We are open for most activities. We love Jazz, food, sports, wine tours, spas and being pampered.

You don't say how long you will be in each locale, but have you considered extending your time in London, Paris, Rome and/or Amsterdam? There is so much to see and do in these cities that it is impossible to spend too much time in any of them. My suggestion would be to add two days each to London and Paris, allowing you to do a couple of day trips, and one day to either Rome or Amsterdam.

Another suggestion would be to go to Bruges and/or Brussels. They are close enough to Amsterdam that you could easily return there for your flight home, if that is necessary.

We have 5 days in London, 9 days in Amsterdam, 3 days in Berlin, 3 days in Paris, 3 days in Rome, 5 days in Galicia with family members and friends, 5 days in Porto. I do not know if my reservations can be changed. In some Airbnb you cannot change your reservations.

How have you managed overall logistics?

Start in Rome
Fly to Berlin
Train to Amsterdam, Paris, London
Fly to Porto
Train to Galicia
Fly out of Santiago de Compostela

Belgium would be an obvious addition.
Brugge, Gent, Antwerp, Brussels

I think I read that Haarlem is have a 5K or 10K, since we love sports maybe that would be ideal. Also we can take a train to Burges. Do you have any suggestions on where to eat in Haarlem and/or Burges?

Hi,

Fantastic doing a trip the first time for over a month. I would recommend that too. How do plan on getting from place to place...train, bus, the flying option, rental car? Where are you staying in Berlin and for how long?

We are taking a plane to Amsterdam from London, Then to Berlin by air staying at the park Plaza Wallstreet Berlin Mitte, then back to Amsterdam air, then train to Paris, air to Rome, car to Porto, Air to Amsterdam. I know we are going to Amsterdam 3 time but we have our new grandbaby there and we need to spend as much time as we can allowing for her parents schedules. We will be staying in Berlin for 3 days.

Thank you for your suggestions. I will look into the places you gave me. I want to enjoy my stay and meet some people that I thought I would never get a chance to meet.

Mary - I would recommend the train .... I always use public transport in Europe (trains, buses, trams, etc.) I also do a ton of walking. You will love Bruges - be sure to take a canal boat trip.

First day of Spring is as big of holiday in Scandinavia as any holiday in Europe. If you can, it would be an experience to be in Scandinavia for those days. I'd suggest Copenhagen.
