I am new to this forum and company(sorry :))
I have so many questions and need so much advice and direction, so maybe my first step will be putting it out there of what i would LOVE to do, but with the realization and direction from all of you and expertise advise, will see what I should do. I am a very optimistic person, but sometimes, a huge appetite with a small stomach. :)
My husband and I have two sons, 24 and 26, and the older has a girlfriend of 6 years, so my first thoughts it would be for all of us, but with finances and the amount of time to be off work, for sure the part including the wedding in Solingen Germany, to include the kids and girlfriend, which is the reason for going. We had a foreign exchange student who lived with us in 2012 and went to school in our small community, Caldwell, Kansas. He is getting married and that is where the wedding is on September 3rd.
So.... HERE are my thoughts, just need a lot of help :O!!!
* Would leave August 21, or 22 out of Wichita Kansas
* possible fly to another country to explore until 27 or 28th. (third wish)
*Would then go to Oberammergau Passion Play in Germany----(which is my second must) although I don't know how to get tickets or where to stay ( possible on 28th, and stay in that town a day or two)
* leave on the 30th to go back to Solingen where the wedding is held, which we would have somewhere to stay in Leverkusen Germany, then leave after the wedding on September 4th or 5th. (first must)
Was given Edinburgh Scotland as a Country to visit? When we went to visit German son before, we went to Rome for 5 days. We love the outdoors and would love a days hike in the most beautiful place ever :) Switzerland? New Zealand? So as you can see, I need SO much help where someone almost just puts an itinerary together for me. lol
We love to explore, castles, histories, just the adventure. I would love to have a day hike in the prettiest place ever !!!
So as you can see, I have a HUGE desire to live life to its fullest, specially vacations :)
I am the only one doing the leg work, so I need a lot of help!! So if anyone is able to help or guidance, would MUCH appreciate it and THANK YOU in advance. Or if you can direct me how to get this accomplished. I would love a one shop stop, lol, where I can buy tickets and reservations for everything,
Lost in mind of planning a vacation of a lifetime,
