12 weeks in Europe

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning on backpacking (as cheap as we can) around europe for 12 weeks for our honeymoon next year from sept to nov. We have contacted our local travel consultant and they have come up with a rough itinerary. I'm concerned that we are going to be too rushed and not get to see everything we would like to. We have not been to Europe before and this will be our last horah before having kids. So basically I'm looking for advice on what can be missed and where we need to stay longer or shorter and the best and cheapest way to get from one point to the next. We are not big party goers and are more into history, music (opera, classical) and architecture. Major Harry Potter fans so need a bit of time in the UK to see all the places Harry Potter was filmed. Also big Game of Thones fans =Ireland.
