Hello Bailey 😊
Anyone ever taken a whirlwind trip like that for so short?
Yes, I often do, because I also am short of time, because of having a little kid who goes to school here in Germany where we live.
I think, the whirlwind trips are worth doing, because it is better to go for a short time than not go at all. I often spend the entire trip jet lagged, and bus tired from long over night journeys when I get to the destination, but a little tiredness never killed anyone.
Here are examples of my whirlwind trips.
7 days in India
6 days in Iran
7 days in Kyrgystan
2 days in Naples
2 days in Paris
I flew from Germany to these places.

its not so much the money aspect
If money is not a barrier, I say go on as many whirlwind trips as you can fit in your life. Though, if you want to fly accross the world, make sure you are going for at least 5 days, because flights get delayed and even cancelled sometimes. It wouldnt be so great to fly from the US on a heavily delayed flight, spend an exhaused day in Amsterdam, sleep and then fly out again, which is what could happen if you went there for 3 days, and the flight is delayed.
When you get to Amsterday, pick and choose what your favourite things to do are. Dont try to do too much, and leave plenty of time to sit and soak up the atmosphere. I think, that is the secret of making a whirlwind trip good.
