Europe Backpacking Trip!

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are planning to go on a 3-4 month trip through Europe beginning in March 2016. The idea so far is to start off in London (flying in from either Detroit or Chicago) then off to Paris. We've been looking into doing this portion of the trip through Contiki (or another tour agency or even on our own.) From Paris down to Italy than up to Germany and the Netherlands. Our one definite is going up to Sweden to see a friend we will be staying about 2-weeks with. We than want to go back to England or may go straight to Scotland and staying about a month in Ireland.
In the end just making our way back around. We have no problem staying in hostels/cheaper hotels. The reasoning for staying a month in Ireland is because it is literally the one place I have always wanted to go the plan is to rent an apt. or house sit for that month and then take day(s) trips around the country. We will have around $32,000 saved for this whole trip and have $700 in flight miles. Does anyone have any suggestions about places to stay, money saving tricks, plausibility etc? I have looked into prices and hostels etc. but am slightly overwhelmed...
