I will be a new mom in about a month, and I'm already dreaming about a European vacation with my husband and 5 month old child. I want to take this vacation before I introduce solids to my baby (before he/ she turns 6 months old) so that it's much easier to travel. I will be flying from Mumbai, India and wish not to spend more than 9-10 hours on a flight with the infant. My husband and I are huge fans of the countryside and want to do a quintessential European road trip. We have already been to UK (England + Scotland), Bavaria (Munich/ Garmisch P/ Mittenwald), Austria, Rep of Ireland and Italy (Tuscany).
Below is the tentative plan I've made:
Hire a rental car in Prague
28, 29, 30 July- Stay in Cesky Krumlov
31 July, 1 Aug, 2 Aug- Stay in Rothenburg ob der Tauber with day trip to Dinkelsbühl
3 Aug, 4 Aug, 5 Aug- Stay in Freiburg, with day trips to Black Forest and other towns like Gengenbach etc
6 Aug, 7 Aug, 8 Aug- Stay in Bacharach, with day trips to Eltz Castle/ Koblenz/ Cochem/ Beilstein etc (can choose any 2-3).
9 Aug, 10 Aug- Stay in Bamberg
11 Aug, 12 Aug, 13 Aug- Drop the rental car in Prague. Stay in Prague
14 Aug- Flight from Prague to Mumbai
What do you all think of this plan?
