I'm hoping you can help me to plan my itinerary a little bit better or at least give me some idea where to start my planning, keeping in mind we need to include some activities for a 2 year old!
We really enjoy nature & photography pretty landscapes, old buildings, rural barns/farms , canal paths, lakes & beaches and driving along the country back roads.
We will arrive in Calais but not sure where to start with our itinerary. My sister's family is traveling from the States for their first driving trip into Europe , so would like to include whatever is realistically possible. Please, also any suggestions on beautiful back roads, old villages or pretty drives would be very much appreciated.
I know there is more to see and do than we will be able to do, but here's a tentative plan I have outlined.
We are planning to travel in mid-pace as permissible by a 2 year old's patience levels, so although I have listed 3 countries/destinations, we can reduce the number to suit our needs. I was thinking of some destinations in our bucket list below:
1-2 nights in Bruges & mini Europe - I've only done Bruges as a day trip and find it pretty but not sure if 2 days are too much for the town.
1 night France ? - since we arrive/depart Calais , is there a nice village/ town we can stay in nearby for an overnight journey and some sightseeing?
Between min Europe & madurodam is any one preferred over the other? We'd probably only do one of these.
Any other alternatives on towns and sightseeing options are welcome.
All thoughts are welcome. Thank you!
