Before I'm too old - A trip (in Europe, hopefully Central)

Jump to last reply

I need your help. I'm 30 years old. I'm at the crossroads in my life...this is a pivotol year for me. I saved a few thousand dollars of change (coins) over the first 30 years of my life, and I want to spend this money on a trip to Europe. I feel that if I don't go on this trip (alone) in the next 6 months, that I may never do my own trip again - and this is something I REALLY want to do. Most people I speak with that are older than I am say that I should do this now, because it will be hard to do later. In fact, almost everyone offers this advice. It will be my 3rd visit to Europe. I have been to Western Europe and loved it; I will return there with a friend later in life. This one will be a solo trip.

Here's where you come in (the details):

I'm considering traveling the end of this Spring, or the beginning of this Fall.

I will give myself about 11-14 days/nights.

I want to go to the Ukraine, but it seems so far from everything else. A few other places i've thought about are Romania (Bucharest), Turkey (Istanbul), Russia (Moscow, St. Pete), Slovakia, Bulgaria, Poland (cities other than Warsaw and Krakow).

I like old, authentic, and beautiful cities that ideally were spared distruction in their history (I realize this is hard to find). I want to pick 3 or 4 cities and focus on them. Most of the cities i've picked are too far from one another to include together, which is were the problem lies (to expensive and time consuming to visit ALL or most of the places i've mentioned).

Any advice from anybody that has traveled in any of these areas is greatly appreciated. I have the money, I just want to make this trip happen before life passes me by and I end up spending the money on bills. Any secrets on low price airfair within europe, train secrets, ideas, apartments, hostels, etc will be helpful.

Try to plan my trip, knowing you will change someboy's life. Thank you if you read this.

All the best,
Jason
