60-day Solo Budget Travel

Jump to last reply

Dear all,

I'm planning for a 2-month trip to Europe from November to December, in the hope to enjoy snowy season, scenic nature, good local food, art and culture Meanwhile I will be visiting friends and relatives in UK, France and Germany. I will be carrying a 60L rucksack, a small daypack and probably a sling bag.

The countries in my plan include Switzerland, Italy, France, UK, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany, though I wish to add Czech Republic and Greece into the already busy list.

With only USD6000 for budget, I expect plenty of overnight train journeys, walking, own cooking or packed food.

Am I squeezing too many destinations given the limited budget?

Next, I hear that budget traveler should start from the destination where price of cost is the highest to the lowest. Is that true? I am not sure where should I start from?

If I begin from Switzerland and end at Germany, I would have to carry the bulky winter clothes throughout the journey.

If I begin from Italy and ends at Switzerland, I guess I could adapt to the temperature well, as I come from hot and humid Malaysia. However, I may face the problem of overspending.

What do you reckon?

Thank you for your assistance and advice.
