35I wish I could believe I was so misunderstood.
If you follow through on this plan in any form, at some point you are going to find yourself thinking, "Oh, I see what those people were talking about." But by then you will have wasted a lot of time and money. Which isn't to say you'll have a horrible time. I sincerely hope you don't. But it will be far from the optimal experience it could be.
I always think of this forum as providing an opportunity for less experienced travelers to learn from the mistakes of others. But you have to be willing to learn, and to consider that maybe people know exactly what you're talking about but still have profound reservations about your goals and methods of achieving them. If you lack these qualities, you'll be condemned to learning from your own mistakes and re-inventing the wheel over and over. Several someones here have been there and done that and found it less than optimal.
You're not misunderstood. You're perfectly understood. And that's the problem.
Travel agents provide itineraries--for a price. Travel forums provide advice. The fact that you're so resistant to doing any research or even thinking for yourself on this matter does not bode well for the outcome. The fact is, if I had 60 days to travel round Europe, I'd avoid a day-by-day itinerary. But you've rejected this advice, though it's been offered--indeed highlighted--more than once.
I'm sorry that what are, in my opinion, the best minds on any European travel forum anywhere weren't good enough for you.
