[color=red]Hey Everyone whats going on?

I'm a 20 year old guy from Vancouver, BC and getting ready for my first trip to Europe in May. I'll be flying solo so I'd really like to hear some tips and what not from people who know the ropes. Or atleast a slight idea ;-)

I have 6 weeks to wonder around and I'll be visting

Germany: Frankfurt, Hannover, Berlin

Austria: Salzburg, Vienna

Italy: Genova, Pisa (leaning tower baby!), Rome

Switzerland: Interlaken, Bern, Zurich

I still have lots of time to change things and would like to hear some feedback on these places.

Also I'll be switching up between train and flying. Anyone have a suggestion of how many rail days I should look into buying for the Eurail Pass?

Thanks alot!!!!

Cheers,

Pinion

-many people i met who visited Pisa regretted it saying it was a waste of time. I don't know. I still might like to check it out someday but that's just something to consider.

As for your Eurail pass- heh heh heh- there are a couple of, um, "tricks".

I bought one for 15 days travel and managed to squeeze about 19 out of it. I don't want to incriminate myself on this site so e-mail me and I'll tell you how (and no it was not using erasable pen!).
