$2500 and 10 days somewhere in Europe! Ideas?

Jump to last reply

I have $2500 to spend (US dollars) and 10 days to go to Europe. This is last minute because I just won a trip and have numerous reasons why I need to do this now and not wait. I have expedited my passport and hope to get it soon. When I get it in my hands, I plan on buying a ticket unless they are far too expensive at that point. I hope to fly out of San Francisco on March 9th and return March 18th. Currently it looks like flights are about $850, though I plan on trying to "name my own price" on Priceline as I am flexible.

Was initially thinking of Flying into Dublin, then a cheap flight to Paris, then a train to London and flying home. Three days in each city. That would be ideal, however I have recieved enough feedback from another post that I am considering just staying in one city for the duration so that I can make the most out of it and don't have to spend money travelling around city to city.

I know I don't have a lot to spend, but when I get paid on the 15th, I should have at least another $500 that I can spend. I may even be able to take an advance from my boss until the 15th so that I have enough money. I plan on staying in hostels and it look as though they will not cost more than $50 per night. I will be travelling alone (31 year old woman) so my eating should be rather cheap. Plus I love to cook and eat fresh foods so I won't mind shopping at markets and cooking in the hostel kitchen.

Any suggestions of a city to spend the 8 full days in? What's the most interesting and inexpensive way to do something like this? Open to all suggestions and ideas! Thanks!
