    Good so far. Just be aware that Monaco and Nice are really expensive. I see you have a bunch of extra days — have you decided ow you are going to use those?

    Not really sure yet since half the people break away at that point and need to figure the remaining week or so with my buddy. I was thinking personally maybe Porto, Portugal. Any suggestions also considering have to eventually get back to London to fly out (cheapest to fly back to Toronto)?

    Would it make more sense to go England – Amsterdam – Paris – Nice or England – Paris – Amsterdam – Nice (as is)?

    Thanks for feedback.

    I would go England – Amsterdam – Paris – Nice.

    Is there a reason why? I’m only asking because I’ve gotten answers for both.

    Thanks for the help!

    You would be backtracking if you go to Paris first..

    Agreed with Mim, the train to Nice from Paris is really easy, whereas from Amsterdam you would probably be better off flying on transavia to Nice or something of the sort.

    Agree with Mim and Tigrouflip. Why not depart home from Barcelona? It may be cheaper on paper to fly return from London, but when you factor in the time and money of fly from Barcelona to London it may not be worth it. Also if you are flying back to london you need to cut a day of barcelona or add one to London cuz making connections will bascially kill an entire day

    finnegan, thanks for you comment. I’ve looked at one way prices from Barcelona to Toronto and the prices are at least double compared to flying out of London, not sure why though. In general flights to and from Barcelona are a lot more expensive in general.

    Agree one day would be gone due to travel.

    Any suggestions on places to go after Barcelona? I have one full week to plan. I’m not really into the history/museum part of visiting new places compared to sports, partying, beaches, scenery etc. Please take into consideration, eventually need to get back to London

    I love Granada – a few hours train ride from Barcelona. Wonderful city.

    Party? Get yourself to Ibizia young man. Ferries and cheap flights depart from Barcelona on a fairly regular basis during the summer.

    You will get laid in Ibizia (though probably by an English bird with bad teeth or an australian with cellulite)
