hey everybody,
i want to go to europe with my 2 best friends after high scchol and before university...and i want to see as much as possible. does anybody have any ideas for an itinerary that would take about 2 months. I am thinkin of flying into Dublin and doing a loop around europe and going home from portugal. is there anything in the countries that the eurail pass provides service to that i cannot miss (plus the UK!) because i probably would not return to europe for like 10 years cuz im going to med school! U of T rocks!

Thanx everyone

Hmmm well their is alot of places that you could go and see. but you really can't let anyone tell you what you need to see. what you need to do is make a list of thing that you can't miss, and then cut that list in half and go from there.

also what you want to do can determine where you should go. if you into Museums and not partying then Ibiza is probably not for you. Florance would probably be a better spot. if you enjoy culture and clubs than berlin would be a great place for you... so you need to figure out what kind of trip do you want.

"Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed popemobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonalds? Or do we want to eat without fear, tearing into the local stew, the humble taqueria's mystery meat, the sincerely offered gift of a lightly grilled fish head? I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once."

Agriadam has a good point about cutting your list in half. I know that when I did the Europe tour, I had the most fun when I had time to relax and get to know a place, rather than trying to pack too many stops into a short time.
Let there be adventure.
