anyone do a similar amount of time?how much did you spend you know typical budget 20ish person?i haven't ever stepped foot in europe so i pretty much wanna go everywhere ...i have a friend who lives in dusseldorf so thats a definite other than that i cant seem to narrow it down to where to go...i dont wanna try and go to every country but wanna see quite a bit...what type of ground did you guys cover without busting your ass in 3 months?..thanks!
i did a similar thing a few years ago - it was very expensive so you need to take a lot of money especially if you want to see so much in a short amount of time because you will spend a lot on transport.
you need to average about 20 euros a night just for accommodation at hostels. plus food plus transport plus costs if you want to go into museums or other such things.
i covered a lot of ground in the time i was travelling but would prob recommend going slowly and really getting to know things rather than just trying to see everything.
also one of the things i regret is planning my trip too much so i couldnt change my plans or decide on things once i got somewhere - we made our trip too inflexible. be careful you dont do that!
I think I budgeted about 50 euros a day, excluding transportation. I did end up having some money left over some days and some days I went over budget but it evened itself very well out.
I would think trains are the way to go, but you could look into low cost airlines if you are travelling from a large city such as Paris or Amsterdam..
I am not sure about how much the entire trip will cost you but you should look into globalfreeloaders.com. This is a website where you sign up to show visitors around town or maybe even give a traveler a place to stay. In return you can do the same when you are traveling around Europe. I am signed up but have not personally tried it...looks like an interesting way to get a local perspective and meet some new people.
aright cool thanks alot guys...i think i may spend alotta my time east outside of euro land..ill def check out that website sounds pretty cool
