It’s critical to actually look at numerous air terminals (assuming you’re adequately close to them) at costs – they change contingent upon carrier and season. I use Google Flights to track down the best and least expensive flights.

We burned through 3 evenings here which was awesome. Our days were jam-stuffed and we strolled 8-10 miles each day regardless of the crisp climate.


Since I had been to London several years prior to, I knew the transportation framework well and got an Oyster card when I showed up (this is an unquestionable requirement on the off chance that you’ll be taking the cylinder/transports) which saved me a lot of cash since it has a day to day cap.


I felt like I saw and did all that I needed to in the 3 days we had despite the fact that there are vast things to see and do in London. I as of now have a rundown developing for my next trip!

Bruges, Belgium/Brugge, Belgium

Step by step instructions to GET THERE:

We booked a train from London to Brussels, however sadly hit terrible traffic and missed that train. We conversed with the assistance work area and fortunately got set up for the following train that would be going to Brussels.


We were going to Ghent and understood that the stop in Lille, France was nearer to Ghent than Brussels would be, so we jumped off right off the bat in France! From here, it was around a brief drive to the humble community we were remaining right beyond Ghent.


I wouldn’t suggest bouncing off in Lille on the off chance that you don’t have transport arranged. Kevin is from Ghent and his folks got us so we had dependable transportation when we got to Lille around evening time.



There are three primary urban communities around here of Belgium that the vast majority visit – Ghent, Bruges, and Brussels. Ghent being the more modest of the three. We remained for 3 evenings, however since we showed up around evening time and left the morning of our last day, we truly just had 2 entire days to investigate. Contingent upon what time you show up/leave, 3 evenings could undoubtedly be sufficient.


Simply ensure you visit Bruges! It’s a high priority city in Belgium. We likewise went through a half-day in Ghent, however because of terrible climate and terrible states of mind, it wasn’t the best day. I’d very much want to see Brussels on my next trip there!

As I referenced above, Kevin is from Belgium, so we remained at his folks’ home in Ghent to set aside cash. On the off chance that we might have remained anyplace, I would have 100 percent booked an Airbnb in Bruges. I might have handily spent the full 3 evenings there. In any case, once more, I didn’t get to see Brussels, so that may be a spot you need to burn through a couple of evenings.


Ghent is logical a less expensive choice than Bruges or Brussels since it is a more modest town with less the travel industry. In the event that you stay here, it’s not difficult to jump on a 30 brief train ride for a roadtrip to Bruges.

Visiting Belgium in February was chilly, dark, and blustery like a large part of the year, yet it caused Bruges to feel significantly more supernatural. The old, well established structures matched with the channels going through the city make this city fit for a fantasy setting.

Paris Eiffel Tower Trocadero

Step by step instructions to GET THERE:

From Ghent, we took the transport to get to the train station and took a train from Bruxelles-Midi to Paris Gare du Nord. It was a simple, early morning 1 hr brief ride that was very charming.


Look out for the tricksters at the station who will come up and request your name and address – simply tell them “no merci” and they ought to let you be.


We purchased a public vehicle pass for $35 each figuring we would utilize it frequently and set aside cash, however just utilized it a couple of times. In the event that you’re adequately close to your Airbnb you can simply walk, or what we ought to have done: pay for a Uber.

There is most likely an entire month of activities simply in Paris, yet we remained for 4 evenings. Since it was winter and gnawing cold, we felt far better with this period of time. We spent a decent lump within recent memory inside warmed exhibition halls: Musée de l’Orangerie and Musée d’Orsay.


I’d express go for at least 4 evenings, perhaps 5 or 6 if you have any desire to attach a roadtrip to Versailles, Disneyland Paris, or Giverny.

The Lourve Paris France


There are 20 Arrondissements in Paris. I’m no master in this, yet this aide from World in Paris will give you all that you want to be familiar with every one.


We remained in the sixth Arrondissment since it was supposed to be very protected (in any event, for ladies alone around evening time – despite the fact that I never suggest this) and stylish/popular. We adored this region and felt it was adequately focal to stroll to every one of the principal sights.


We took the transport to the Eiffel Tower and Metro to the Arc de Triomphe, yet were adequately close to stroll to the Louver, Luxembourg Gardens, and Notre Dame. Despite the fact that, we might have presumably strolled to the Eiffel Tower, too since it was 2 miles (3.7km) away


The Airbnb we remained in was not great, yet we didn’t invest a lot of energy in the room, at any rate! However long there is a latrine, bed, and shower in the room (our loft’s latrine was down a dull, cold lobby), then you’ll be fine. Fortunately, the spot we leased is not generally recorded on Airbnb, so you don’t need to stress over unintentionally reserving it.

Barcelona Sagrada de Familia

The most effective method to GET THERE:

We flew through Vueling Airlines from Paris (Orly) to Barcelona (T1). This time we became brilliant about Paris transport and requested a Uber to take us from our Airbnb to the air terminal. This was a lifeline and chopped down our time and fret over getting to the air terminal on time.

In all honesty, we just remained for 1 evening! We landed early evening and left in the late evening the following day. We had a one-night hole in our schedule and chose to stop in Barcelona while heading to southern Spain. Our days were stuffed full and we were depleted.
