sdn8 saidPlanning a trip for April or May. Where would you for your first trip to Europe?
I am leaning towards Germany, just because I am obsessed with their cars. But, heard great things about London also.
My friend Tim and I went to London, Rome and Paris last August. London was wonderful....really a "Disneyland" for adults. For guys in shape, it's perfect. We walked all over the place, and I felt like I was in a movie set the entire time. The public transit is wonderful, and it's beyond belief how much there is to do there (we saw "Billy Elliott" and "West Side Story" but also did the iconic tourist things...the London Eye, Tower of London, British Museum, a Proms Concert at Royal Albert Hall, etc).
If he can afford it, we are thinking about doing 5 nights in Munich and 5 nights in Barcelona this upcoming summer.....or a Berlin/Prague trip....in either case, we are thinking of renting a BMW and driving the authobahn....if in Munich, across the border to Innsbruck.(I've been to Munich before and it's great too...but not London).
But, as a first trip....London would be my advice.
