One month itinerary- Ireland, Scotland, England, Belgium, Germany, and France

Yes, this is ambitious (especially for a honeymoon!), but each country has such distinct culture, architecture, and food that I figure we can do a highlights tour and get a taste of each one.  Otherwise things start to get a little monotonous.  I am sure we will have a crazy accent by the time we leave.  Haha.  I am so proud of myself with this itinerary, it is a masterpiece.  We are so excited about this trip.  Eric will add six new countries to his list and I will add three (Ireland, Scotland and Germany).

I don't have the day to day established, well, not every day.  But the accommodations and travel arrangements have been made.  The daily activities will depend on weather and reading as we go.
