As many of you have probably seen from this thread http://www.travellerspoint.com/forum.cfm?thread=11958, I am planning to go to Europe for 6-8 weeks. I am figuring a trip allowance of $5000 (USD). The flights that I found are $565.55 (USD) and the Eurail Passes for 2 months unlimited travel are $870.00 (USD). That leaves me with $3564.45 (USD) or €2926.95 (Euro). For a 8 week trip (56 days) that is €52.26/day.

Now that we are done the math!

How well did I figure the budget out? Will this be enough for food (3 meals), accommodations )hostels/Couch Surfing, the XxXx Cards that every city has, plus some spending money for souvenirs?

How much should I figure (in general) for food/day and accommodations/day?

Thanks in advance!
