hi ,
Me ,my wife and our teenage daughter are going for a short visit of Switzerland,France and Germany before heading back to Singapore. Our plan is to leave by 4th week of November and the maximum duration is one week.

i do not know whether you are genuinely interested to travel OR was it a mere passing remark!! In any case, please try to understand, that it is possible to have a quick-run of a few places in all the countries that I have mentioned.

Ok, so what is the itinerary?

1500 times the land mass of SG, in 7 days. That's equivalent to trying to do justice to Singapore alone in a 6m45s visit.

More seriously though I am simply hinting at the Asian 'been there thing' of visiting as many places as quickly as possible. Visiting loads of places, and seeing nothing of them but the inside of a bus and lots of motorways. Maybe if you spent one week in any one of those country's cities you might start to scratch it's surface... but then you won't be able to tell everyone you've toured Europe.

They aren't concerned whether or not they see the country, but only having the stamp in their passport so they can brag about having been there. They just fill in all that the didn't see from the internet. :roll:

I've never been on a tour package in my life. Don't reckon I ever will (but if I still feel like traveling after hitting 85, maybe I might.).

So is it fair to say that accompanying a bunch of strangers from the web on a badge-collecting tour of Europe next month, is not exactly reeling you in then?

I'd still love to see the itinerary.
