1 week in London, then 1 week.... ?

Jump to last reply

Next September (2015) we will be visiting family in London for one week. We would like to take an extra week (or 9 days) to see more of Europe, as I have never been. It's not a long time, but I would like to see more places rather than just 1 or 2, if possible.

I am interested in beautiful scenery, beaches, warm weather, wandering around towns and exploring food and culture, but less interested in museums. I've never really been very interested in exploring Paris for some reason, so maybe a day or so there is all I really need (if that).

Any recommendations for an itinerary? My dream place in Europe would be to go to Greece, but I think maybe it's pushing it to train/ferry from London to Greece in a week, and leave little time to see anything. But maybe I'm wrong also? It's hard to judge having never been there.

Maybe a better idea would be to go to Barcelona/Madrid/Lisbon and fly home from there?

Honestly any suggestions would be appreciated. I have a year to plan but don't know where to start.
