Default Super euro adventure itinerary, please critique

Hello T-Punkers, I have finally finallized my Itinerary and would like to get some feedback from you experts. If you see anything f***** up or would like to suggest anything, please do. Here we go, I would leave the 16 august, and return the 4th of September.

Flying out of Montreal;
London: 3 nights cheap flight to;
Belfast: 2 nights train ride to;
Dublin: 3 nights cheap flight to;
Barcelona: 3 nights cheap flight to;
Amsterdam: 3 nights train ride to;
Brugge, Belgium: 2 nights train ride to;
Paris: 1 night (because i detest Paris and Parisians... bunch of assholes, i'm only using the city for CDG airport) AND BACK HOME to Montreal.


How is this itinerary? CRITIQUE NOW!


Thank you

I usually tell people they should take 3-5 nights in any major city, and you're skirting the minimum, plus time used for transit... I would personally cut out a city or two and extend your time in a couple of the cities you'd find more interesting.

I agree with Omid both on the city count and the time per city. I would clip Belfast (unless you have another reason to see that such as family/friends there). So you could do something like this...

London: 4 nights cheap flight to;
Dublin: 3 nights cheap flight to;
Barcelona: 4 nights cheap flight to;
Amsterdam: 3 nights train ride to;
Brugge, Belgium: 2 nights train ride to Paris and out;

The only thing I see "wrong" with the itinerary it is doesn't allow for much of natural Europe. If you are inclined to get some scenery try something like this

London: 4 nights cheap flight to;
Dublin: 3 nights train to;
Western Ireland (anywhere from Killarney to Killary) 3 nights cheap flight to;
Barcelona: 4 nights cheap flight to Brussels, train to;
Brugge, Belgium: 2 nights train ride to Paris and out;

I like to break up the big cities a little with either nature, or at least a smaller city. FWIW, I stayed at Oliver St Johns Hostel in Temple Bar Dublin and it was okay. Avalon house was well regarded but smelled like a lockeroom.

Agreed, Dublin is turning into any other European city if you want to see Ireland get out wesht. You can get cheap flights to the UK from any of the bigger Irish airports, Dublin, Knock, Shannon and Cork. All Irish airlines fly to the UK for €1 - €10 not including taxes.
