Hi. I'm from South Africa too and i'm going on my 3rd Euro Trip this year. Just remember to book your flights early while they're still cheap. Easyjet and Ryanair cover most destinations. If your trip includes Belgium,Germany, France and the Netherlands then the Thalys train systems work quite well getting between those regions. Let me know if you need any help in specific.

not enough time man. not for europe. maybe 3 to 4 cities at teh most. you'll be in a rush and thats no good.
i dont wanna do more than 5 cities...i was researching a lil and wat looks good is paris, amsterdam, berlin, barcelona ad maybe ibiza.paris not long 2days maximum...think its do-able lol?and what costs u think im in for?staying at student hostels
Paris in 2 days? You may as well not go.
You're also looking at doing a lot of major cities (except Ibiza), so you should realistically allocate 4-5 days for each. You could route it Berlin - Amsterdam - Paris - Barcelona - Ibiza.
If you plan to go out a lot for clubbing etc, you should allocated about €100 per day for food, accommodation (at hostels) and partying. That's not including any of your air or train tickets.
