Young Married Couples First European Trip

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have been married 4 years, we're in our early twenties and we have finally found a way to save up and make the trip to Europe like we have always wanted. The only issue is that neither one of us have ever traveled out of the US, except for on cruises.

My husband works in building construction management and has a love for architecture, I however love nature. We want a mix of both of course. We do not necessarily want to go to large cities.

We have absolutely so idea where to begin planning or what kind of timing is appropriate. We know that we want to see any place in Ireland and Paris, my husband also mentioned WWII sights, but other than that we are open to anything. We will only have 14-16 days to take the trip due to his work.

I would love to hear about tips, ideas, others plans and any kinds of suggestions really. I have mapped out two routes already but I have no clue whether they are good, bad or indifferent.

The frist route I mapped:
Dublin, Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, Milan, Zurich, Paris
I figured these were all major cities and would have something for us to see.

The second route I mapped (that I'm much more excited about):
Cong, Ireland; Bibury, Englang; Paris, France; Gruyeres, Switzerland; Bled, Slovenia; Hallstatt, Austria; Tellaro, Italy
These are all smaller towns, with more local cultures and scenery.


Please help us figure out our first major travel experience!!
