I've been wanting to travel for a while and would love to get away during the six week break after my As-Level exams,
- 18th July – 30th August.
- Interested in Europe, specifically Eastern Europe
- 3-4 weeks
- Budget of very max £1000.
I've spent a rather long time trying to plan the basics of the trip but that's a barrier I am struggling to get past, as I am obviously not very experienced I'm finding it very hard and would appreciate some guidance or advice, or simply confirmation my plans and budget are not possible, or if anybody has any ideas of specific affordable travel holidays/destinations that I can count as a valuable experience.
Looking at the more realistic option of 3 weeks, I put £10 a day aside for food and drink, and £10 a day aside for money to spend on things to do each day such as museums, attractions, e.c.t. So £20 per day * 21 = £420. That leaves me with around £580.
I was planning on getting the megabus into Europe from Newcastle, which I assume during peak travel times is £100 return, as during non travel times it is roughly £50.
Once in Europe I was planning on using a a £280 inter rail travel. I was then assuming the extra cost of overnight trains to my main destination of Eastern Europe, would cost around £100. If I choose to stay in within western Europe the money I save on non over night trains I'm sure would be used up in the greater cost of living. That totals to around £480, which leaves £100.
It was here that I just stopped, as I realised that my current figures were just impossible to work with as I had no where near enough to spend on accommodation.
In all fairness I am just wanting to get away for 3 weeks as an escape from the stress of exams, and as I love new experiences I thought there would be no where cheaper than Eastern Europe. However I am open for suggestions on alternatives or ideas of how to reduce my current prices to make it affordable. I was originally planning on travelling solo however a few friends, also aged 17 have expressed interest.
Thank you very much, I greatly appreciate any help and look forward to hearing back from somebody soon!
p.s if anybody of a similar age is interested in tagging along, feel free to drop me a message!
