88 Day Eurotrip!

So here is my plan:

Day 0 to 21
Do a London to Athens contiki trip starting on 29th June 2010, ending in Athens on 20th July 2010. I’ve never done a Contiki before, but know a few people who have, and they highly recommend it. I know it’s fast paced, but I think it contrasts with the rest of my trip.

Day 22 to 36
I then plan to spend the next two weeks “working” on an Italian farm. By that, I mean one of those cultural work exchange things, where you work about 20-25 hours a week, in exchange for free accommodation and food.

Europe/Oktoberfest 2011

I’m getting started planning quite early but this trip has to wait til my boyfriend is out of the Navy. We are going to be planning it around going to Oktoberfest and Amsterdam, all the others are places I’d really like to visit. Here is my initial itinerary: http://www.eurotrip….

Just trying to get a feel for what order to visit cities in or if there any “better” places to consider.

Thanks for any input!

Room for rent - Oktoberfest!

Hi there,

As I moved out of my old flat I am renting my unfurnished, ca. 14 square meters room that is directly on Lindwurmstraße. If you know Munich, it’s especially good to know that it’s basically 5 mins by foot until the Wiesn (Oktoberfest site), and everything else you might need is right on the corner. (You have two choices for the metro station if you want to go to the Oktoberfest, and one of them is Goetheplatz, where the flat is situated.)

The flat itself is fully furnished, and you have access to high-speed internet.

Are two days enough for Munich?

Need help with planning for Munich… we are thinking whether it’s worth spending 2 or 3 days in Munich. As we are there during Oktoberfest, we have one full day for that. The next day we plan to roam in the city. So what are places which are must-see? i am thinking of Allianz Arena, BMW museum… what are the others? Also are there enough places to see for a third day? if not, we will go to amsterdam which is our next destination… maybe places around munich? dachau? , Berchtesgaden, Nuremberg ?

pls help!! thanks

Oktoberfest: Anything left?

Does anybody know anywhere to find somewhere (hostels, hotels, couches, beds, ANYTHING) to stay in Munich for Oktoberfest from the 18th of September until the 22nd of September?

I don’t have a travel buddy and I don’t know anybody who lives there and I obviously can’t afford to be paying $200 per night. $70 or less would be ideal.

Is it wise to just go and hope I can find someone who might be willing to split the costs of their room with me?

Does anybody have any experience with this?

Cheers in advance!

Faces of Oktoberfest 2008 (26 pics)

Photos were taken from the Trachten- und Schützenzug Parade on the second day of Oktoberfest. About 9000 people joined the parade. They are groups representing the smal communities from all around Bavaria State, as well as some guests from other parts of Europe. Here are only a small number of selected photos from the 2 hour + parade. I’m impressed by the interesting traditional culture of Bavaria. enjoy!
