It seems my bug for Elsmar is back - that or the people around me are just boring and i need to find sanctuary! (Truth is my boss is on holiday in the UK for 2 days and I did a lot of my work on the weekend already).
I have enforced holiday leave in August where I will be in Toulouse (South of France) on the 1st Sunday, and need to be in Arnhem (East Netherlands) 7 days later. I thought it was a good opportunity to discover Europe but now have the question - where!?
Initial thoughts were along the lines of:
Toulouse - Montpellier - Monaco - Geneva - Liechenstein - Luxembourg - Dusseldorf - Arnhem
Honestly - I just want to see the towns and people's lives. I am not a big museum/artsy person. I like food, people, buzz (but not too much) - hence looking to cover as many places in a day or less (i.e. a drive around and stop off at 1 or 2 places then move on.
Also - I find driving peaceful - long drives are relaxing - plus I have been driving in UAE and India so am not disturbed by the 'Arc de Triomphe' european traffic.
Too ambitious, too conservative (should i head for Bratislava and skip Luxembourg)? Any recommendations on different routes or must see places? I am open to all ideas
Thanks a lot
