Family Trip in July - General Guidance Would be Appreciated

Jump to last reply

Planning our first trip overseas and I'm suffering from a case of "don't know when we'll be back - must cram it in"- itis.

We are a family of 4 - two daughters ages 12 and 15. We arrive in London on July 9th and depart on the 25th. My father lives 2 hours northeast of London and will be loaning us a vehicle to use the duration our our trip. This is the reason we opted to fly in/out of London. Must return vehicle!

I'm usually planning so far in advance that I'm able to relax for several months before departure. This school year has flown by and as of right now, we have ZERO accommodations booked. Yikes!

Our general thoughts are to relax with my father in the Norfolk area for a couple of days (through July 11th?) when we will return to London for a 4 night stay. We should have 4 full(ish) days to explore the sights. On the 15th we plan to depart for Brussels. This will be a long 4 hour trek - but keep in mind that living in Texas we are used to long drives. We plan on staying in Brussels for 5 nights and would like to day-trip to Bruges (1 hr drive?) and to Amsterdam (2 hours away?) before we leave for Paris (3 hours). We plan on staying in Paris 3 nights before returning to London for our departure.

While I'm not a fan of packing and moving too often, does a day trip to Amsterdam seem too short silly? I know there is much to see and do but would it make more sense to delete that portion of the trip and spend more time in Paris. Or pick up and stay in Amsterdam for at least 1 night to take in a bit more?

Side note - husband is a brew-hound. Exploring a brewery (or two) is top of the list. We have explored the option of leaving the girls in the UK with their grandfather to explore with him while we spend a weekend alone in Belgium exploring breweries but they put their pre/teenage feet down - they want to see it all!

At this point - I have nothing booked other than flights and a free vehicle. I've done my best to calculate fuel costs for car travel and compared it to rail travel - but I think the car is most economical. However, the speed of the train and relaxation factor are worth serious consideration. Thoughts?

Any input on any part of this would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
