    I would perhaps try and spend more time in pairs and London so you can see the places. Perhaps cut some day’s off Prague and Berlin. for this. Or as finnegan says Munich is a great fun place to go to so you can’t go far wrong with that.

    Cut Berlin to one day…Berlin is really a boring place. What made you decide to go there?

    I would disagree with finnegan’s last statement, Berlin is a great city and 3 day’s would be ideal.

    I think $5k should be more than plenty especially given the weakness of the Euro just now. For some general tips have a search of the forum’s, there’s year’s worth of great tips to common question’s asked.

    yeah this site is great, i found alot of info here Smile
    and i am still looking….
    finnegan about berlin , why do you think 1 day will do?
    i never been in berlin, but i think i could find lots of things to do in 3 days ..
    about the money, i think its good to have more then you need
    anyway if you got some info about anything i may need , it would be great if you can post it here
    i will update when i gather more info Smile

    There are two kind of Global passes, Continuous one’s which can last from a couple of week’s to Several month’s, this means that you could use a train every day of the pass duration in the available countries. The other kind of pass is a selective one, with so many day’s in a given time frame. This means that say 15 day’s in two month pass. Would do what it says within 2 month’s you can use the train for 15 day’s during the two month’s.

    I just find Berlin unfriendly, dirty, expensive and boring…I’m not into WWII history or Cold War history. Most of the place was destroyed in the war, so the historical beauty that you can find in other cities (i.e. Bamberg) is really lacking. Not a big fan of ugly modern architecture. If you have limited time, I think there are better options…like Munich or even smaller towns like Bamberg, Hamburg, etc.. having said all that, I guess you should go to Berlin for at least a day and see for yourself. Let me know if I’m wrong

    Eurorail is not a train company, i.e. there is no such thing as a Eurorail train. It is the name of a company which offer’s passes valid on numerous trains. Each European country will typically have several, individual train company’s with the bigger one’s operating internationally throughout the continent, A Eurorail pass is valid on the majority of European trains.

    As for what type of pass, look at the price’s and get which ever one is the cheapest to suit your trip.

    I’m not a big fan of Milan (it’s still rated one of the most polluted cities in Europe and for good reason). Maybe spend a day there, but I would head out of town to Como or one of the other alpine lake towns in Italy.

    tblaze: to make it easy, you can buy a eurail pass straight from Eurotrip. It’s as cheap as anywhere else (it might actually be a little cheaper with the rebate). Please consider it if you’re buying a pass anyway

    If you need any help at all purchasing, send me a PM.

    (BTW: you can also book hostels here too by clicking the book hostel link in your edit screen.)

    Not sure of the bungee jumping, but I’m sure you can find it (maybe berne?). You have some kick ass places you’re visiting and you’re going to have a blast I’m sure. Take good care of your pass! Keep it with your passport and I’m sure nothing will happen to it.
