Tips for Successful Trip Planning When planning your trip — both the whole trip and the daily schedule — make sure to leave room for downtime, changing plans, and spontaneity: ߜ Make time for relaxation. For every 10 to 15 days of rigorous sightseeing, plan at least 2 days for doing little or nothing. ߜ Mentally prepare yourself for those inevitable changes in your plans. You never know when circumstances will cause you to miss a train, for example. Try to rethink your unlucky situation in order to make the most of your new circumstances.

Schedule rest periods. I say again what is worth repeating: Leave room to picnic, to breathe, and to stop and smell the cappuccino. Do not pack too much into either your trip itinerary or your daily sightseeing agenda. ߜ Put variety into your sightseeing. Visit a church, ruin, or park, or relax in a cafe in between sights. Don’t hit one big museum after another. Give other areas of your brain a workout for a while. Your whole trip doesn’t then blur into one large, colorful mirage of Gothic cathedrals and old masters from which your memory can’t distinguish where Prague left off and Paris began.

In back of this book I’ve included an appendix — your Quick Concierge — containing lots of handy information you may need when traveling in Europe, like average rail times between different European cities, clothing size conversions, and contact information for various tourism agencies. You can find the Quick Concierge easily because it’s printed on yellow paper. Icons Used in This Book Throughout this book, helpful little icons highlight particularly useful information. Here’s what each icon means.
