ACWIV, thanks for so detail posting from you. But my main purpose is for those landmarks in each country. Therefore, I still need to get to Germany for the Berlin wall and Brandenburg for time lapse (or video). My trip mostly by train as I going to get the Europe pass. Spain need to skip, over budget plus I can't find any landmark so far. Switzerland, Germany and Italy, total numbers of days will be the most. Once I reach certain area, I try not to travel so far out as I am alone. For now, I feels ok with my itinerary. Only concern is the train over there as I heard stories of bags been stolen (even saw it happens in amazing race). Maybe when I over there, could meet you up for a cup of coffee.
Add on : I just remember that I can't be at each city so early due to hotel check in. So, it's just fine with the train ride. I targeted to reach each hotel around 2 to 3 pm and then off to photo taking.
