I am going to London in July for a family wedding. Then I am traveling for about 3 weeks. I was in Rome, Venice, Athens, Mykonos, Paris, and all of southern italy last summer. NOW, I want to do some more.

SOOO........Amsterdam? Dublin? Spain? Switzerland? (sorry about the spelling) Germany?

I need advice on where to go. So, what are the hot spots I need to go to?

Thanks for the help

thanks a bunch. I love photography and the scenes in interlakn can be great. I think I am going to try to hit up 3 or 4 cities. London, Amsterdam, Interlakn, and madrid. But, that is a lot of distance to travel and i dont want to waste time doing so. Anyone got suggestions of travel mediums? Trains or should I get flights? that might get pricy.

thanks again

You should be able to get flights between those cities for cheap. You may want to consider Prague or Krakow. Both are becoming big party-tourist cities but they're still pretty cheap. Plus, there's a lot of things to see and do.

Anyhow, here's some cheap airlines for intercontinental flights - ryanair, wizzair, skyeurope, easyjet... there's some others I can't think of off the top of my head.

Good luck.

thanks for the advice jamiepeaski, and the welcome jamie. THis past summer I had a eurorail pass, but wasted some money because I didnt use it all up.

Also, online booking of hostels don't work this early....some of them don't at least... anyone know how far in advance you can book? anyone got some good hostels to stay at in interlakn? i know there are not that many. I am looking cheap...any campsites?

thanks
