3 friends and I are about to embark on a 6 and a half week trip to Europe. We will be departing in early July and will return in late August. We are looking to see as much as possible while still maintaining a fairly restricted budget. We plan to stay in youth hostels the majority of nights. We all are 20-21 years old. Below I have included a rough itinerary of our plans. We are looking for comments on the following topics:
-What cities to add and which to remove?
-Does our trip seem too spread out/ should we condense it?
-Is the rail pass the most cost effective choice for us?
-Any other glaring errors we have made (we are 1st time travelers)
Madrid 7-8 july
San sebastian 8-10 july
Paris 11-13 july
Copenhagen 13-16 july
Berlin 16-19 july
Amsterdam/rotterdam 20-23 july
Belgica 23-25 july (just for 1 day in tomorrowland)
Interlaken 25-28 july
Munich or Milan, what do you recommend? 28-31 july
Praga 31-3 july-august
Budapest 3-5 august
Slovenia 5-7 august
Hvar/split 7-11 august
Roma 11-12 august
Mykonos 12-16 august
Ios Greece 16-18 august
Barcelona 18-21 august
Thank you for your advice and please let me know if you have any questions because I plan to monitor this thread very closely!
