travel advice & savings


Summer 09 Itinierary help!!

I traveling with my cousin this Summer [both female, 20/21] and am looking at putting together a basic itinerary. I’m going to on Exchange to England from September so am traveling for a while before then. We are flying into London and spending 3 wks in the UK, then spending a week in Spain with some friends. From there, we have about a month to do Europe, pretty much August. We are looking at doing;

Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France as our main countries.

Indie/Rock Bars - Anywhere!?

Just wondering if anyone knows any places that play cool music..?

You can see from our itinerary where we’re heading
(List them anyway again like a fool lol – Amsterdam, Brussells, Bruges, Paris, Milan, Marseilles, Barcelona)
so obviously those cities are where we wanna know about, lol, if anybody does know?

Though anywhere else incase we change our plans? Thanks x

Christmas in Spain?

Hi, I’m going to be backpacking around Europe for three months and by the looks of it I’m going to be in Spain on Christmas/NYE. I’m a solo first time traveler, so I was wondering if anyone has some tips on which city to try and end up in during this period – I’m looking for some good nightlife and culture to try and avoid feeling lonely, haha.


Spain to Morocco

I’ll be in Spain in June and will be visiting Barcelona, Seville, and maybe Cordoba. We want to see Morocco as well. Any advice on transport to and from Morocco? Also, as two women traveling together, would that be any more dangerous in Morocco from anywhere in Western Europe? I appreciate any input.

hi all,

I’ve chalked out this itinerary for 23 days in july.

It basically includes:

Barcelona- Paris- Bruges- Amsterdam – Prague – Vienna – Salzburg – Milan – Florence – Rome

Will this be too cramped? What tweaks would make it better? And how much should i be looking at in terms of budget?



First trip to France, Spain, Italy. Help wanted!


I’ve just booked flights for a three week (22 night) to Europe from Australia and I’d love some advice on where to go, stay, transport…etc. My boyfriend and I are after a good mix of culture, beach and possibly a wine tour in France or Italy for good measure!

The rough plan is:

4 days in Paris then explore beach/countryside. Maybe Nice as it will be hot?

3 days in Barcelona. We’d like to see San Sebastian or Madrid, but doubt we’ll have time on this trip.

2 days in Rome. We’d like to see Naples, and also the Amalfi Coast while in Italy.

Spain to Mykonos.. Help anyone?

Anyone know the best way from Spain to mykonos that wont cost an arm and a leg, and bypassing some cool places in europe?

Thanks for the help guys.
