So, my dear old dad (95) has decided he can no longer travel but insists my sister and I take the river boat cruise he did years ago so we can experience what he did. What could I say except, "heck YES!". He is also hoping we can go while he is alive and he can live vicariously through us on our trip and enjoy hearing about it. Due to Covid and our schedules it looks like the soonest we could travel would be in Oct 2021 (who knows what shape dad will be in then?) We would leave out of Budapest and end in Amsterdam.
I'm hoping for feedback about your thoughts on the weather at that time. Doing some research it looks like temps for the high go from the mid 50's to mid 70's. My sister and I really hate the cold but cool weather is fine. We can travel at anytime in 2022 but dad will then be even older, if he is even still around. With such an expensive trip we hope to find the ideal time.
What is your experience with October weather in Budapest to Amsterdam (lots of Germany)? Did it feel very cold or wet?
I know the weather varies so much, but I do appreciate hearing your thoughts!
