What would you cut from this itinerary?

Jump to last reply

So, I would like to go to Europe for 6 weeks beginning in May (2013). It will be my first time to Europe, though I have taken long train trips here in the U.S. so I know a little about how to budget time. For a 6 week trip I figured 6-8 cities would do. The problem is, which cities? So far I have a tentative itinerary below...

Reykjavik, Iceland 4 --would like to see landscape. Cheap to fly into.

U.K. 10 days -- will fly to Glasgow and leisurely travel to London. (at least 4 days in London)

Paris 5 -- Want to and figured it is a must.

Amsterdam 4 -- do some site seeing/exploring, then checkout the red light district last full day.

Berlin 3 - Don't really know why. Figured I needed to stop in Germany on my first trip.

Prague 4 - Looks beautiful, at least to me/ interested for other reasons.

Budapest 4 - Same reasons as Prague.

Vienna 3 - Flying out, moderately interested.

This adds up to 37 days. So I still have an extra 5 days. Where should I add? Where should I take away? I don't want to add another city. The list is already maxed out at 8 cities. Though, taking away one and adding another would be fine. The two that are easiest for me to give up are Berlin and Vienna. The ones that would be the hardest to scratch are the U.K., Paris, Iceland, then Budapest or Prague. Amsterdam isn't that important but it seems fun so I would like to visit. At the same time I would drop it for any of the previous 5.

So tell me why this is the worst idea ever and how I can make it better. I prefer long stays in places but getting back to Europe might take awhile so I want enough variety to quench the wanderlust.
