OK, does this seem to make any sense....first

Im flying into London where

days - 2
nights - 2 then

travel day to Ireland (rail?) where

days - 3
nights -3 then

travel night(rail?) to Amsterdam -


days - 3
nights - 3 then

travel day( rail?) to France where

days - 2
nights - 3 then

travel day(rail?) to Italy where

days - 3
nights -3 then

travel night(rail?) to Spain where

days - 3
nights - 3 then

travel back to London (EasyJet flight)
for a night until I fly back to the US...

so...does this seem doable? and am I adding mucho travel expense by going to Ireland? It seems a little pricy to get there from London....any tips on the cheapest way to do this?

THANX!!!!

It sounds good. Just keep in mind that going from England to ireland you will have to take a ferry (they could take a while). Also, when you can, take a night train and crash on the train that will give you more time to see places insted of trains.

You might consider going to Spain before Italy. Its a pretty long journey to get through the Alps and to do that twice would suck up a lot of your time.

There's supposed to be a real fun ferry that goes from Ireland to France. They usually have movie theators and casinos in them. You might want to check that out.

Yeah, going by rail from London to Ireland will take a while - probably more than one night, as you'll probably have 2-3 transfers... The ferry's probably the way to go, or a cheap-ass flight (see: ryanair, easyjet, bmi). Same thing with Ireland to Amsterdam. I believe it's a 2-day ferry ride, and NOT cheap - at least, not when I looked into it.

Recomendations: Fly to Ireland.

Train from London to Paris....then to Spain(Barcelona), then Italy, then to Amsterdam, via...anywhere you wantin Switzerland. then fly from amsterdam to London or take train....check eurostar and ryanair to see which is cheaper

lemme know if you need help

i hate doing this but i have removed italy for a few reasons. So, this should add an extra day to each country, allowing for a less hectic schedule, and also cut down on the travel costs. so...london, then cheap flight to ireland, cheap flight to amsterdam, a few days there and the rest of the netherlands, rail to france, rail to madrid, cheap flight back to london where i fly home....its about 4 days and nights in each place, 5 in some...thanx for all the help everyone...it has been very handy-didly-andy

Dude, I think that you are making a good choice taking a country out You'll be much more relaxed that way.
