First time travelers here! My buddy and I are going to Paris, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Seville, Amsterdam, and Bruges this May 25 – June 25. I want to purchase the eurail 4 country 10 days/2 month selectpass. I don’t want to fly within europe. Ten days for eurail just doesn’t seem enough for a month trip, especially since we’ll need transportation within the cities. What about travel within countries?
P.S. what’s this talk about reservations for some trains? and how do we get sleepers? are they included in the selectpass deal?
New to the site, just decided to take my first backpacking trip to Europe! I have 3 weeks and will be going from June 4th-25th (+/- a few days). I will be arriving in Amsterdam and Leaving through Berlin as i have friends living in both of those places.
I just booked my flights and hotels for a 2 1/2 week vacation in October 2009. I am flying to Barcelona (and spending 3 nights). Then I hop an overnight train to Paris (for 3 nights). Another train up to Brussels (for 2 nights). Finally up to Amsterdam (for 6 nights).
Basically, I’ve done a good amount of research so far… But I’m looking to get some advice from either someone living in these cities or has visited these cities before, as to some fun things to do along with touristy sites (restaurants, bars, clubs, site-seeing).
I desperately need to know the best and cost efficient way to get to mykonos from Spain.
I will be attending Benicassim Festival in July and i have friends that will be in Mykonos in August.
Anyone know the best way from Spain to mykonos that wont cost an arm and a leg, and bypassing some cool places in europe?
Thanks for the help guys.

Will discusses his travels through Germany, Italy, Spain and France.
It has been a bit of a whirlwind in regards to what trip I am going to do this fall. I was originally planning on hitting just Croatia, but now my trip has been extended giving me enough time to do a real tour of Europe.
This is the path I was planning on taking. I am going to be there for about 4 weeks (maybe 5 weeks if I need to).
Amsterdam (2 days)
Brugge (2 days)
Baden-Baden (1 or 2 days)
Munich (3 days)
Salzburg (1 day)
Venice (2 days)
Rome (2 days)
Florence (2 days)
Nice (or there abouts) (2 days)
