Feedback on this 2+ Week Trip Through Central Europe

Jump to last reply

So this may seem a little scattered but I was curious how the general feel of this trip seems to others.

Who: We are a couple 23-25 yr old who love active traveling. We are very much into walking/biking tours, arts, museums, food and wine (I'm a sommelier!), history, nature and meeting people. We are looking for a trip that will keep us busy with a couple of days mixed into just chill and regroup as we acknowledge are necessary

What: 16 days starting in Paris ending in Copenhagen (These are the best discount flight options to and from Boston via WowAirlines)

When: April 26 - May 12

How: Mostly via hostels, the occasional couchsurfing adventure, and perhaps one splurge night in a cheaper city for a hotel. We are looking to stay around under 100/day for food, fun and hostel accomodations (so yes cheap as we can while still getting a good glimpse)

Why: Because we LOVE Europe and have never left the country together. We each studied in Europe while in college (Her: St. Petersburg Myself: Florence) We both really loved Prague and Eastern European places quite a bit and she's never seen Paris

The layout:
April 26: Leave Boston for Paris
April 27-28-29: Paris
April 30-May 1: Loire Valley (Hopefully renting a car one of the days for a vineyard or two)
May 2: Return to Paris in the am to fly to Bratislava
May 2-3: Bratislava
May 4: Train to Krakow
May 4-5-6: Krakow (Overnight train to Budapest?)
May 7-8-9: Budapest
May 10-12 Copenhagen
May 12 Night flight back to Boston

I know the Bratislava - Krakow - Budpaest is a bit of backtracking. The thing is I can only find Budapest as a legitimate and cheap way to get back to Copenhagen for our flight home (and to discover a bit of Copenhagen) I know Bratislava is very close to Budapest relatively speaking but I'm sort of confused as to what move to make. I think overnight trains back and forth to and from Krakow may be weird. But we are young and don't mind a few rough nights. We are definitely looking for advice and recommendations. We greatly appreciate it and are SUPER excited to be taking this adventure. Thanks in advance for your help and to everyone who has ever posted trip reports, itineraries or helped previously. You are what makes this place so special!
