Trying to figure out an itinerary.
I’ve got 14 days total for travel – including the flying in & out. We have decided on France, Germany and maybe Belgium. My hubby wants to see D-Day stuff in Normandy. We will fly into Paris and spend 2 days in Paris. My hubby has no desire to see any of the museums in Paris. He is not an art/sculpture guy. I’ve already been to Paris, so I won’t miss it. I was thinking 3 days in Normandy. (Is that enough?) Also, we plan on taking the train from Paris into Brussels for a day or two. And am wondering about taking a train from Paris into Germany. Looking at the Rick Steves Time & Cost map – Koln is a 3 hour ride from Paris, with Berlin another 5 hours. Are we better off going to Koln and then Berlin or going to Frankfurt? OH – we will be traveling with a small dog.
We will either go in March, May or October. I like the prices of the flights in March though but wonder if the weather would cooperate with us. If it’s just cold –like 40 or 50 degrees, that’s no biggy.
