Europe Trip

Jump to last reply

Me and my partner live in the UK but haven't really seen much of Europe. We want to go travelling but I think we'd prefer to do it in parts (Eg, Europe, then a year or so later America, then a year or so later Asia etc) and have saved up a few thousand pounds to start our first leg of our journey :)

We are vegetarian but love to try new foods. We enjoy music, reading and viewing filming locations (Especially if we're fans of the movie/tv show!) We like to see natural beauty and historical landmarks rather than museums etc but wouldn't mind a mixture.

We haven't really given ourselves a time limit yet, but would hope to at least spend a couple of days in each place - so we can get a better feel for the places we are visiting rather than feeling like we are rushing through everything.

We're new to this and would appreciate any information anyone can give us;
How much you recommend us to limit ourselves per day to spend (including food, accommodation, travel etc)
Whether you would recommend Hostels, AirBnB, CouchSurfing or a mixture of the lot.
Trains/Planes/Buses - what would be cheapest and most convenient.
How much time would you recommend us having for this trip (whether it be weeks or months)
Examples of travel itineraries, we wouldn't want to keep going back on ourselves etc.
Anything else you think might help/be relevant.

We would want to visit all the major landmarks/cities - but we are on a budget. I think our goal is to visit each European country on this trip, obviously some places we know we will only be there for a day just to visit a specific place, others we could possibly be there for up to a week. We just want to experience what this world has to offer, at the end of the day - you only live once!

Thanks in advance!
