backpacking itinerary & some questions

Jump to last reply

Hi, I was wondering if I could get some help regarding a trip I'm planning to (mostly) Europe. I’m not taking this trip until (hopefully) April/May next year (maybe the year after, depending on how much money I can save). It will probably be a 2 (or 2 and a bit) month backpacking trip if I can work out the logistics of it all. This is a list of places I would like to see/stay and how many days I am thinking of staying. I have made sure I’ve factored in travel time, too :)


Italy :
Rome – 6 days (so really 5 with travel?)
Venice – 5 days (will I need longer?)

Slovenia:
Ljubljana – 3 days
Bled – 3 days

France:
Nice – 5 Days
Dijon – 5 days
Paris – 5 days (or 6?)

Spain:
Madrid – 5 days
Barcelona – 6 days

Greece :
Athens – transit
Santorini - 6 days
Athens – 3 days

POSSIBLE OPTIONS?

Morocco - Marrakech
Egypt – Luxor, Cairo
Turkey?

So, the main questions I’m asking is which order should I visit each destination/country and how do I go about getting between them? (I realize I may have to book a flight if I add Egypt to this itinerary)

Also is visiting all these places in just over 2 months feasible?

My budget is will be just under $5,000 – will this be enough?

Should I add Morocco, Egypt & Turkey or see them both on a separate trip?

Any places I should drop?

Anywhere I should fly home from?

I will be staying in hostels/budget accommodation/camping where possible and I'll be flying out from Australia.

Thank you very much :)
