Ok so I did all the math today for my two month trip to Europe next summer. I broke it down as follows.
Plane ticket- Seattle to Helsinki-$1500. I tried seattle to rome, came out the same price using ITA.
Two month rail pass- 999 big ones.
Then here’s where it gets tricky. My buddy who is traveling with me knows a ton of people in Finland from his exchange, so we don’t have to pay for a place to stay everynight. Therefore, I budget around 30 a day for food and boos and random stuff. We stay there for 7 days, so $210 total.
Then we work our way west to Sweden, south to Germany, west to Amsterdam then France and then go East accross to Austria, then south through Italy and end up in Greece.
I budget around 60 a day for this leg of the trip. Is this too much? We will be drinking a bunch so I’m thinking 20 a day for that. then 15 for food. Then 20 for a hostel (and thats being generous right). So $60×60 days is 3600. Plus the ticket and all that stuff is a huge $6100.
What am I doing wrong.
