    Jealous!
    I love Italy, but haven't done much and am always trying to get back there.
    I just got back from Europe yesterday actually, and am already missing it.

    Hee Hee.
    Went for 5 weeks.
    Croatia (to visit DH family), then to Barcelona for a week, back to Croatia. BIL had his 50th party there, then went to lake Bled in Slovenia for the Bled days festival. Back to Croatia for a few days, then stopped in Dubai for 3 nights to break up the trip home.
    Was a great trip.
    My sister met us in Barcelona and came back to Croatia with us. Had a heap of friends come to Croatia for the party. Our 2 ds were really well behaved and travelled well. Had a couple of nights kid free as the kids stated the night with grandparents.

    oh that sounds awesome

    How did you cope with 5 weeks?

    We went for 6 weeks last time and it was too long. is not quite 5 this time (and DD is that much older) so hopefully will be better.


    and now you have the 'post holiday blues' ???

    We were actually quite busy over the time, so the 5 weeks went really quickly.
    Our trip was broken up into hotels and family home stays, on and off over the weeks, so the kids coped pretty well. We would have an intense week, say in Barcelona, and then when we got back to Croatia, spent a few says at a family home.
    Our kids are 4.5 and 2.5. I think the on,y reason they travelled well was because we took it slowly, and if we couldn't one day, we tried to have an easy day the next. Lots of reading their cues.

    Geez, I thought I was done with Europe but this thread is making me a little sad. Where are you going in Switzerland? I did a heap of shopping there a ...ahem... few years ago.

    - Montreux
    -Wengen
    - Lucerne

    then to Italy
    - Bellagio
    - Sondrio (with DH's family - north east of Lake Como)
    - Florence
    - Perugia
    - Rome

    should be great.

    We are doing things fairly slowly - as you say, taking it easy some days if we have something major on the day before.

    Like Perugia - we have 3 nights there, but my only real goal is to go to Assisi 1 day ... so if we feel like exploring the other towns we can, if not we will just wander around Perugia and take it easy.

    We have 5 nights in Florence, so even though it will be busy with day trips to Pisa and Lucca, Sienna etc - we will have plenty of time (and for shopping )

    37 days to go
