Fly to Munich, DE, then see Neuschwanstein, Salzburg, Hallstatt, Ljubljana, Venice, Florence, Rome, Pisa, Cinque Terra, Turin, Milan. And then fly back home from Milan. Sounds like a good plan?

Or perhaps start from Munich, and finish at Rome? By this we save about 200 miles of train riding.

We plan to fly to Seattle, take a tour at Boeing aircraft factory, then visit Olympic NP and take a ferry to Victoria, Canada. After that seeing the beautiful island of Victoria, we will take another ferry to Vancouver, one of the best-for-living cities in the world. Then we will drive a long roadtrip to Banff national park in the Canadian Rockies, where the admission is free for this year. After seeing the beautiful glacial lakes and mountains, we will drive to Spokane, Washington, then back to Seattle, and take a flight back home. We will drive total 1300 miles and have 11 days of fun there.

We will drive the scenic road right by the Pacific ocean, then turn east and head to Crater Lake, then head north through Bend and spend a night at the historic Timberline Lodge, and then drive through the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. I am really looking forward to this trip! I know there's going to be very much fun!
