I've posted in this thread and in the Italy forum about my plans for Italy / Switzerland / France / England- covering mostly cities such as Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, Zurich, Paris & London as well as St. Moritz.
Whilst I didn't have a time frame then, I do now. I can only be out of Australia for 28 days (including flight days). So I'm thinking that I can't go everywhere I wanted to. I'll be turning 24 at the end of the year, so there's always the future for me to travel in.
I'm kind of tempted to just do Paris and London, and spend more time there (like 8-12 days in each city). Take it slow as well- I have a disability (bipolar & asperger's) which mean lower energy. Whilst it would be nice to buzz around Europe, I need to consider what's best for me and my safety.
However, this feels wasteful. Airfares from Australia... for 2 cities? Are Paris & London that great to merit such a trip? I think they look fantastic. I was thinking of taking day trips to places such as Bath and Versailles. But let's not pretend Australia is next door to those cities.
I really want to go overseas at the end of the year. I don't want to 'hold it off' or anything like that. I like Europe, I like winter. I just worry that if I do too much- it will take a toll on my mental health, and the whole trip will be a 'blur' where I don't remember much in the future.
