Traveling to Amsterdam and anywhere else for 3 weeks... Any suggestions?

Jump to last reply

Hello to all you world travelers out there, I have an upcoming trip to Amsterdam next week, and will be there until the first week of November. I've been planning on visiting Amsterdam since last summer because I have a friend who moved there because of work, so he's always invited me, and now I'm finally going. Since I'll be staying in his apartment in Amsterdam, I plan on dropping off my bags and doing some traveling while over there. Thought about taking the eurorail to London and Paris for a few days, maybe 2-3 days in each city, but where else? Does Berlin sound like a good idea too, or would anyone suggest traveling throughout England and/or France instead? I have been to London and Paris in November of 2010, but only for about 8 days, and I must say the travel from London to Paris seemed extra long because of the delayed train, so this time around I really just want to enjoy myself and take it all in. I was a little tired from traveling the last time, and didn't get to do and see a ton, but I still saw some. So this time I'll have more time to see it all.

I would prefer to go to a few places and have a good time sightseeing, as opposed to going to a lot of places and only spending a very small amount of time there. I don't care about adding a ton of stamps to my passport, if I can't enjoy myself its sort of like I wasn't even there. But if a place is nearby I'd love to see it.

I have to mention one last thing: me and my friend will be mostly hanging out my first week in Amsterdam, he'll show me all around, and we're going to see Chaka Khan on Friday, so from Monday, Oct. 22, 2012 until November 2nd I'll be free to go and see any and everywhere else. I'm a female, in my 20s from NYC, so I love big cities and stuff like that. I studied abroad in Greece while in college, so I am not new to international traveling, and am always careful and mindful of my surroundings so no need to worry. With all this in mind I would love to hear some of your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks a bunch!
