One of my favorite actresses Audrey Hepburn once said “Paris is always a good idea.” I am taking it one step further to say “Europe is always a good idea“.
Last summer, Europe and I had a whirlwind love affair for one month and I savored Spain, was enraptured by England, and frolicked in France. I knew that my fling with the continent of Europe would not be a one-time thing and I vowed to return again in the near future.
That near future is this summer. I will return to Europe this time to explore 7 of its countries and to see, taste, hear, smell, and feel all that the continent has to offer. Bearing that all goes expected to my detailed plans, this is my Euro-trip itinerary for the summer of 2014:
Country #1 – The Netherlands

After flying into Brussels, the first stop on my journey will be to Amsterdam.
Amsterdam and I will have a brief three days together but I plan to make the most of it. I intend to take a couple of tours, bike around the city, take a boat down the canals, see some windmills, eat some cheese, and dance in some clogs. I also hope to get a bit off the beaten path, to venture outside of the city into the countryside, and to see some street art.
