~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The last trip >8 days cost $4800 total:
airfare-Martin Air from orlando to amsterdam
Krasnapolsky apartment in amsterdam,
train tickets all over NL and a trip down to antwerpen,
concert tickets,food, lots of beer, Xtra stuff
gas & parking fee`s for car in fl. airport

We did Dallas - Amsterdam - Paris - Poperinge - Brugge - Gent - Amsterdam in 9 days for around that same amount last year. We stayed in hotels and did not rent a car though.

Your cost are well within the norm for a EU vacation -$4-5k for two people.  The trains are great but to really get around a car is a must, Dupont,Silly,Fantôme,Orval,Dubuisson,Achouffe are all out in the sticks.
Plus theres all these little places along the way >


That castle was just something we noticed while driving and decided to stop.

Another stumble upon, we decided to have lunch while looking over the landscape.>> link




Now some badnews>>
Lastnite over dinner  wife says the tickets for the F1 race will be around 900£  :o  `about lost my appetite but as she explained its once-in-a-lifetime experience.  More costs  to come I'm sure  :D 

But this will mean we've covered the entire eastern/southeast of Belgium leaving only the coastal areas for another time.

We both agreed that renting a car in the land of awesome beer = bad idea  ;D Maybe next time. I think we may hit up Japan for our next international trip.
