Age of Travelers

Four friends and I planning a eurotrip for this summer. We are all eighteen years old except one who’s birthday is during the trip. Will our age difference put us out of place or limit our experience? Are there many travelers our age?

Is Flying more convenient?

My friends and I have been planning a month-long trip to Europe for this summer. We are visiting 7 countries: England, France, Switzerland, Spain, Greece, Germany, and Denmark

We originally were thinking of using the Global Eurail Pass for the 5 out of the 7 countries but are now thinking of taking the plane instead. Our main interest is both cutting down on actual travel time and saving the most amount of money.

Where to go!?

Hi! I’ve been living in Bratislava, Slovakia for the past four months and haven’t been out of the city much at all. I’m about to go back home to the U.S. in a couple weeks and want to spend my last days seeing as much as possible. I’m not really sure the best way to go about it…I want to see EVERYTHING!! But I just don’t have enough time. Any suggestions or ideal routes to see a lot relatively easily starting from Bratislava? I’m also on a budget, so sticking to trains/buses are probably my best bet.

I’d love to see Venice, Greek Islands…etc.

Summer 09 Itinierary help!!

I traveling with my cousin this Summer [both female, 20/21] and am looking at putting together a basic itinerary. I’m going to on Exchange to England from September so am traveling for a while before then. We are flying into London and spending 3 wks in the UK, then spending a week in Spain with some friends. From there, we have about a month to do Europe, pretty much August. We are looking at doing;

Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France as our main countries.

Short trips from Hannover

Howdy, I am currently doing an internship in Germany, just south of Hannover. I will be finished June 30th, and my flight back to the US is not until August 8th. So, I have about a month of free time to travel around, hang out, etc. I have already seen most of Germany, and want to expand my travels.

Here’s the problem, after being here since January, my money is tight. In fact, after paying for a place to live, food, and other basics, I will only have about 500-700 euros for that month. I do want to travel to Paris, and maybe even Amsterdam, if I can afford it.

First time - Is it true that I should only speak English?

Wassup everybody, I am going to be visiting France & Germany in a few months. It will be my first time outside America, so I have been asking all my friends about it. They all said that I should at least try to speak the language of where I am visiting, and I did get a book on how to speak French.

has anyone ever booked with DB BAHN?

Okay so the other day I booked a train from München to Amsterdam. I just realized this ‘small’ detail today:
