I was curious... I am plannning on going to do the whole backpack/eurorail thing for about two months (sometime between early June and late Aug). How much money should i have for spending/hotels/general... i already have the plan ticket and euro rail covered. Also, i was thinking of going to ibiza or mykonos to party for 3 or 4 days.. good idea?? AND, what is the likely hood i can meet up with other people my age over there that are traveling or involved with TravelPunk?

ya know i am not trying to change your mind or anything but heavily consider South America loop. It freakin rocks man. And you'll have way different experiences than anyone who goes to europe. Not to mention you practically force yourself to travel again some other year to get europe in.

thats my two bits.

My friend and I are considering two months from June- August. We are still planning all of our stops and such. All I really have to worry about is food and souvenirs. My friends mom knows a General Manager for Holiday Inns, so if that country has one we get to stay for free or really cheap. If the country does not have one, he finds us somewhere else to stay. However this might be gay, my friend and I are spending 4 nights in Dublin in a B&B, I called and can't book until Feburary. I'm not too chill to meet up with strangers, but what the hay! We happen to be somewhere around the same time, we can give it a shot.

Happy Holidays,

Mike

Ash - how much money you need all depends on how you plan to travel. And where you plan to go. Give us your travel plans, and we can help you figure out how much money you need.
hotels = expensive
hostels / camping out = cheap
planes = expensive
trains = cheap
resteraunts = expensive
grocery stores = cheap
get the picture?

I'm going to Europe for 6 weeks with as much over $4500 as I can take. I can live frugally but any extra spending money (most of which will be spent in bars I can assure you) will be nice but I've budgeted between US$70-75 (depends on the euro when I get there) which is what most people on this site will recommend.
