Europe Sojurn on Way to India - Paris..PLUS

Jump to last reply

We - Family of five, three kids -14-8 will go to visit family in India (BLR) this Summer (our 3rd trip in 6 years). We want to stop for 1 week in Europe this time. As usual Delta flyers we often route through Paris and oldest daughter would love to see Paris, and who doesn't......

Kids have seen little in Europe so everything is an option.

We'll only have a week so seems a shame to spend too much traveling. Husband wants Spain but I am saying that is too far off routing to India. He'd like Barcelona/Costa Brava or San Sebastian. I'm inclined to save that for another trip. I went to Netherlands alone a few years ago and would enjoy sharing some of that....and could work with routing.

I think Paris might make most sense but I am not sure if I want a full week in Urban setting. India will have that crazy urban chaos and so for the vacation - just our family part it would be nice to have some or our time in a smaller quiet place. But not sure if worth it. We also don't speak French so feel a bit wary of smaller French towns..... Spanish can get by in, no one speaks dutch.

Looking for ideas. Also we're deciding between routings in June and July. I understand June could be less busy and good be a bonus but July might work a bit better for us.... Is it worth it to push for June?

Thanks for any thoughts as we think through Summer.
