Any suggestions on active things to do in Europe?
Next year's vacation is Europe. At this point it's pretty formless, we will be spending about 3 weeks and we will be attending Worldcon in London and Eurocon in Dublin the next weekend. That week is probably all the time we'll spend in the UK, we'll spend the rest of the time in Europe, with a high possibility of a Mediterranean cruise as part of it. But in looking at all the various options, one of our travel group is already worried about the "passive" nature of just about everything we are finding to do. Eat. Drink. Look at old stuff. Our vacations usually include white water rafting, ziplining, snorkeling, hot air ballooning, parasailing, etc. Does anyone know of some more pulse-elevating European activities than gazing at massive architecture and famous art? Not to diss historic stuff. But toward the end of our two-week tour of China we were half crazed with cabin fever after an endless parade of undeniably cool architecture and lovely museums.
