Two moms, two daughters--planning our trip!

Jump to last reply

A recent chance meeting between a dear friend (who also has a daughter who is the same age that is infatuated with history) has determined a great change of course for my daughter and I. My girl and I now are planning on having traveling companions! We are looking at next May 2016 after each of the girls finish their spring semesters in college. We are trying to determine a rough outline for now, with much more discussion this summer. One daughter really wants to see Ireland and Scotland, the other England (York is a must see) and Scotland although they both realize that with two weeks, many compromises will need to be made and that we cannot see it all in one trip.

Our initial plan is: Fly into Shannon Airport, rent car, drive and see such sights as the Ring of Kerry, etc. drive to Dublin: 4 full days in Ireland

Fly to Manchester from Dublin Airport: train to York: 2 days

Drive up the coast and/or inland to see Northern England: 2 days

Head to Edinburgh: 4 days in Scotland
Fly out of Edinburgh

I have read so many talk about not trying to cram too much into your vacation/holiday, and I was hoping this plan does not do that. What do you all think?
