College Guys - Please Help with Itinerary Options!

My brother and I are finishing college and going straight to Europe for a month. We have most of the trip planned out, but aren’t sure how to spend the last week of it.

Our trip for the first 3 weeks: Rome, Amalfi Coast, Florence, Venice, Munich, Amsterdam, Brussels

After Brussels, we’re trying to decide whether to go north to UK (London, maybe Edinburgh) or south (Paris, maybe Nice). We will end up in Barcelona and are flying from there.

15 Nights in Europe

I am in the process of planning a trip to Europe. I will arrive in Rome on May 27th at 10am and my return flight leaves on June 11th from Rome. I have a rough idea of where I want to go.
Night 1: Stay in Rome
Night 2-4: Cinque Terre
Night 5-6: Southern coast of France
Night 7-8: Possibly Lyon or somewhere nearby
Night 9: Switzerland
Night 10-11: Munich
Night 12-13: Austria
Night 14: Bologna, Venice or Tuscany
Night 15: Back to Rome

Is this too much? I will travel by train, will I have enough time to get from place to place? .

Flight from New Jersey (or close by) to Berlin

Hey everyone,
I know there have been topics posted on how to find cheap flights, but I find myself unable to find flights in the price range I am hoping for. I am planning on backpacking from July 26 to August 26th . I would like to fly from either Newark, New York, or Philadelphia, and land in Berlin (preferably Tegel) and return via the same locations. So far the cheapest flight I have found has been for $1,010, including taxes and fees. Has anyone heard of a flight cheaper than this? If so, it would be a great help to me!

Going back to Europe

Hello everyone,

It’s been quite sometime since I’ve been on these forums planning a long trip to Europe. Three years ago I went on my first two-month-long backpacking trip to the Old World. Since then I’ve traveled most of Latin America and a considerable portion of the continental United States.

I’m off for a while before I go back to my studies, and decided to return to Europe (against Oceana/Southeast Asia), going back to places I’d like to see again and some that I’ve never been to before.

What Type of Backpack should i get?

So i am wanting to backpack Europe for about 5-6 months after i graduate from college, and before i start my career. I am wandering what type of backpack i should use.
