Hello, and thank you all very much for taking the time to respond to my questions.
To clarify, yes, we are spending 5 nights in London and 5 nights in Paris, it's the 5 nights in between that we are trying to decide on how to best spend our time.
I am intrigued by the idea of flying to Amsterdam and travelling south to Paris, that never crossed my mind. Thank you Chani! If you have suggestions for specific stops along the way, I'm all ears.
Bets and Marty, you are spot on with my initial thoughts, although if we take a night or two in the English country-side then I'd be hard pressed to not take up the offer from our friends to stay in Devon (for free!). It's a little further but i think we can still make stops in Windsor or Stonehenge or The Cotswold's along the way. That said, I wonder how often the weather effects crossing the Chanel in June??? Good point to consider there Marty. Thanks!
Marty, assuming you have spent time at the D-Day Museum and that vicinity, I'm curious, do you feel that it would hold the interests of two teenage girls?? I'm trying to keep their interests in mind, and don't know if this is geared more towards history buffs, or the general population. While I find the idea appealing, I am concerned my daughters will not. Have you traveled there with kids of any age?
Thanks again, I'm eager to dig in to the details on what to do in Bayeux, Honfleur and Giverny vs. the Amsterdam route.
