Our travel tips:
1. Travel days are just for travel. You don’t have to have the quintessential Italian meal the first night you arrive. Sometimes getting to your destination is a major accomplishment.
2. Be flexible and patient.
3. Take about $100 in foreign currency for every country you will visit.
4. Purchase the Thomas Cook Continental Timetable, published every month. It includes train schedules to take you from the largest to the smallest of cities. It was very helpful to us.
5. Stop for ice cream or icy-treats every chance you get!
