Two Trips Can't Decide

Travel Forums Europe Two Trips Can't Decide

Hi my name is Katey I'm from Wales and I'm planning a 6 week trip for August/September and I'm very indecisive so I thought I'd ask the people of this forum if they could help me decide! I've come up with two trips, I've been some places in Europe before so I've picked a lot of places that I've never visited for these trips. I'd like to go on both of these trips and every time I think I'm favouring one I decide I like the other one best! I finally had enough and decided I'd ask for a second opinion, if anyone could offer any input it would be very helpful.

Brussels
Hamburg

girl, you plan too much :-)

I don't see the logic of either itinerary; but I'd say you take the latter one.

have fun travelling, take care,
Niels (Amsterdam)

I like the first trip better, it has more Germany in it. But then I'm biased...

Any particular reason you are going to Hannover? Expo has been over for 6 years. Brunswick (Braunschweig) or Goslar would make for a better one-day-stop. And I suppose Leipzig and Berlin might also be options.

If you are doing Route two, I suggest you go Stuttgart-Passau-Vienna or Stuttgart-Salzburg-Vienna.

Are you doing Eurail/Interrail?

Thank you both for the quick responses that's one vote for each. ;) I picked Hannover because I'm a history student and I thought visiting the old capitals of Hannover and Saxony might be interesting from a historical point of view. If Braunschweig would be a better one day stop that might be better though, is there much to see in Hannover now?

I was planning inter-railing it if it's the first trip, the second one I don't know if it would be worth it as Macedonia, Montenegro and Albania don't have extensive train services as far as I know, but that's a moot point now as I've already bought my inter-rail pass!

My experience is that going too many places can tire you out!! If you have lots of energy go for it. How are you traveling? Bus-train-car-auto?? Some friends of mine had an ambitious plan to bike from Zagreb to Dubrovnik, go to Hvar and ferry to the Italian coast. They wished they never planned that much and just spent more time in each place.

Let me know if you need some specific places to visit in Slovenia, Croatia and the ex-yugoslav countries. I am rooted here for quite a while and can get you excellent recommendations on where to say, what to see, where to get everything. No problem. I did the same you are doing!!!
