I am planning my trip for next summer.
Each summer I got with my kids on
A 6 week European adventure.
We stay in gites or bed and breakfasts-
Usually rent a car and see as much as possible.

My travel style is to spend our time in one or two
Locations and really see everything we can instead of
Justing see the highlights. Last summer we went to France
And spend three weeks in the Dordogne and 4 weeks
In Provence.

Having said that I am thinking of breaking my own rule.
I am considering a trip to England Scotland and Belgium.
The way I am imagining it would be to fly into London and immediately
Take the train to belgium. If the prices are ok I would fly into Brussels and out of London
But I've started to look into that and it's costly. So I am going with the worst case scenario here. Spend approx 8 days seeing brussels, bruge, Ghent , then take the train back to London Pick up a car leaving London . My idea would be to see as many quaint villages in England and then head up to Scotland as far up as isle of Skye. So I am lacking am itinerary. What are the must see villages in England ... Oxford.. Etc and what are the must see areas in Scotland ..Edinburgh. I can spend approx 4 weeks on this portion of my trip- Then return the car and spend my last 4 days in London before flying home.
I would be grateful for any input -
