Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg are three of smallest countries in Europe but they have big things to offer a traveler – beautiful sights, great food, artwork from the Masters and interesting history lessons. My friend and I took the Trafalgar tour Best of Holland, Belgium & Luxembourg and we had a grand time.

We flew into Zurich Switzerland two-nights prior to our cruise which allowed us enough free time to explore the city on our own. We purchased a Zurich City Pass (26 Euro) and this allowed us to transfer by train from our hotel to the city center, where we boarded a web of trams to get around the city. We stopped at some local coffee shops, sampled roasted chestnuts from a street vendor, and visited the Zurich Zoo as we explored the city. The next morning, we enjoyed a nice breakfast buffet at the Movenpick Hotel, which was included as part of our Avalon pre-night hotel package.
The strength of the American dollar this year has made it a particularly favorable time to travel, as the resultant exchange rates have caused prices for travel expenses such as hotels, restaurants, and shopping to drop anywhere from 15% to 50% from where they were last year. This makes for a great opportunity for anyone who wanted a vacation but didn’t think they could afford it to plan one, as well as for others to upgrade their travel plans with a little more affordable luxury. Here are some highlights of the places you might go where you can make the most of your dollar.
