I am a newbee here at travellerspoint.
I am getting a 16day holiday from Apr 1-16, and I am thinking seriously of N.Europe. I have two friends to catch up in Oslo and London (1 day each), and i am on my own the rest of the time.
This time I dont want to travel to the so-called places of interest (eg: vatican, louvre or eiffel tower) but instead I want to experience the european life.
Some places i am considering are Dublin, Netherlands, Munich, Belarus, Denmark. I'll mostly be flying into London. Is it a good idea to make London as a hub and travel to these cities or is it better start a big loop from London->countryX->countryY->cityZ->London? (i ask this because i dont find any direct flight from say, amsterdam to oslo).
I am also looking for suggestions on what cities to travel through. Only criteria are: it should be safe, a party town with friendly people would be nice, and i have a tight budget.
How will the weather be like in northern europe during march-end and april-start?
