I’m thinking I like this route a lot better then my other one!

Please look at my two trips I have posted and tell me which one you like better.

Again….I’m staying in Vienna for that long because I have family there, and I’m going to Weinheim, Germany because that is where my opa and oma grew up. It’s going to be cool meeting family that I have never met!

I am thinking about taking out Croatia though, leaving me time to do something else if I want. I know it’s suppose to be really nice there and I really want to go to the plitvice lakes, so maybe someone can let me know their opinion on Croatia.

Again please let me know which trip you like better. I also don’t mind suggestions on any stops I could make that fit into my route!

This trip’s a little bit better I think. I think it would be a mistake to cut out croatia, just as it’s a mistake to spend 6 days in Vienna — way too much time. I would also switch out Frankfurt for Munich and Milan for anywhere else.

well like I said i have an aunt, uncle, and 2 cousins that live in Vienna. It’s free to stay there and I don’t get to see them much. I probably won’t end up staying there that long but they will do day trips with me and stuff so it’s whatever

I do have Munich on this route so I’m not worried about Frankfort. I’m really only going to Frankfort as a starting point to start heading south in Germany.

and for Milan it is on there most likely for a change of schedule, it one place I can take out in case I spend more time somewhere, I have a feeling I’m going to stay in Switzerland for a little bit longer, I love being up in the mountains.

It’s all good.

Now your saying to keep Croatia, are the stops I have in Croatia good, or are there better ones? I know I would want to go to Dubrovnik and the plitvice lakes but are there any more places that i wouldn’t want to miss?

Split and Dubrovnik are the biggies. Personally, Dubrovnik’s my favorite.
