My roommate and I are trying to plan a post-college Europe trip (maybe 6 weeks?). Both of us have travelled around Europe a good bit already, and were wondering if there are any not to be missed locations that aren't so typical on the tourist route.
So far, we plan on visiting Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Switzerland, and Germany, but are open to other countries.
Also: I was wondering is the Eurorail definitely the best way to travel around? I was looking at tickets, and it's a bit more expensive than I had anticipated. What kind of budget is reasonable for 6 weeks (not incl. airfare)?
