I was thinking early April time but as I have no structured plans I don't really mind, I've also met a few people who are planning a Europe trip in May(ish) so maybe the best thing to do is to wait and go when I/we know of other people who are going to be out there. It would also give me more time to raise additional funds for the trip!!
I think then that's the best thing to do is see which people are definately going and then probabaly meetup to arrange a itinary. I'll ask others if they are definate on going so i won't have ot keep waiting on them to make a decision as the sooner i can make plans the better to get it done. I'm a definate by the way lol
You can also travel by eurolines http://www.eurolines.com/, I think this is a bit more expensive then busabout but check it out.I have never used a ticket like this as i was a first time traveller with little knowledge on how to get about until i just went ahead and did it. You can get bus and rail deals also, I think it's best to get advice where the cheap places are to travel on trains. trains are far more expensive in germany then spain for instance. Buses can actually be more expensive in portugal then trains. There is lots to learn !!!
