Welp, after getting drilled on other forums with nonsense and frankly, horrible comments and negativity, i've decided to
hopefully catch some "adult" thoughts from this forum.
When i started my plan, like many first timers, i thought i could see a lot in 10 days. Especially after getting a report
from someone who did. They were older and enjoyed every minute of it so, why couldn't I?
My original plan was coming in to London, staying for 2 days, heading to Munich, then Venice, Rome in a day, then going to Paris and finishing up back in London. Of course, everyone convinced me that i need to save Italy for another trip. So i then chopped my trip down, taking Venice out of the mix. Not enough. Now, i've basically narrowed it down to just England, Munich and Paris.
Hopefully i can pull it off. Seemed like a pretty simple plan but then, my wife said she wanted to spend our only weekend in London. That made things a bit more difficult seeing we were flying in on a Tuesday. We can make it work but there would be a back and forth going to Paris in the end. We will be taking the train to Paris on a Sunday for our last stop so that's good, (no rush hour) but, we plan to do some stuff on a Tuesday so that will limit us a bit. But i think this plan may be a winner. Let me know your thoughts on this:
