How to visit 29 European countries in one summer, where to stop first?

Jump to last reply

Hello! Long post here so please bear with me (:
My best friend and I are in college planning our graduation trip to Europe. At first we wanted to go to ALL 50 countries, and even though we have around 10 weeks to spare on this trip, we are traveling on a shoestring budget (no more than a couple thousand dollars). So we came up with a list of MUST visit countries, and a list of "Really want to visit for breathtaking scenery, but maybe could live without" countries we could squeeze in our trip if time and money allows. These are the countries:
MUST VISIT: Italy, Vatican City, Greece, Spain, France, Germany, Ireland, UK (England, Scotland, Wales), Switzerland, Netherlands (Holland!), Romania, Turkey, and Russia.
MAYBE visit: Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Rep., Denmark, Hungary, Iceland, Monaco, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Sweden and Ukraine.

We are girls. We are young but tough and adventurous and eager to learn from experiences. We are new at this but we know the world isn't rainbows and sparkles. Bad things happen but I really don't want to have many terrible experiences or deal with bad people, so I could use good advice.
We really want to immerse ourselves in the cultures and take the time to really appreciate the best that each country has to offer. I know I listed 29 countries that we want to visit, which is a rather long list, but I really appreciate all advice you could give me specially things like:
-Which country should we arrive at first, and in which order to follow?
-Very specific, local things to do besides the already well-known touristic spots
-links to actually useful train/bus itineraries (all the ones I've found are outdated/confusing)
-How to stay safe at all times, and avoid getting belonging stolen or have people rip you off, while still enjoying the trip and not being paranoid 24/7.
-Your best memories of each place you visited!
If you would like to send more specific information or would like to chat and exchange awesome traveling stories feel free to email me at adri.ilira@yahoo.com (don't send spam please!)
Thank you all so much for your time and advice!
