How's the drive (for non-europeans) between Gothenburg Sweden and Amsterdam (via Copenhagen and Hamburg)? Should we drive this with our 9 month old daughter?
So in a month or so my wife and I are doing Volvo's Overseas Delivery
where you get your car from the factory in Gothenberg, get a month of insurance and can drop it off at a bunch of ports in Europe. Now we're not big into driving in Europe (we're Americans) so initially we were just going to fly into Gothenberg, get the car and leave it there and then proceed to Amsterdam and London. Today when looking at flights from Gothenberg to Amsterdam we started thinking about just driving that route and dropping the car in Amsterdam. From a quick Google Mapping
of the directions it looks like this would be a kind of cool trip through Copenhagen and with a somewhat natural overnight break in Hamburg Germany.
This raises a few questions and requests for comment.
1. We're doing this with a 9 month old little girl, who's happy as heck and pretty comfortable in her car seat. But still would this be too much driving for her? Its 2 days of 5-6 hours driving. Your opinion is welcome.
2. Hows this trip for folks who've only driven once in Europe and don't speak (or read) German.
3. Any really cool things to do on that route (or right off the route) that make you go "You must do/see this it would make the whole trip worthwhile".
4. Any other comments or insights appreciated. Thanks!
