I thought I should visit Europe and my top choices are:
1. Switzerland
2. France
3. Italy
4. Spain
5. Greece

I can spend those 8 days in one of them and still go to the other four later. Well, I do need comments and suggestions, especially for those who had been to these 5 places. I thought perhaps the most fruitful way is to spend in one which has the highest standard of living, meaning most expensive cost of accomodation. Then, I can save the money to go to the rest. The best time to go in the year is also crucial.
