So we're landing in Europe in September and planning to stay for about 5-6 weeks.
We plan to land in Paris as it seems to have the cheapest flights from Australia but also we have to go to France cause we have family in Lyon.
However, doing the family stuff, we're thinking of checking out Eastern europe. Places like Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and Czech Repulic.
I was thinking though, landing in Paris, we're pretty far from any of those countries. So is it worth it in the time we have to go all the way there and back? How long would it take to take a train from say Lyon to Vienna?
The other thing I was thinking was to maybe land in Paris and do the family visiting thing, then head east and then take off from one of those countries?
Is there like a major airport hub in Eastern Europe that would have cheap fares.
