Trip Report 16 Countries in 30 days

Jump to last reply

Three of us are doing 16 European countries in 30 days. Yes, that is a padded number. We are counting Iceland that will be little more than an airport wait. We also are spending only a couple hours in Sweden and Germany. And, we are counting the little countries of Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City, the last two, of course, contained within the boundaries of Italy.

We have been to Europe many times and have done similar marathon trips, but we also have taken longer stays in such places as hill towns in Tuscany where we lived like locals for a week or more at a time. Some of our most memorable trips have included many planes, trains and automobiles.

A whirlwind trip to Europe is not for everyone. But, sometimes it can be an excellent way to get a good mental picture of many areas in a short period of time. The European Union is less than half the size of the US, so, in some ways, this is like visiting a bunch of East coast states in a month. Not as daunting as it may sound.

Our trip is well organized and will include miles of daily walking. It will be relatively affordable, yet comfortable, since we are mostly staying at airbnb apartments.

You can see a blog we have created for this trip that will cover the month of October 2015.
