We're leaving in 10 days for 30 days living and working in Cambridge, UK. So excited! This trip has come about suddenly as my husband's company asked if he'd be willing to go. We plan to spend wknds exploring England/Scotland and then will have 16 days after for a driving trip before we leave from London back home to San Diego.
We're thinking we'd like to take the chunnel over to the continent and then design a driving itinerary that takes us through Belgium & Netherlands with a 3 day stop in Aarhus, Denmark to visit Danish friends. (Husband was an exchange student there!) I'd love any suggestions for how you might do a round-trip of this nature. (Back to London.) Possibly a stop in Paris? (Love to brush up my French. I was an exchange student there 20 years ago.) Back through the Rhine? Haven't spent any time in these countries.
Normally, I'd book a trip like this 9 momths ahead and have B&B reservations, but due to my rush to get organized to just get to the UK so quickly, I'm wondering if we'd have trouble without advance reservations for the first two weeks of October.
Suggestions, stops or places to stay eagerly welcomed!
Thanks so much,
