Take Off For Italy On Line (Video + Stills)

My film “Gondola With the Wind” can be seen on the web if you have a high speed internet connection. The movie begins in Italy with Rome, Pisa, Florence, and Venice. It then features Vienna (Austria), glorious Prague (Czech Republic), Poland (including Warsaw & Auschwitz), Ukraine, and Budapest (Hungary).

Krakow - Budapest - Belgrade

Hello everyone!

I am planning a huge trip starting December the 16th.
Thou I’ve ran in some problems while searching the cheapest possible way,as my budget is very tight. As I’ve understood, the best way to get there is by train.
I’m currently trying to find train Krakow – Budapest, that departs in morning/afternoon on 18.12 and train Budapest – Belgrade, that’d leave on 19th December around 1pm. Basically – daytime trains.
Also, a big problem is the fares – I’ve stumbled across quite few variations, that goes from 27e up to 100e and more.

Eastern Europe, December 2008-January 2009

Hi everyone! I’m planning a solo backpacking trip (my first!) for this December/January. I got a great deal on a flight to Poland so that’s my starting point. I need some pointers on where to go/avoid and also some ideas on how over-crowded my current itinerary is looking. Help?

The dates in question are 10 December 2008 – 25 January 2009 (42 days). I need to be back in Aberdeen, Scotland for the 26th as I have classes, so I need to end up somewhere on the 25th with direct air connections to Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Right now I have:

10/12 thru 11/12 – Wroclaw, Poland

Train fares around Eastern Europe

Hi, I am looking into traveling around eastern europe for around 1month later this summer. I plan on visiting Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Czech Republic and Poland before making way to Amsterdam. I have looked into the interrail pass which costs either £180 for 22 days or £300 for 1month of travel. I was wondering if anyone has traveled in these countries before and knows the cost of local trains. Would it be cheaper to buy this pass or to pay each individual fare? i have also found a coach from Bucharest to Amsterdam for £60.

Thanks for any help…
