I've posted quite a few times about a ten day travel plan I have. Originally I had a plan to the south of France. Then I changed it to Amsterdam and Krakow to visit WWII sites then to Paris for a few days to see a friend. However, after weighing my options and calculating costs this isn't realistic. The thing I love about Rick Steve's is that he encourages travelers to see beyond the big cities enjoy all of Europe. I've decided to go with my original idea and go to the South of France, and go beyond just seeing metropolitan areas and do a little back door travel and enjoy some non metropolitan Europe! In fact one of the best places I've been was to one of the hill towns of Central Italy. It was so nice and relaxing! He's my plan and as always advice and alternative suggestions are appreciated! Thank you!
