Idea #1

-Fly Into Lisbon
-Work your way south around the coast of Portugal and Spain
- Stop over in Gibraltor
- Continue up the Spanish Coast to Barcelona
-Head into southern France stopping in Marseille and Nice
- Through Monaco make your way into Italy
- Head south to Rome and if you want as far a Naples
- Backtrack some going through Venice

This is where your trip becomes really afordable

-Stick to the northern Coast of the Adriatic Sea and you will end up in Slovania

- Head inland now and south/east through Croatia, and end up in Belgarde, Serbia

-if you keep heading east through Romania and end up inthe city of Bucharest

- North from there will take you through western Ukraine and into Poland, stop in Warsaw and Krakow


Now bad to the more expencive countries

-Heading back west will take you into Germany and Berlin is a few hundred km from the boarder

- Make your way from Berlin west to The Netherlands stopping in Amsterdam of course

-South will take you through Belgium and possibly Luxembourg

- Back into France across to Paris, from Paris to London and Fly Home


Now please keep in mind that this is an idea based on what I would want to do if I had 2 months to spend in Europe. It would be spending 2- 3 days in major city centers and I would adjust the trip as I had to along the way to enjoy some place an little longer. This trek you would be taking buses and trains, and quite possibly hitching a ride with people you meet.

I hope this is of some help to ya in planning your trip, I have not done this so maybe its too much for a 2 month trip i really do not know...if we are lucky KC or Voyd will add thier two cents into this.

:D

Hey LR, You can go through a map of Europe and see what would make the most sense within your time frame and interests. I had a month on my first trip, and didnīt want to rush it. so, I only did Western Europe, took my time, met lots of people, felt relaxed, and experienced some awesome unfogettable times with now very good friends (and new girlfriend ).

Hereīs an interactive map of Europe with Eurail routes(also in Adobe pdf form)- Click Here

Hope you get more ideas B)

Hey LR,
I don't know how long you have to travel, but I am working on an itinerary for a 5-6 month venture through Europe starting in August 2005. (yeah quite a distance, but have to pay off debts). Anyways for sake of not making it too long I am leaving out most cities.

Arriving in Amsterdam, Netherlands
through Denmark
to Sweeden, Norway, then hopefully up around the coast and down into Finland.
From Helsinki arrange for a group tour to St. Petersburg, Russia.
Upon the return from Russia take the ferry down to Rostock, Germany.
Make it down to Munich for Oktoberfest , then travel the rest of the country to see relics of WWII, etc.
Head back to Netherlands and Belgium.
Over to Paris, France, and travel through Lyon to Madrid, Spain and Toledo. Head over to Lisbon for a couple days
Swing down to Seville, Gibraltar and up to Barcelona.
Stop by Nice/ Morocco on my way to Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples and Palermo in Italy.
From the port of Brindisi, Italy catch a boat to Patras, Greece and visit Athens and Cyprus (although due to a recommendation earlier Crete may be added) :P
Back to Athens, head up to Vienna, Austra and around the country then back to Prague.
Leave Prague to see Warsaw and then Budapest in Hungary.
Go back to Vienna and head over to Switzerland for a quick tour.
Split from there to London through Paris.
Spend Christmas in York with family, then back to London for New Years.
Venture my way across England to Liverpool to hitch a ride to Ireland and then back to Scotland.
Then take the last of my free train rides back to London and hang out till I feel like flying back to Detroit. (actually when I have no money left and have to fly back)

I wouldn't say I'm "anti-itineraries" but if I were you I'd go the "flying by the seat of my pants" route.
