|From our last Europe trip (in Murano, Italy)|
We are flying into Paris, then immediately taking the train to Brussels, Belgium. There we are actually rendezvousing with Debbie's dad! We are going to let one of the most knowledgeable beer people out there show us around the country known for some of the best beer! We'll also be all over the Belgian chocolate...
Next we are taking the train to Heidelberg in Germany. We'll be renting a car while driving from central Germany south...down "Romantic Road" and through smaller historic towns along the way.
We plan on getting into Fussen, Germany (not far from Munich) where we'll use the city as a launching point for a day trip to Reutte, Austria.
Then we'll be heading to Munich for a day before taking the overnight train back to Paris... Originally we planned on driving into Zurich, but we have become more excited about Paris. All the staples of Paris are on the preliminary agenda...at first I didn't care to go up the Eiffel tower, but now...I'm excited!
Deb has been to Paris, Heidelberg, and Munich, but we'll be doing a lot of new things for her as well. Plus, I see her previous trips to Germany and France as ways for me to skip the "fluff" and get the cliff notes version of the cities.
SO...we're excited, the planning has begun, but one things for sure...there's a LOT to plan! Anyone have any advice, tips, or things we must do???
(FYI, we're such big fans of Rick Steves travel books, we've already purchased 3 for this trip!)
