Places to Avoid

Hey everyone, I know this is the favorite places thread but I was wondering which cities should be avoided when backpacking alone. I am a 20 year old 6 foot 3’ 200lb male but its still good to be careful. I will be traveling from athens greece through italy, switzerland, germany, fance, and spain. I would love to know where not to stop along the way. thanks!

Budget Help!

Hey everybody. I have a couple of questions regarding my budget for a future Eurotrip. This will be my second time traveling to Europe but this time I will be adding many new destinations. I plan on traveling for 53 days, starting from the end of May and continuing through the middle of July.

Explore Germany On Line (Video and Stills)

My film “Septemberfest” presents all of Germany’s best known places: Frankfurt’s old town, a Rhine River cruise, Cologne’s Cathedral, the Hamburg red-light district, Berlin (The Wall, and other changes since 1990), lovely Dresden, Nuremberg, the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial, Munich (glockenspiel, beer hall, and palaces), plus King Ludwig II’s most famous castle.

Car hire Berlin airport (TXL)

Hi,

I’m visiting Germany in November for a bussines meeting for a couple of days.
I will need a rental car for my visit there.. I’m arriving at Tegel airport (TXL) and I will take the car there.

I have been searching the web for the lowest prices for car hire and I came across an interesting site which offer really low prices for car hire Berlin airport.
The problem is that I haven’t heard anything about this company.

Winter Packing

Hey, if anyone has any recommendations as to what specifically to pack for a trip during Winter 2010… That would be great. I have read a list of what should be packed in for winter travels, however, my trip includes from start to finish( a bit concerned about the lower Bavaria and Alps):

France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Czech, Swiss, Back to Paris to fly out…

Thanks!
