Default Plan my trip?

My buddy and I are planning on doing 14 days after we graduate. We want to fly into Dublin and then head down to Western Europe. Does anyone have a good itinerary to suggest? We want to see as much as possible in terms of sights, and we like partying and adventure play, but we don't have a TON of extra money to spend. We were thinking England, France, Germany, or Spain, though I know realistically it would probably be good to do Ireland then 2 other countries. Any ideas to get me started would be great thanks.

What type of sites do you want to see? Things ingrained in popular culture or off the beaten path type of sites?

Since it sounds like you want to do the traditional tourist stuff along with some partying: I would fly into Dublin, and stay for 3 days, fly to London on Aer Lingus, hang there for 3-4 days. Fly/Chunnel to Amsterdam for 3 days, then head back.

You probably have one thing you DEFINITELY want to see (as does your buddy). Figure out what it/they are, and then arrange your trip around it/them.

Yeah, you can fly pretty cheap on air lingus outta Dublin to most of western europe. You should get on their site, check rates to different countries, and make some decisions. Spain and Portugal are close and are very fun. As is the Netherlands and Belgium. France can get a little pricey if you don't have much to spend etc.... I agree with Joe, give it some more thought and start asking away

Default 2 week trip after graduation

Have you looked into Contiki at all? You can do a 14 day European trip and not even have to worry about figuring out all the pesky details like how to get from place to place or where to stay. I went on a two week Contiki last summer and went to London, Paris, Switzerland, Austria, Venice, Florence, and Rome. It was a blast. I'm doing another Contiki tour through New Zealand this summer. Might be something to look into! www.contiki.com . Happy traveling!
