Hi all,

After months of saving and quiting work for what should of been 4 months in Thailand,I have had to return back home from suffering imense abdominal pain, weight loss and dizzynes.

My venture was a complete flop and I am now just recovering from what was a reaction to the thail food.

The reason I'm really going on about is that i'm still not giving up all hope with travelling and would welcome advise and ideas on where else I could go, mainly europe, france, spain holland etc

Anyone who has been around Europe I would appreciate, ideas, places to go, what to do and how much money involed,

How long do you plan to stay in Europe, Stro? That'd help with the budgeting if you have an idea of the duration.

I went to Holland and Belgium last year, for three weeks. Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Antwerp are just some names to start the ball rolling. :)

I've been across western Europe about 4 times now some of my favourite spots are: Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg (you have to do the Sound of Music tour), Paris (sewer tour is a must), Nice and Lisbon. depending on where you go and when you go will dictate so much in Europe especially cost and crowds. I did Venice on a very hot and very crowded July day and that was not wise. Since the Euro has come into being there really isn't any cheap hot bed anymore. However you can still find some cheap accommodations and eastern Europe (tentatively set for summer 2006 for me) apparently has a lot of old world charm and some bargains to be found.

thanks for your replys,

I'm would like to be away from home as long as pos really, It would be good to know if its possible to do this for at least a month on a budget of £1500, I don't care if I have to be tight.

At the moment I'm stightly worried about accommidation costs, the brochers i've been going through overnight in B/B's all over Europe are £30 upwards, Is this is the case?, cause including food ect I could be through my money in no time.

B&Bs don't always come cheap, and I think this is true also for Europe. I would suggest you look into hostels instead (try clicking on the "accommodation" link at the top of this page for some help). A night at a hostel would definitely cost less than £30, and some throw in breakfast for a small fee (if it's not already included in the price). Also, it depends on when you're travelling. It's is the high season now, I think, and prices will definitely go up.

Do you have friends in Europe? Would help loads if you could bunk in with them, even for a short while.
