Help on my itinerary! First time world traveler!

Jump to last reply

I am planning a one month trip to Europe between May and June next year. I have never done anything remotely close to this before but I feel as if I have a passion for travel even though I am only 21. I am in the beginning stages of planning an itinerary and frankly I am overwhelmed with where I would like to go. I am a college student travelling on a budget so I have to keep that in mind when planning. I have $4000 for one month which would have to include airfare to and from Toronto. Here is what I was thinking thus far...

London (day trips to Stonehenge, Brighton, and finally Dover)- 8 days

Paris(day trip to Versailles)- 5 days

Bruges- 2 days

Brussels- 3 days (Have to hit up the Heineken and Stella breweries)

Amsterdam- 3 days (I am a college student but not huge on nightlife so I didn't feel the need for more days)

That adds up to 3 weeks thus far with one week to spare. I have tossed around a number of ideas with what to do with my last week. First option is that I simply add more days to my existing trip and hit up some of the lesser known areas and eventually fly out of Amsterdam. Second option, Greece. I am aware it is out of the way but I have dreamed of traveling to Athens and exploring a few of the Greek islands including Santorini ever since I was a child. It has been my dream but I don't know if I can justify spending another $200 to fly from Amsterdam to Athens and then Santorini isn't exactly the best destination for a budget traveler. I would most likely fly out of Athens back to Toronto if so. Is it possible to do all of the above and Greece for under $4000 in one month? I would love to hear any suggestions anyone has! In addition, I am open to the possibility of going to Germany, Poland, or maybe even Rome for my last 7-10 days. Any and all advice is appreciated!
