Trip Report A month in Europe: a live trip report

Jump to last reply

This is my third trip to Europe. After the first two trips, I attempted a trip report. The first one I finished, but it was six months after the trip, and I felt like it was missing something. Last year’s trip I didn’t even finish.

So, I am going to try to do this as I go, hoping that this will add some freshness to it. I can’t promise daily updates, but I plan to post pretty regularly. There should also be some pictures along the way (not in the thread itself of course, but links)

In deciding whether or not you want to follow along at home, a few specifics:

Where: Amsterdam, Berlin, Brugge, Cologne, Munich, Paris, Vienna (not necessarily in that order :) )

When: That would be now. :) Total trip length including transit to/from Europe - 33 days

Sightseeing priorities: Art (pre-20th century), Historical sights - Basically I will probably hit most of the big tourist spots in the places I am going, with hopefully the occasional alternate activity mixed in.

Day trips planned: Dachau, Potsdam, Versailles, Keukof Gardens, Ghent, Antwerp (or Ypres), Brussels, Salzburg, Rhine

Cultural Performances booked: Vienna Philharmonic, Concert in Sainte Chapelle, Netherlands Opera (Don Giovanni) , Spanish Riding School

What you will not hear much about: Fine dining, wine, modern art, sitting in cafes watching the world go by.

Prologue: As mentioned above, this is my third trip to Europe. The first was to London (two weeks), and the second was to Italy (three weeks). I enjoyed both trips, but... at that rate, I was going to run out of life long before I got to see everything I wanted. So, I came up with a more ambitious plan. One month covering 7 cities in 5 countries (not counting day trips).

Anyway, as I write this, I am at the airport waiting for my flight, so I think I will go pass through security now. Afterwards maybe a few details about the planning process while I wait for my boarding call.
