My husband just found out that he will be in Amersfoort for 10 days in July where he will be on business and I have decided on the spur-of-the-moment to join him. There will be a few days (2 weekends) that we can travel together, and would like full-day trip ideas using Amersfoort as our home base. There may be a few days he can split between work and sightseeing nearby, and there will be more days when he will be at work and I will be alone looking for something to do. I have never been to Europe and admit to being a bit daunted by striking out on my own. We will have a rental car, but I'm not sure how comfortable I would be driving alone. I would appreciate your suggestions of escorted day trips (good tours/operators) as well as independent travel - where to go, what to see, and (for me) how to get there and back safely & easily (driving vs. public transportation). We are interested in a broad range of sightseeing to appreciate the different aspects of the culture, scenic vistas, castles, museums, art, history, etc. Thanks in advance for your help!
