Ok, i've changed this thing like 20 times, and I might change it 20 more so I thank you for taking a look. Based on my rail pass (10 days in 2 months in germany-Benelux, and 7 days in 2 weeks in the Czech Republic) and trying to avoid the potentially costly reserved trains (there is always a way around them depending on the route) take a look...
arrive in London, spend two days there and then:
Bruges 3 days
Brussels 4 days
Luxumbourg City 2 days
(clervaux 2 days?)
Frankfurt 3 days
Munich 4 days
Dresdan 2 days
Prague /cesky krumlov/2 other Czech cities 15 days
Berlin 4 days
Hamburg 4 days
Amsterdam 6 days
Haarlem 4 days
Brussels 2 days
London 2 days

Anythoughts, i realize once i get over there i will probably not follow this to a tee, but it's ncie to have an idea. Any input from anyone who's been to any of these cities?

just so you know:

i was SUPER suprised at how cheap train reservations were, like 5 euro was the standard - worth it! don't be afraid to reserve, it's not too expensive! overnight trains are another story. somehow, i think you're expected to pay way too much to sleep in cramped ass quarters, about 20 euro per person.

hey, you're sure spending a lot of time in brussels - have you heard of the belgian ardennes? if you care for nature and enjoy hiking, i'd cut a day away from brugges and three from brussels and head down south where the forest is...

personally, i would go: frankfurt = 0, hamburg = 4, dresden = 4, munich = 5 (hey, it's a beautiful city!).
i'd also take a day away from haarlem and give it to london.

good schedule otherwise!

its nice to have an itinerary, but trust me it will change once you get there, and meet people and they recommend to go here, there, ect.....

I recommend you go check out the museum called "Dachau" it's in Munich.

and good luck on your trip!

Cool, thanks crew. I suppose jotting up an itinerary is just a way to feel like I am being productive as the days crawl by until my departure....man, my life is stressful right now, i need this trip AND CANNOT WAIT!

Hey CC...

Not sure if im right or not, but did one of your earlier itineries include copenhagen...

If so, any reason for now leaving it out, just a time thing?

Otherwise, as joanof says, itineries are probably always going to change, but i guess its gives you a framework in which to base your adventure on.

Good luck man...

s'up Oz? Yeah Copenhagen is out....When i finally decided on my Eurail pass I decided to combine the Czech pass along with the Germany-Benelux pass for economic reasons, thus finacially Denmark was no longer feesable.......This time around
