste your time or give them your money now.

Don't rule out Hawaii. While my wife and I have travelled to many great National Parks and resort areas on the mainland, we just returned from our 11th trip to Hawaii. It is truly a magical paradise.
