Sorry 'bout that. Spammers nowadays have taken up posting a bunch of these semi-nonsense posts before dropping their spam links, because apparently that way some forums don't quite clue in on them spamming immediately or something? Whatever the theory behind it is, it doesn't work here, but it's still rather annoying. Anyway, I've flagged that disruptive post; should be deleted soon.

Your profile says you're Irish, so no, you don't need visas anywhere in Europe. As an EU citizen, you have the right to live and work anywhere in the EU, without restrictions, and that includes travel. The few non-EU / non-Schengen countries in Europe which you might visit will also just allow you in without a visa; probably for a maximum period of 90 days or so, but I doubt you'll hit that much time in those specific countries.

As for where it's good to go: That depends entirely on your interests. Do you prefer culture, history, nature? Hiking, sightseeing, clubbing, adventure activities, peoplewatching, ...? The more we know what you're looking for, the more useful recommendations we can give.

Oh rte sorri my girlfriend was gettin a big head tinkin she's amazing lol. Basically we like doin all the things that uve listed pretty easy goin. If I had my way I'd just jump in the van and drive but I think we wud need some sort of a plan. Also are budget isn't goin to be massive.

Eastern Europe is a lot cheaper than western. Beyond that you need to give us some clues what you're looking for before we can make suggestions. Where have you been already?
