Myself and two friends are planning a 10 day trip to Europe at the end of April. One of my friends has relatives a half hour outside of Amsterdam so we plan to spend some time there. This friends has never been to Europe and really wants to see London, so that is a must on the itinerary. However, the rest of the trip is open. That being said, we don't want to overdue it going from one destination to the next. I'm curious which places people suggest. In college I studied abroad in Madrid and would love to go back. I know it's only a couple hours flight from London. Obviously, we could do Paris via the chunnel (sp?). I assume Scottland/Ireland would be choices as well. Also, would it make most sense to fly in and out of the same place, ie. London? Should we fly while in Europe or rely on eurorail? Thanks very much. All suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

all over the place here ;)
2 weeks pic one or two countries and enjoy ur self. Holand and London are two great spots for a 10 day holiday. U will never make it to Holland -> London -> Scotland -> Ireland

and Paris and madrid are greta cities but u should really pick just 2.

In 10 days you could barely cover all of London and Amsterdam.

yes, europe is small, but not that small and the fact that it's only a 3 hour flight, doesn't mean you're there in 3 hours, don't forget about the time to travel to the airport, the waiting, the possible delays, the flight, the traveling from airport to the city. (for example, some airport of london, are 1,5 to 2 houres outside the city centre)

Begin in amsterdam, cross the channel and go to london, go to edinburgh or so and fly back from london.

or perhaps, amsterdam, london, paris.

and you're saying you don't want to spend all of your time in a train or so, don't take a eurorail. It's easier and perhaps even cheaper to just by a single train ticket.
