Best way to travel with lowest expenses possible ??

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first ever big trip from new Zealand to Europe! Have no experience in this kind of thing. We start off going to Kenya and Tanzania with a top deck tour and then onto England for another tour for 30 days. Either contiki or top deck, undecided - both have great trips but we dontnwant to hangover out way around Europe which is the contiki reputation. But then I don't want to be on a couples trip with settled people not keen for adventure. We are only 23!! So what we are wondering is: how much would we need to survive on a day, what is a good way to lower accommodation costs as we go around? We will prob train around as it looks like the cheapest and easiest option. We want to focus on western Europe mainly the Adriatic. We figure the contiki type tour will eliminate the countries we don't want to go back to, and back t the ones we like with having due the tourist stuff. Fitting into small villages and towns is going to be the ideal with work a bonus if it works out. Any websites people recommend for this?
Thanks for your help!!
