15 day European trip planning help.

Jump to last reply

I am deployed with the Army in Afghanistan and I am planning a trip to Europe for my girlfriend and I over my 15 day mid-tour leave. This will be our first trip to Europe. We'd like to see as much as possible without being too rushed. We aren't artsy so museums are not a must see. We like historical sites, shopping in markets/squares. We LOVE dining and wine.

We are going on vacation the first 2 weeks of May. I def want to hit London and Paris. I'd like to get to Edinburgh, Scotland with a day trip to Stirling to see the Wallace monument and Stirling castle and do some shopping. I was thinking about rounding out the rest of our time with a couple days in either Amsterdam or Bruges.

I have never travelled outside the US and all the info I am finding online is a tad bit intimidating. I look forward to some advice from the seasoned travelers here.


JB.
