Please help a Europe newbie

Jump to last reply

Our first trip to Europe (Germany and a bit of Italy and Austria) was four years ago on our 25th anniversary. I am excited to begin planning trip number two for the 30th anniversary Summer 2014.

One of my first decisions is to try to decide what would be the best month to travel in. Our last trip was late June which was rainy and cloudy. I have no idea if that was typcial? We would certainly like to have sunshine this time around.

Airfare has also DOUBLED since our last trip. Are there certain times of year that I may be able to find a better deal? We are not interested in winter travel but don't need summer swimming weather. We have some flexibilty.

We want to go everywhere, which is of course impossible, but are exploring the idea of Italy, Solvenia, Croatia area.

Thank you very much for any help you can give me in how to start planning!
