I am having such a hard time deciding on an itinerary for my upcoming trip. My boyfriend and I will be traveling late Dec/early January.
We are in our late 20's and really looking for a mix of culture, cute winter festivals and adorable towns, breweries and pubs (we love beer!), and some museums/art/history thrown in. That said, I typically travel at a fairly fast pace.
My general plan is:
Dec 29th - arrive Amsterdam in early AM
Dec 29th - Jan 1st - Amsterdam (I have been before, so I think 3 days is sufficient)
Jan 1st - Jan 3rd - Antwerp
Jan 3rd - Jan 5th (leave later in the day) - Ghent
---Planning to do a day trip to Bruges on the 4th
Jan 5th -7th Utrech (using as a base to fly home from the Amsterdam airport)
I am really struggling with the time spent in each town in Belgium - I want to make sure I get the full experience, and stay in charming/cozy places - but also have enough activities/sights to see so that we don't get bored!
