this one looks like it’d be pretty good:
and then this one along with it looks like it’d be awesome:
the first one isn’t out yet, but the second one has been for a while now. anyone ever use that one??
I used last years version of Europe on a Shoestring for my trip to Europe last Summer. It was great to use in traveling all over Europe. That being said, I personally found “Let’s Go Europe” to be a bit more helpful for my trip. I thought that the eating and sleeping suggestions in Let’s Go were better, but that the maps and travel information in Lonely Planet was better. I would certainly suggest picking up this book if you are doing the whole “full swing” of Europe. If you are visiting only a few countries and spending more time in each, you may find that individual country books are more useful.
I agree, I like the maps and some of the travel information in Lonely Planet, but think the real “budget traveler” information including where to stay, etc. is better in Let’s Go. I also think Let’s Go is better and more up to date with “getting around” information like whether to take train or bus, description of local transportation, information on the national rail system, etc.
