Let's see, Kiwiguru:

starting point 1: destination of cheapest flight - for obvious reasons

starting point 2: north / south of Europe - for logistic reasons

starting point 3: least desired place - for tension reasons

Okay, let's stop kidding around (although one might say, these starting points are still quite reasonable), it depends a lot on your interests, budget and schedule. Advice will be easier and probably more helpful if you get some order here ;).

Hello Kiwiguru:)

I let how I start depend on flight prices and availibility.
I would just fly into any place in Europe, and expand the plan from there.
Get a Lonely Planet Guide book for Europe, to help with the expanding. In case u dont know, they are available in most bookshops around the world and cost around 27 Euros.
