I too am traveling to Europe in October. Actually October 8th-26th. A friend of mine is supposed to go but he is dragging his feet. I already have my ticket booked and am looking to meet up with someone too. My rough idea of where I am going is Amsterdam, Paris, Munich, Venice, Florence, Rome. Let me know your thoughts, and when you are going. If you want to email me you are more than welcome to. Just PM me for my address.
