june 7th-july 12th. we think it might go something like this: arrive london, stay 4-5 days. paris 6 nights at least (maybe longer if we can't bear to leave). lyon for a coupla days. marseilles to skate for the mister & me to lay on nude beach (do i dare?!) & eat bouillabaise. train to venice for quickie evening/walk around/dinner. definitely budapest - very excited about this. possibly prague (but i'm getting not so excited the more i read - sounds overdone & touristy - am i wrong?). definitely berlin. then if we can squeak amsterdam & belgium in we'd really like too. we leave back out of london. depending on our schedules & what not we'd love to swing over to galway to see a friend, but i'm not sure if we'll make that. i should have booked us 8 weeks for our first time traipsing around europe, not 5 - whatever was i thinking?! (probably about the bank account)
the mister is callin' on unarrived passports today, tomorrow we figure out the very confusing choices for eurail, call the banks so they'll let us have our money while we are over there...do a faux packing so i know if i need to ditch some things. finalize shoe decision - for some reason this has been taking up an insane amount of debate for me...how many? which ones? are they comfortable enough? what if it rains? what if i get blisters? what if i want to go somewhere fancy? what if i just want to lace up some sneaks? what if what if what if...groan.
of course, suggestions are always welcome here! let us know if you have favorites & not to be missed places!
