My first trip to Europe... Hostels or Couch Surfing???

So this is my first trip to Europe… There’s not much planned at all. I just graduated college and figured I’d wait out the job market by going traveling… so I’ll be going alone for the most part.

As for the trip, I don’t need much structure; I figure that I’ll probably want to play a lot by ear. That way I can stay places that I like for longer. I posted a tentative itinerary, and haven’t solidified anything. I’ve listed some specifics of my trip below.

Cheap Trans: Greek Islands to Cyprus??

Hi all,

I’m gonna be spending some time in the Greek Islands, namely, Ios, Mykonos, Santorini, and maybe Corfu. I’d really like to head to Cyprus after that. Can someone let me know what the best mode of transport is? The cheaper the better! I don’t mind ferrying it over.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much guys.


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.

Freighter Travel

15:39 minutes (14.33 MB)

Ever want to hitch a ride to Europe on a cargo freighter? Well, you can. Matt talks with an expert about the ins and outs of this unique form of transportation, and how you can set sail on the open seas.

Can you please review my itinerary and/or give me transportation tips?

My friend and I are going to Europe for 14 days and we had the following itinerary in mind. Please let me know what you think. I know it might seem a bit rushed but we would love to squeeze this all in. Also Euro Rail seems a touch expensive but I am wondering if it is our best bet. We are definitely budget-minded but time is a bigger concern as we want to do as much justice as possible to each place.
