Hey lovelee.
How cold it is depends on which part of europe you travel to. Up north ( Norway ) where I live it can be freezing, -10 to -25 degrees celsius or even colder depending on what part your in. But it`s loads of fun as well, ever tried snowboarding? :)
For the red wine you say you like, then I`d visit France, Italy, Spain. Maybe go visit a Winefarm in France, and old castle or something. I haven`t been travelling that much in Europe myself, but I`m planning to do so soon.
If you are considering to come to Norway please drop me a mail and I`ll help as best as I can.

Try to get to Ireland, everyone that goes there rates at as their top experience.

The west is the best part from Donegal to Cork, unsoilt with amazing scenery, great pubs fantastic food and some of the most warm, friendly, welcoming people you could meet (all with a story to tell to the weary traveller), dont refuse a drink, unless you are driving obviously, because people will think that theres something wrong with you!

Because of its geographical location, many people leave it out of ther travel plans which is understandable, also it has become a little expensive bit like anywhere, you can live on a small budget. Also the North of Ireland is a great place, many people still neglect it because of the troubles in the past but this never, ever affected visitors. Belfast is a great town, very friendly and full of young people, a real students town. (although there are some areas where some people will be more concerned about your views on the political frictions than what you are like as a person, ignore these people as even their friends will be embarassed by them and frown upon these questions).

Anyway, thats my bit done for the Irish Tourist Board;).

Have a great time wherever you go.

I'm in love with Europe as a whole...but if I had to narrow it down to a few cities....

- Paris
- Nice
- San Sebastien
- Barcelona
- Munich
- Berlin
- Venice
- Rome
- Florence
- Interlakken

Ok that's more than a few. Oh! And Heathrow Airport in London is quite spectacular, lol. (That four-hour layover was one of the best I've ever had ;) )

Cheers,
Katie ;)

Well, it may not be so easy to get from favourite to favourite, but here's my list. There may be better places in Europe, but of the ones I've been to, these topped any expectations!

- Budapest (my favourite of all so far)
- Edinburgh
- Barcelona
- Rome
- Paris

Good luck with the planning :)

Cheers, Peter

Paris, Paris, Paris - then maybe London (if you have the money!). Brugge, too. And Brussels. Definately Paris, though.
