Barcelona, Ibiza, Amsterdam and Berlin-Too much?

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am a 32 year old female heading to Spain with a good girlfriend the last two weeks of July 2012. Barcelona and Ibiza are a must for us and we are considering both Berlin (I hear Mette is a good place to stay) and Amsterdam.

Neither of us have been to any of these countries so we have a lot to see. We love nightlife (bars, dancing, lounges) Shopping (farmers markets, fashion, food, souvenirs) but also want to experience culture (museums, neighborhoods, historic monuments) and love meeting new people. Is our itinerary too ambitious? Should we take out one country? I know both Amsterdam and Berlin have great nightlife and culture. Money is a factor but seems as though one country is not too much more expensive than the other. We want to end our trip in Ibiza since we may not want to travel after Ibiza's nightlife.

Proposed Itinerary:
LAX-Amsterdam-3 nights in Amsterdam
Amsterdam-Berlin-3 nights in Berlin
Berlin-Barcelona-3 nights in Barcelona
Barcelona-Ibiza-3 nights in Ibiza (We plan to rent mopeds-good idea?)
Ibiza-Barcelona-LAX

I have looked into both EasyJet and RyanAir, both seem fairly inexpensive however I don’t have experience with either. Reviews show EasyJet to be ok, just to watch out for luggage size and to have ticket stamped prior to boarding. It looks like we can get airfare from Amsterdam-Berlin-Barcelona for less than $150US. I found a flight from LAX-Amsterdam Barcelona-LAX for a decent price, but still shopping around.

Housing will be next but need to get a plan first!

Thanks in advance for any input!
