Planning a Trip to Europe

16 03 2008

I’m planning a trip to Europe… I’d love some input from those that have “Been there. Done that.”  What do you think about the planned itinerary?  I obviously also have about 4 days that can be redistributed to break up the trip and allow me to spend longer in some places than others.

I also want to find something to help break up the trip on what is presently days 16, 17, 18.  Anyone have any ideas?  Please leave comments with ideas!
