My first post, although I've been reading all the good advice here for some time. Planning a trip next summer (family of 5). Spending 5 days in London, then train to Paris. Spending 5 days in Paris, then train to Amsterdam, spending 3 days there before flying home. I have an extra 2 days & I'm toying with flying with Iceland Air & doing a 2 day stopover in Iceland at the beginning of the trip. If not, I would add an additional day each in London and Paris.
Plotting out my days & noticed that I have us taking the train to Amsterdam on Bastille Day. Will this be a problem? Hoping to arrange a taxi to the train station through the hotel. Would like to take a early train but haven't got so far as to look at train schedules. Would traffic or closures be a problem with traveling out of Paris on Bastille Day? Thanks for any advice!
