I would appreciate any help with the logistics and suggestions regarding our itinerary below.
We are travelling from JFK-brussels roundtrip from aug 16-31. 2 adults 2 kids (8,13). The round trip is because of an amazing deal we got using miles. We have been to europe multiple times in the past and have seen netherlands, germany, paris, venice etc.,
My boys love the idea of venice (they havent been there) and my husband would like to drive col de turini or any of the mountain passes.
Is it too late in the season for lavender and sunflower fields?
We all love nature, small pretty villages and the outdoors.
