travel advice & savings


amsterdam, brussels, berlin, stuttgart, prague

My boyfriend and I are from Boston and planning a 12 day trek through mainland Europe after a 5 stay in London. We are on a tight-ish budget, of course, and are most interested in seeing Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin (possibly Stuttgart as well), and Prague. It seems like the most efficient way to do this would be to fly to Prague, from London, and then take some sort of transportation from Prague to Berlin where we will start usage of the Benelux-Germany rail pass?

Trip Planning -- Clueless.

Hi there!

I’ve been accepted to study at a university not far from London next winter (January to May 2012) and I’m hoping to travel around europe a bit once the semester is over. The plan is for my girlfriend to join me in London at the end of my semester and then we’d start our trip from there. I really don’t know ANYTHING about traveling around europe or how much it’d cost but I know we want to visit paris, amsterdam, berlin, and stockholm and spend about 3-4 weeks total. Additionally, we are definitely looking to travel as cheaply as possible.

Discover Belgium, Holland & Switzerland On Line (Video + Stills)

Internet Premiere

My movie “Tulips That Yodel” tours Belgium, the Netherlands, (Holland) and Switzerland. Stars include a World War I trench museum, Bruges, the lovely Keukenhof Gardens, Dutch Windmills, Amsterdam (with its canals & a coffee house that sells pot), the mighty Matterhorn, and a great Swiss folklore show making music from “instruments” you may see nowhere else, plus yodeling.

“Tulips That Yodel” can be seen on the web, if you have a high speed internet connection. It is 30 minutes long. This is a free, non-commercial, streaming video on the Windows Media Player.

Multi city flights - ???

Hi ppl

I am planning a Euro trip starting from Chicago.
Chicago – Venice – Montreux – Bruges – Amsterdam – Chicago.

What’s the best/cheapest way to fly to Venice and back to Chicago from Amsterdam.\

Is there any specific city to/from where I need to book the tickets so that I can end up paying less. I am planning to travel via train between the cities.

Thanks Smile

American wanting to drive on German Autobahn

My friends and I will be heading to Europe next summer. On our itinerary, we are scheduled to travel from Frankfurt to Munich. I think it would be a good idea to travel this route by car (autobhan) instead of train to experience the autobahn for ourselves and to get a break from trains.

That being said, what does an American need to do to be certified/able to rent a car in Germany? Also, the high speed limit of the autobhan obviously is one thing we want to safely enjoy (being 22 year olds), but is it worth it?

Cheap Flights? Working our way from Rome to Amsterdam

We’re thinking of starting a 2 – 2 1/2 week trip in Rome, then making our way to Italy, Munich, Paris, Brussels with a day trip to Bruges, and ending up in Amsterdam (we think that’s probably the best order, but if you have any other suggestions that’s great). We thought at first that we would just take the Eurail to every city, but the gaps between Florence, Munich, and Paris are pretty far. Also, Italy isn’t adjacent to Germany, so it couldnt’ be counted on a 4-country pass.

In Europe for two weeks - what not to miss?

My friend and I are thinking about going backpacking for two weeks the summer after high school graduation. We definately want to go to Paris, Rome, and Amsterdam. What are some of the best places to go?

Also, what do you think is a good amount of time to spend in each city, keeping in mind that we want to see as many cities as possible without losing the experience of getting to know each city?
