so I have my passport taken care of and my airfare..my travel bug bite infection has risen to a critical level and now it's an obsession. There is really a wealth of information, I've gathered it but I don't know how to extract it and organize it. I feel like everything is being hurled towards me all at once and I don't know where to start...
I know most of you have been to Europe before, may it be as a tourist or as a traveller. I prefer to be a traveller and be a local during my travels and not get stuck with tourist traps and jacked up accomodation prices.Hostels, Penzione and B&Bs are fine with me.
I am thinking of exploring Europe in at least 9 weeks, no more than 12 weeks. I want to avoid the summer crowd so it'll be around February-May of next year (god-willing).
I was wondering if I can ask your opinion about this tentative itinerary by country, if I were to explore Europe in 12 weeks. Keep in mind, I've never been there before and my ideals are quite distorted Currently, I am so inlove with the idea of backpacking through Europe that it's hard to think of anything else, so pardon me
UK-Republic of Ireland-Benelux-France-Spain-Portugal-Switzerland-Germany-Austria-Hungary-Italy-Greece-Romania-Poland-Czech Republic-Denmark-Sweden-Finland-Norway
I'm flying in at the UK and Flying out of Norway. I'm thinking of the homebase+day excursion method. Excursions would be city-countryside, historic sites, museums.
can anyone suggest any must-see places in Europe? Here are some of the things I want to see. It is not set in stone however. If you have been there, please share your experiences.
Bronte County (Haworth)
Shakespeare Home and Hathaway
try a pint of Guiness (:P)
Mont St. Michel
a leisure ride over the Rhine for castle-seeing
Fjord fjord fjord
Van Gogh Museum
anyway...thanks for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you. Please tell me about your trips. Please give me tips..just anything..thank you again.
I know the UK isn't covered by the Eurail, is a contry pass justifiable?
...I'm thinking of going to these places using the Eurail...
