Flash Through Western Europe: Fun, Family, and Friends

Two months ago, Tim and I wrapped up our Latin Amer­ica leg of the jour­ney and set off to con­quer West­ern Europe in what was to be a lovely three week jaunt through some of the major cities between Madrid and Berlin before head­ing to our planned des­ti­na­tion of Greece.  We met loads of peo­ple, caught up with fam­ily and friends, and most of all, got to expe­ri­ence the ubiq­ui­tous “Eurotrip” in high sea­son summer.

Flights and accom­mo­da­tion, as we found out, can be much more expen­sive than it needs to be if not planned in advance. So, as much as pos­si­ble we came up with an itin­er­ary and travel route:


Madrid (2 nights) -> Paris (5 nights) -> Bel­gium (3 nights) -> Ams­ter­dam (4 nights) -> Berlin (2 nights)
