My husband and I are planning our first trip to Europe together this Summer. It may also be our last for a while as we are thinking about starting a family in the next year or so. My husband visited England three years ago for work. He spent an afternoon seeing some of the major sites in London, other than that, his time was spent stuck in an office building in Birmhingham. We enjoy active vacations but aren't really too interested in big cities. We'd like to experience the country-side and small towns but still have plenty to do to keep us busy. We'd like to visit: Ireland, England, Italy and perhaps Germany but we know we can't do it all in 2 weeks. He suggested choosing either Ireland or England for a week and then spending the remaining week in Italy and foregoing the visit to Germany. Does anyone have any advice that could help us choose what we should do? Thanks!
