Help with solo 2 week Europe trip

Jump to last reply

Help! I'm so overwhelmed! I've never been outside North America and I just quit my job. So, I've decided to go to Europe for 2 weeks (I might stretch it to 2.5 but not sure). The good news is, I have a ton of Delta air miles, so my flight will be free. The bad news is that I can't nail down an itinerary. The only place that I know I want to go for sure is Paris. Other countries / places that appeal to me are Italy, Portugal (because I thought it would be fun to have some beach time, and I've heard the food is great and it's overall really good value for your money), Amsterdam, Brussels, and London.

About me ... I love big cities (I live in NYC) but I also love a really small town / village. I love food and think it'd be fun to take a cooking class or visit a vineyard (especially since I've read it's harvest season for the grapes), I love the beach which is why Portugal made the list, but I also know I could go to the South of France. I appreciate museums and things, but would much rather just wander and explore small little local things.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I would like to reserve my flight soon .... don't really need to figure out all the details yet, just need to figure out which airport I should use as my base. Thanks!
