25 Day Trip To Western Europe

Jump to last reply

Hi, me and my friend are planning to take a backpacking trip to Europe. We will both be done our second year of university by the time we leave making me 20 and her 19. We are Canadian and though I have travelled a little to the United States my friend has never left the country. So this is going to be new to us but we are pretty sure we will be able to handle it. We have created our itinerary and were just looking for some feedback from people who have traveled before. We know some people say its fun to be spontaneous and go without a plan but since this is our first trip we are planning most of it and from my later description you will see that we left some wiggle room in the middle of the trip. We are planning this trip for the start of May 2014. we are flying round trip to London since we have found that the cheapest and we are planning to do as much traveling as we can at night so for now we have that planned. Though we know once we determine our travel arrangements we are willing to adjust the days and nights we have in places accordingly.

Fly to London
-remain there for 3 nights and maybe see York or Bath
on the 4th night travel to Dublin
-remain there for 3 nights
8th night travel to Belfast
-stay 1 night
10th night travel to northern Scotland (this night here might be switched to us staying another night in Belfast depending on how we enjoy it)
-stay 1 night
12th night travel to Edinburgh
-stay for 3 nights
16th night travel to Amsterdam
-stay 3 nights
20th day take a train to Paris and stop on the way for a say trip in Brussels and get back on a train in the same day and continue to Paris
-stay for 4 nights
24th night take a train to London
-we will stay for one more night before flying home the next day


Any imput would be greatly appreciated since this is not only our first time really traveling but also our first time trying to plan a trip. We are independent and determined people who want to make the best out of this trip. Advice about things we should do in any location would also be greatly appreciated.
