How can I do everything????

Jump to last reply

My husband has an educational meeting to attend in Amsterdam May 15th-19, 2016, however, he thinks he can duck out on the 17th or 18th. We were able to book a companion ticket on BA, but couldn't travel directly to Amsterdam on the 14th, so we are traveling to Paris on the 10th and will train up to Amsterdam on the 14th. Not enough time in Paris, but we've been a couple of times before, so we are just going to take it easy.Our flight back is June 2 out of Nice.

Here's my wish list. Loire Valley for 3-4 day, Dordogne 3-4 days, and then Nice. We will have 13 days after Amsterdam. The difficult part of my wish list is attending the Saturday market in Sarlat. Although we love trains, I am thinking about using planes to maximize time.

Is it crazy to fly from Amsterdam to Bordeaux, rent a car and drive to Sarlat on Friday the 19th for the Saturday market and spend 3 days in the Dordogne, then, to somehow go up to Amboise for 3-4 days. Not sure the fastest way…drive, train, fly (is that even possible?).? Then fly from Nantes to Nice for the last 3-4 days?

It's a lot of territory and if I hadn't had to think quick while on the phone to BA, I would have flown back from Bordeaux, but it's not possible to change now. I know we can't do a great job of seeing even a portion of each of these areas, but it might be a good introduction. We are interested in the chateaus (I have a pretty good idea which ones and their location), wine tasting, markets, gardens, canoeing and maybe some light biking.

Is this plan just a big mess? Any suggestions?
