Three months in Europe

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm back with a (rough) updated itinerary. Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Background: daughter is planning a master's degree in Manchester, England, which coincides with the time that we're planning to sell our farm and take a year off while husband's health is reasonably good. I thought it would make sense for all three of us to fly over at the same time, and then once she's moved into her dorm, husband and I can take some time to travel at a more relaxed pace than what's been possible the last 30 years.

About us: We like photography, farmers' markets, country fairs, museums and (several of the) UNESCO World Heritage Sites. I'm an environmentalist and horseperson, so there is a nature/equestrian slant to some of these plans. We are not into cathedrals, gourmet food or expensive accommodations; we're very comfortable hosteling. Husband has some small mobility issues so we can't do a lot of hiking or steep climbing -- thus the slower pace for this trip.

We are also hoping to return to Europe when daughter graduates, so this is not a "one and only" trip. I have a small window of time where I can take a year off work before we relocate to our retirement location and I go back to work. Honestly, I'd love to retire in Europe, but husband is reluctant to make that big of a change just yet. I'll keep working on him. :-)

UNITED KINGDOM
Day 1: arrive in Manchester
6 days: Manchester, with day trips to York and maybe Blackpool Illuminations
Day 8: fly to Aberdeen and catch connecting flight to Shetland
12 days: Shetland (bird-watching, nature walks, photography)...side trips?
Day 21: fly to Glasgow and catch connecting flight to Berlin
Note: when we return for daughter's graduation, we're planning to devote more time to Scotland.

GERMANY

7 days: Berlin
Day 9: on to Munich (in time for Oktoberfest)

AUSTRIA

10 days: Salzburg, with side trips to Hallstatt and Mondsee
Day 11: on to Vienna
12 days: Vienna, with side trips to Graz, Bratislava and Wachau Valley (and as much time at the Spanish Riding School as they'll allow before kicking me out ;-) )
Day 25: on to London

UNITED KINGDOM
Day 1: arrive in London
8 days: London
Day 10: back to Manchester
8 days: Manchester (last chance to see daughter for several months)
