I am going to be a freshman in college next year, and my school is on a quarter system, which gives us a great winter break (Before Thanksgiving>January 4). I have worked quite a bit this summer and been saving up my money, and I really want to do something fun with this extended break. After some brainstorming, I came up with an itinerary for a 3 week Europe trip that I really like. It would have me spending 3 days in Barcelona, 3 days in Florence, 4 days in Prague, 4 days in Amsterdam, 3 days in Copenhagen, and 4 days in Paris (with hopefully in each city at least one day where I could go out and see countryside/small towns/go off the beaten path). Obviously the first three weeks in December are not prime travel season in Europe, due to the weather, but I want to know if the weather is bad enough that it would make me have to postpone the trip at least a year (I don't think I would be able to go until summer '09). I am purposefully avoiding the UK/Scandinavia(sans Copenhagen), to avoid the really lousy weather, as well as southern Italy and the Mediterranean because I figure visiting there in the winter would just be a bit tepid, but how will the weather be in the cities I listed? Would the weather be decent enough that going now would be a fulfilling and fun trip, or should I really put it off until a summer where I can enjoy the sun?
Thanks for any input
