Ive decided to start a year in advanced on planning my month long graduation eurotrip! Problem is, this is my first time traveling outside of the United States (blahh) and I will be traveling alone . Its going to happen during the summer of 2010 (July/Early August) Here is an idea of the cities I will probably be hitting: Santorini, Greece
This trip will be 29 days, I’m hoping I can spend a decent amount of time in each city. My budget is 8,000-10,000 dollars.
Now, one of the main issues I was having was deciding whether or not I should travel with a group or go alone. I love the thought of having guaranteed people to hang with, but I want the freedom to do my own thing, explore at my own pace and not be stuck waking up at 7:30 for a tour of a castle I dont want to see.
Hotel or Hostel? I’ve been trained to automatically gravitate to hotels, but the hostels seem like an awesome place to meet new people.
Should I start learning a little of the languages? I’m taking Latin next year if that helps
I also wanted to know about the party scene. On the list, which one would be the best place to stay and party, and which one would be the best place to chill out, rest and relax. Ive been reading up on most of the islands in Greece, and Ive heard that Ios has the biggest party scene.
If anyone has any travel advice or any other advice for that matter PLEASE add. Thanks so much.
BTW If you would like to request I add a stop to my city list, please let me know.
There will most likely be more questions as the thread progresses.
Mýkonos, Íos, Athens, Venice, Rome
