Itinerary: 3 wks: Budapest, Praguem, Normandy, Holland, Paris

Jump to last reply

I posted a few weeks ago about traveling alone in Budapest/Prague. Now the plane tickets have been purchased and I'm filling in the other major details of hotels, trains and cars. Only one hotel has been booked and I'd welcome any feedback folks may have on my hotel selections.

Trip dates: June 27 - July 15

Arrive first in Budapest around 10am.
hotel: Marco Polo Hostel www.marcopolohostel.com (likely staying in the dorm)
duration: 2 nights, 3 nearly full days: leaving on the night train at 8pm on the third day.
night train to Prague

Arrive in Prague at 4am (Hlavni nadrazi station)
hotel: Little Quarter Hostel www.littlequarter.com (single bed in 4-person dorm)
duration: 4 nights, which is really 3 full days, leaving on a 7am flight on the 4th day

Arrive Paris 9am and meet up with family to drive to Normandy. The next 4 days are filled with wedding activities (my cousin is getting married). Other than possibly finding some free time for a trip to the WWII cemetery, all details are already planned.

After the wedding, my parents and I will be driving back to Paris and catching the train to Amsterdam. From there we rent a car and drive to Friesland, where I lived as an exchange student 14 years ago. The next few days are also planned out. My parents head back to Paris to return home while I turn in the car and spend a few more days in Holland visiting friends. I may need a bed in Amsterdam for one night. I planned on finding a bed at Durty Nellie's (www.durtynellys.nl) which was my favorite place back when I was 18.

I take the train back to Paris. I intended just to spend one night and fly out, but realized I'd be leaving on Bastille Day. That seemed silly so I'm now spending 3 nights (2 full days) in Paris before I head home.
hotel: Royal Phare (found via www.bookings.com or www.venere.com) - I'm admittedly not excited about this place, but was enticed by the location for a low price. Basically $100 a night for a 10 minute walk to Eiffel Tower (positioning for Bastille Day festivities?)

All feedback welcome!
