So going for a 3 week attempt at a whirlwind tour. Hoping it’s not too much on our plate. Looking for help finding hostels as we’re trying to do this on a budget. Also any great pubs suggestions in Dublin would be appreciated as well.

Headed to Bacharach for the Rhine river tour of castles, probably by boat. An suggestions in that area would also be great. If anyone knows any great hiking or just general activities in Switzerland. I put 3 days in Berne but it’s really just where ever we end up, it shouldn’t be too hard to traverse the country to find what’s worth finding.

Also, any great down to earth food locations, if it’s in a 5 star restaurant or a small mom and pop. For the most part we’ll be eating out of groceries and markets but I want to get some good food experiences as well. Maybe every couple days we have a nice sit down meal where the food wasn’t pulled out of our backpack to spoil ourselves.

For Hostels, honestly the best ones are already listed in your planner based on dates, price, and rating. Just click “book hostels” under each city. And now for the shameless plug: Eurotrip is as cheap (if not cheaper) as/than all the other hostel booking sites. Plus we kick ass Wink

For specific places in each city, check out our destination map.

hey thanks! I just kind of assumed it was an offsite advertisement and didn’t plan on using it, but it looks like that’ll actually be pretty handy!
