My apologies if my earlier post came off too negative, I think overall you have a lot of great locations on your trip. When I took my ED several years ago, one of my friends told me I...

No route advice, but I think most on here would say to reduce the number of locations you are visiting. With the exception of St Moritz and Rome it appears you are not staying more than one night in...

I don't have any window stickers on my car. I think the added weight and aerodynamic drag (if external adhesion) would increase fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

It was a nice business hotel when I stayed there in 2010 - but I didn't think it was anything spectacular (other than the location), similar to a Marriott property stateside. What did I miss??

Good point - but a person could also ship it home fairly easily.

My next trip to Europe, no matter the length, I am going to limit myself to only a carry-on bag and a backpack. I'm tired of...

Regarding Munich, I think the amount of time you spend in Munich really depends on your interest level in the cultural attractions that the city has to offer. If it were me, I'd only spend the 8th...

It may be expensive - but some of the increased cost is due to the VAT, which can be refunded when leaving the EU

I am in agreement with you. I got the IDL back in 2010 prior to ED. I plan on reusing it for my upcoming ED even though it will be 4.5 years old
