Europe Winter Trip, should I wait for Summer?
- 4 responses so far
Unless you specifically going to Europe to experience the winter vibe or ski ect, I would say rather go when it’s warmer. I just went during April (spring) and that was great!
considering this is a once in a lifetime trip I suggest waiting for summer.It is like Egypt or China in that you only may go there once possibly or twice in your life.go when it’s warmer but not too hot
I’m going in Winter but that’s more because this is the only time in the next few years that I know for certain that I have a couple weeks free. If time wasn’t an issue I’d definitely go in Summer instead as I’m one of those people that feels the cold. In saying that I’m not considering this to be a once-in-a-lifetime trip as I’m just doing a short trip now so I can get a feel for Europe. In a few years time when I have more money and can get time off work I plan to take much longer to see more stuff. And I’ll probably do that in Summer.
I’m going in the Winter; I am spending Christmas over there and can not wait; I guess it depends on what you want!
I love the cold; I love the snow and my girlfriends sister is currently living in the UK so we’re going over to spend xmas with her then to do a contiki from the end of Dec through January! Can’t wait!
Though I plan on returning and doing a summer trip next time as I’m doing a few winter countries this time; well places that I think will be good winter places; liek France, Switzerland, Germany etc then when I go back for summer I’ll do greece, spain, croatia etc..
Its impossible to do it all in one trip anyway; unless you’re made of money.
