I do this almost every summer now.

My best advice is pick a few places to go and spend a decent amount of time there. How long do you plan on being there?

There is no point in spending a bunch of time traveling and not actually enjoying your time.

The great thing about Europe is everything is so close. It is fairly inexpensive to hop on a plane and fly from city to city.

Usually I will fly into London and hop on a train and go directly to Paris. (London is pretty expensive place and do not like spending a lot of time there.However, if you've never been there. I suggest spending some time there).

I'll then fly from Paris to Barcelona and then either ferry or fly to Ibiza. From Ibiza, I'll fly to Amsterdam and then from there fly to London. Spenda few days in London and then fly back to the states.

It's only gonna be a 10 day trip, we plan to just do 3 cities

Fly to Paris, train to Amsterdam, fly to Italy. then fly back to Paris
we plan on spending 2 nights in Amsterdam, 2 days in Italy

I really wanted to try to go to London but we will not have time anyways. Gonna have to save that for another trip, plus you said it gets real expensive there? Did you usually travel with one other person? or alone

thanks

I traveled with one other person the last time. This summer I am going with two others.

The train to Amsterdam will be super easy and fast. I've down that before from Paris.

Where about in Italy are you headed to? I have yet to spend any significant time there. Spain might be a better option as suggested above.

It sounds like you have a pretty decent plan set up.

Barcelona, no question. Especially if you're flying out there soon. Barcelona is more modern, more cosmopolitan, on the water, better weather this time ofyear, much livelier (nightlife is great), I could go on and on.

We plan to go to Venice, Italy and stay there for 2 days before we go back to Paris and head back to the states.
so far I have that we train to Amsterdam from paris, fly to Venice, fly from Venice to Paris. then back to the states

Idk, it still is pretty surreal that I'm going but I can't wait till the date approaches. it's my first time in Europe. going with one other person

I co-sign this. I got bored in Madrid in a matter of a few days. Barcelona was a much better stay.

Besides the herb in Amsterdam, what else do you plan on seeing? Would it be a good place to go with your parents/family?

Thanks. Hopefully it all goes to plan, if it does i'll most likely be going over with my madre lol.. so yeah can't get up to anymischief, but doesn't mean I can't enjoy the other things Europe has to offer.

I was coming to make this thread a few days back

I'm going with three friends this summer. First we're flying to Bremen and then using the trains. our "plan" isBremen->Amsterdam->Paris->Barcelona->Southern France->Rome->Venice and then back to Bremen. We have 22 days to do this and it might be alittle ambitious but we'll see. We're going to sleep in hostels.

I appreciate any kind of tips.
