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.

Female, 5 weeks, by myself, HELP!

I have never been outside the US except Canada and Mexico. I am going for 5 weeks, Apr. 29th – June 7th…BY MYSELF. Should I be scared? Safety tips? I am 25, tall blonde and stick out like a sore thumb. How can I blend in so I can be safe. ALSO; let me know if this is a good route/doable in 5 weeks. I am starting and ending in Barcelona b/c I have a friend from high school there…

Barcelona
Florence
Zurich
Munich
Salzburg
Vienna
Prague
Hamburg
Amsterdam
Brussels
Paris

Any advice would be so much appreciated!

linen

Just a quick question, when a hostel says they offer linen are they referring to sheets only? or blackets as well.

I’m planning my trip for oct and don’t really what to lug around a sleeping bag or blanket…but i don’t want to freeze at night either.
