Recommend nearby Euro cities to visit while in London for 7-9 days please
Last year was our first foray outside NA and we went to Portugal for 10 days and it was exciting and fun. Got to see some of the amazing castles and beautiful sites.
I'm looking to travel London sometime mid to late July and wanted to do a mini Euro trip. I definitely want to checkout London as it;s been a long time since I was there as a kid. I'm looking for advice here for all savvy RFD travelers who've been to London and visited nearby cities.
Particularly interested if i can take euro train/rail if there's option to checkout nearby cities. Is it possible to go see Paris? Spain would've been doable last year since we were in Portugal but we wanted to ensure we visit all surrounding cities like Cascais, Porto etc.
Budget wise, I don't know how much I should set aside but I know flights, hotels are pretty expensive in Europe (I used my Marriott points while in Lisbon so that helped, flights were $900!!)
