I'll be traveling to Europe alone this summer for about a month. I have my ticket but no real set plans. I would love to meet people along the way and thought I'd post a thread on here to see if I got any bites.
I'm a very easy going woman and am up for anything! I love traveling, cooking, swimming, and sightseeing. I've also used travbuddy but havent found as much luck on there as I would like.

I would also like any advice or must see information! Please feel free to write on this thread with advice, youd like to meet up and travel, or anything else youd like!
Greatly look forward to hearing from all you travel junkies! :)

This will be my first time traveling, I'm actually looking for a place to travel and Europe is a possible option.

Out of curiosity, how much did you pay for your ticket and to where?

Hi Anthony,
I bought it this weekend VERY spare of the moment. I paid $1,450 from Boston to Amsterdam. I paid 200 extra because I wanted to fly us airways and get more miles!

But i did find other flights around 1,200. Also if your dates are flexible then thats the best way youll get a cheap flight. Another thing is, is that the Olympics are going on this summer in london, so prices are totally up because of that.
When do you think you;ll be going?

I work until the 15th of June, then I'll be FREEeeee. But holy cow... 1500. Sigh. I live in SF, California. I wish I were rich or the fares weren't so expensive, and to top it off.. I don't think Euros will make it any better.

If I decided to travel to Europe, I'd leave around the end of June.

very nice. yeah i know its expensive. only reason why i booked the flight is because it was a graduation gift from my parents.
also if you stay in hostels or do couch surfing its MUCH cheaper! i have a connection with marriott hotels so im only staying in a few of those. they come to around 40ish usdollars a night which is nice. but you can even get CHEAP hostels for around 15$ a night.

my graduation gift was 7 years ago and that was to vietnam. i think i'd appreciate it much more now that i'm 23 though, lol.

yeah, i was looking into couch surfing, oh how nice it would be to end up going to europe.

oh well. if i figure things out and it so happens i decide europe, i'll shoot you a message :) or your parents can buy me a ticket as well and you'd have a lifetime friend! lol.

good luck.
