I posted this once and then the post disappeared after I received one reply.
Our college age daughter leaves for Paris the end of this month to stay until June 1.
My husband and I want to visit her (and Europe :)) during a break she has April 22-26. We can take a maximum of 10-14 days away from work and need to be home by at least April 29.
Since we've been to Paris and Normandy before and she will have been in Paris for months, we wanted to visit some other region of France or country (Switzerland, Germany, Northern Italy maybe?).
Do you have any suggestions?
One idea is to fly into another city and start traveling toward Paris. We could buy DD a train ticket to meet us when we know more about her exact schedule and then travel with her continuing to Paris. Then we could fly home from Paris taking some of her winter items home to reduce what she has to bring home June 1.
Alternatively we could fly into and out of Paris, tour Paris some on our own while she finishes her classes and then take her in a big circle trip somewhere else.
What are your suggestions for itinerary, places to visit?
Do you have any suggestions for lower airfares? I cannot find airfare under $1400 pp using flexible days and airports either open jaw or rt Paris. We live in Wilmington NC (ILM) and RDU is 2 hours drive away.
Thanks in advance for your help. I usually like planning trips, but this seems extra difficult.
