Europe Trip Itinerary Advice/Criticism

Jump to last reply

Greeting all. Here’s my updated European itinerary. I’m beginning my travels mid-December and I’m dedicating 8/9 weeks. I feel I’ve got a good itinerary except for the ending. I had Spain in originally, but thought maybe I should focus on spending more time in the cities I listed. I’m just not sure. I welcome any advice/critiques, and I’m open to making adjustments.

A little about myself, I’m a 26y/o male; never been out of the states, and giving up a good job to fulfill my life goal of backpacking thru Europe. Hoping it will be very liberating! I’ll be traveling solo and I’m a musician, and an art and history lover. Looking to get out of my comfort zone and meet new people.

I plan on getting a Eurail Pass. I figured I would need the 5 countries pass, but not sure on the travel days. 8 days within 2 months or 10 days within 2 months.
