Vienna

Vienna to Paris (and maybe to UK)

Hi All!

We (2 of us) are trying to figure out the best way to get from Vienna to Paris by train – and we have had no real success. We can’t figure out what the prices are on OBB, or if that is even the best way to go. We want to leave Vienna on July 13th with a ticket to Paris. Any suggestion on the best way to do this? Also – is there any type of pass we could by that would get us from Vienna to Paris, let us travel around France and than get us to the UK? I’m guessing no, but thought I would ask anyways.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Best,
MiiiSH

Help with Hostels and age

Hello All,
I am planning my eurotrip for may 2009 and i have run across a few problems.
-my friend who I was hoping to travel with bailed on me recently
-I will most likely still go alone
-I will be only 17 at the time turning 18 in august
-Will this be a problem checking into hostels? (Im going to amsterdam, berlin, prague, vienna, maybe bratislava, maybe krakow, and definitly budapest, if at all relevant)
-Another group I know reletively well offered me to join their group all 18 yrs old, would it be less problematic for me to join them or would I run into the same issues?

hostels in Vienna and Budapest?

Hi! I still can´t find any good hostels in Vienna or Budapest. Since I´m traveling solo, I´d like to be in a central/safe location… Any suggestions?

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).

Vienna/Wien

A friend and myself will be spending about 4 days in Vienna (Dec 30 – Jan 2). We’d like to avoid spending the entirety of that time museum hopping to do something a little more, um, adventurous.

Can anyone recommend some daytrips outside of the city? We’re planning to spend a day in Bratislava. But what else is a good day trip from Vienna in the middle of winter? I’ve read a lot about Wachau and the wine country. . .any other suggestions for two twenty-something males looking for adventure?

Thanks
