I will be traveling from my Malaysia to Europe. Backpacking style (budget traveling). Solo traveler. Min 2 weeks travel. Max 3 weeks travel. I know basic French and Spanish.

Planning to visit these cities in Europe.

France : Paris, Nice maybe Monaco too
Spain : Bilbao, San Sebastian, Barcelona
Italy : Venice

Anyone has similar plans?

By the way, need some recommendations about what to do if anyone has been to the cities listed above or other cities that I MUST visit also.

Thanks! or ("Terima kasih" in my language)

Hey mathley,

Will it be cold during the 3rd week of March in Nice? Should I bring warm clothes? I'm thinking jeans and baby-Ts and wear a jacket over it. What do you suggest?

Need advice :
Monaco : half day or one full day?
Nice : 2 days ok?

Thanks! :)

p.s Yeah who knows maybe we could have a drink somewhere...

hey Haza!
jeans, tshirt and a jacket over would be ok in march. in any case i'll keep you informed about weather.
monaco half day is enough and nice 2 days are okay.
in case there's some small medieval town in italy (you'll be really close to the border) if you'd like to visit it. in case count an half day for these.

about the drink.. why not i live 30 mins away by car ;)

Hi there!

I will spend 2 nights in Nice from April 4th to 6th, after I'm leaving for Cannes.

Is one of you guys there at that time?

Hi guys,

Just a little update on my Euro trip.

I will be arriving in Paris on the 23rd.
5 days in Paris.
I will be staying near Montmartre
I will cover some of the fav. spots in Paris and one day in Euro Disney :)

On the 28th I will be leaving Paris to San Sebastian.

The next day I will travel from San Sebastian by bus to Bilbao then head to Barcelona.

I will be staying in Barcelona for 3 days.

From Barcelona I will head to Granada.

Now, I'm stuck, should I go to with
plan A which is from Granada -> Paris ->Nice -> Monaco -> Paris
plan B, from Granada to Rome then Paris -> Nice -> Monaco -> Paris

Plan B may sound greedy adding more cities to visit. Whatever it is I must be back to Paris by the 6th.

Should I or should I not be greedy??

i think you could cut down paris to 3 days or maybe 2 then u will have a little xtra time in the south. frankly there aint much to see in paris at this time of year.
to cover disney land and the studio in one day??? u have to be there early morning when they open gate and stay until the evening parade. just be prepare 'tiket masuk tak murah babe'
your bilbao and barcelona plan seems brilliant.

i will be in porto on 25/03/08 and travel to ,madrid, valencia, barcelona, bilbao then to monaco before i visit scandinavia and europe eastern block. if you would like to joint me anywhere along on our crossroad pls drop me a line.

by the way cuaca kadang sejuk juga bergantung pada arah bawa stanby baju sejuk atau jaket kalis angin....jangan lupa bawa balsum bibir..kadang suasana terlampau kering...bibir rekah.

all the best.

Hi guys,

I've completed my Euro trip the past 2 months :)

It was great and it proved that I survived as a female solo traveler! Yeay!

Will post my pics soon of my trip.

By the way, below was my itinery :

Kuala Lumpur -> Bahrain -> Paris -> Hendaye -> San Sebastian -> Bilbao -> Barcelona -> Granada -> Rome -> Paris -> KUL

And guess what? I'll be traveling to Madrid at the end of June...specifically on the 27th June 08. Will be traveling to Madrid, Barcelona (love that city!), Cote d'Azur, and maybe Ibiza too :P

Well the main reason why I'm going to Madrid is for the Rock in Rio 08 in Madrid. Can't wait to rock!!
