    If i was you id plan and navigate it yourself, as most of the places listed on the link you put up are TBH not places id want to see [again], im from england and have traveled almost all of europe.

    It does depend alot on what you'd like to see, if you come to england london really isnt worth visiting unless you wana get lost in an over crowded city full of aragant people thats noisy and stinks of smog, there really is nothing to see there, apart from maybe the melinium wheel if you have $500 spare for a 20 minute trip on it! Youll get more pisssed off than enjoying london! Id go to bournemoth or brighton if you like the coast or the lake district if you like rolling hills, rivers and woodlands to explore.

    Never been to irland lol even though its the closest to me! But im told to avoid the north and visit the south, its the real irland.

    Europa id definatly do paris its a gorgeous city with the river and the ifful tower, nice restraunts, the people are nice and the food is exciting.

    I wouldnt bother with brussels unless you like another london lol! Id go up into rotterdam or straight to munchen/munic [cant remember which] it has the river rine and beautifull outdoor.

    Next stop would be italy, anywhere in italy is nice, go where its looks best for you, again city person outdoor person, coulture or archetecture.

    Switzerland is nice, again id avoid the big citys and see the real country, lakes, river, mountains.

    Spain, id avoid milan its another dirty city just in the middle of a desert! id also avoid the coast as its just torists and well... you can guess what thats gona be like, drunk people/fights and filth! Granada mountains or some sleepy little village inland so you get to see the real spain, Antquera is nice, laid back [i used to live in a village just outside].

    Maybe its just me as i cant stand noisy smelly dirts crowded citys, if i travel i like the outdoors and seeing the real country im visiting ;)

    I think I can think that I can think of a few books that could and should be burned, but don't think they might not think that they think it is either !

    You see it's all about balance... :p

    Umm... I wouldn't either... amsterdam sounds like such a better option...

    let the kids do their shopping on red light street, you enjoy the cofeeshop quietly...

    Did I say anything wrong ? :stir:

    if you're going on an organized trip like that you don't need suggestions, you won't have time for them.
    Just remember to try some GOOD beer in Belgium (damn you if you oder Miller someting lite...), get the lady into the right mood on your Rhine romantic thing, order champagne in Paris and take a LOT of pictures as you won't remember much of the whirlwind...

    Sorry, I'm not a big fan of those trips...

    This thread reminded me of one of my favorite movies Eurotrip, don't mess with the robomen there...

    [YOUTUBE]4aMD4uy-QGc[/YOUTUBE]

    I did quite a bit a travel in my late teens - early twenties (am 26 now) from Hawaii and Mexico to Indochina and India to parts of the Middle East but I've never done the Europe thing. I did go to England for a couple weeks to visit some friends in York and Newcastle but that was the extent of it. The packaged trips are probably best and safest for travelling with kids but I'm used to doing these sorts of things on a shoestring budget. If you think of it please post some pics when you're back I'd love to see them. An old friend of mine called me up the other day and was asking if I'd like to go on a trip with him some time next year, maybe it's time to do something like this.
