Hi, I’m going to be backpacking around Europe for three months and by the looks of it I’m going to be in Spain on Christmas/NYE. I’m a solo first time traveler, so I was wondering if anyone has some tips on which city to try and end up in during this period – I’m looking for some good nightlife and culture to try and avoid feeling lonely, haha.
I just booked my hostel in Istanbul from Dec 30-Jan 1 2009. I’m traveling alone and would love to have something awesome to do on NYE – does anyone have any suggestions or experiences of Istanbul on New Years? I’ve been doing some poking around, but a lot of the stuff I see is sort of crap touristy stuff (very expensive!), but I’d be up for something tacky if it was fun!
