My Upcoming European Trip

I thought I would give a little update about my upcoming trip to Europe. I leave Thursday from New York to Kiev, Ukraine for my friends’ bachelor party this weekend.

From Kiev, we are flying via Moscow to Varna, Bulgaria for 3-4 days at the Black Sea resort town. We will also do a daytrip up to Constanta, Romania one of the days and likely around Eastern Bulgaria a bit too.

My friend and I then fly to Prague, Czech Republic for one night. We used to live together in Prague during a semester of business school so it’ll be a little nostalgic night before we catch the train the following afternoon to Frankfurt, Germany.

After a night in Frankfurt, we catch another train to Eisenach for a few nights plus the wedding at Wartburg Castle; which is itself a World Heritage Site. I am very excited and can’t wait for the wedding.

After the wedding, we head back to Frankfurt to get a rental car for 9 days of driving around Europe. I cannot wait and there is no plan. We get the car in Frankfurt and return it in Milan when we fly home 9 days later.

There will be several stops in between including several in Southern France, Northern Italy and Southern Switzerland. I want to hit a few places I haven’t been or haven’t been in years. I am very excited.

Some definite highlight stops will be Stuttgart, Strasbourg, Lyon, Marseille, Monaco, Chamonix, Albertville, Grenoble, Torino, Cortina, Venice and Milan. Other than that I don’t know where else we will stop but I can’t wait to figure it out! Road trips are the best!

After this coming Europe trip I fly home to New York and likely will return soon thereafter to Europe for a few commitments I have at the end of September in Spain and Ireland. There may also be a small trip in between to Costa Rica. I am still working out the details and hope to finalize them before I leave Thursday. We shall see but I am excited and there is a lot of cool stuff going on. Stay tuned for more!

Sharing is caring!

  3. Strasbourg is a fantastic city Lee. If you need any recommendations, please let me know. I am jealous of your trip. I am stuck working in China right now and would kill to be in Europe.

    • I don’t know much about Strasbourg and haven’t been there before but I am pumped to check it out. Any recs are appreciated for sure.

  4. Have you never been to Milan, Lyon or Venice before? Isn’t Monaco a separate country?

    Hello Lee, how much does it cost to take this trip? Thank you.

  11. I wish someone had thought about Ukraine for my bachelor past year. We went to Atlantic City which sucks.

    • AC does suck but then again I’ve been twice in the last 10 years…hard to go there if you’ve been to vegas…plus it’s in Jersey!

  12. An hour south of Grenoble is a town called Pays de Corps with amazing 360 views. And of course you know that all the good French bakeries are in France.

  13. How do you even pack for such a trip?

  14. You will be going just all around me all the time 😛 see u in Spain then 😉

  15. No, what do you honestly pack?
