East and West Europe Plans

Jump to last reply

Alright, here is the situation I am in right now. I have 20 days to spend in Europe from 27 Oct - 15 November, then I have another 14 days ( 19 November - 2nd December 2013). I am definitely on a tight budget.

I am in a dilemma situation whereby the first option 20 days is I will be travelling alone in Europe and the next 14 days I will be travelling with my family members. However, my parents prefer not to be in countries whereby the temperature is at freezing point, fairly chilly or slightly colder would be alright.

I would love to travel to France, Belgium, Luxemborg, Switzerland, Italy, Prague, Poland, Vienna, Budapest, Germany.


I do know that I would not be able to cover everything in 34 days but I am worried about the safety of myself travelling to East Europe alone and I can't speak other European languages.

so here is my question,

1. Would be safe for me to travel to East Europe - Poland, Vienna, Prague, Budapest by myself (female in mid 20s) ?

2. Do you recommend me to travel to East Europe (above mentioned countries) during 27 Oct - 15 Nov?

3. What is the budget like for a single traveller to travel in East Europe for 20 days?

4. I heard there would be a lot of crim such as pick pockets and thieves in East Europe, what would you recommend me to travel around with my money. I only have debit card from UK and I will be charge for service every single time i used and is not practical at all.

5. Is 14 days sufficient to travel around West Europe and what is the weather like?

6. What is the budget like for 3 persons's travelling in West Europe for 14 days. (covering Paris, Lyon, Belgium, Luxemborg, Switzerland, part of Italy such as Venice, Milan, Rome and Pisa).


If you have other suggestions, what would it be? I will be travelling alone and I am a female in mid 20s, I am on a tight budget and loves taking photographs, not into hiking at this time of the year as I do not have enough gears for wet weather hikings.

Please give me some suggestions.

Thank you !!! I appreciate your replies a lot !
