Your question is pretty general. It would be like us asking what kind of vehicle we should get. Some followup questions are definitely needed!

How much time do you have and what do you want to see? By that I mean, are you imagining a trip through Europe to be more about taking pictures of you propping up the leaning tower of Pisa, or more roaming through narrow streets in Toledo? Do you want a cabin in the alps or a hostel in Piccadilly? Three days at the L'ourve or three days blau at the Hofbrauhaus?

If you aren't sure where to begin, I would recommend reading up on London and Amsterdam as there is a high likelyhood you will be arriving at one of the two.

I would say that Rome should be considered a must for any 1st time traveler and I recommend you start off in an English speaking (or Norway/Sweden/Denmark) country.

Sorry, it was pretty general. Well, i am actually thinking of working my way through Europe. I have no time limit. Could be a month or a year....ill wing it. I really just want to know what countries i must visit. I know im going to france, italy, but when you travelled, what really stuck in your head. I wanna go everywhere so anything is welcome.

Everyone loves different places dude...as they all have something unique to offer and we all look for different things. I think that's the best part! Perhaps pick up a europe on a shoestring guidebook and flip through it, seeing what interests YOU the most.

Although personally Portugal was my favourite~ I loved the laid back attitude, the fact that they had real greenery (as opposed to spain), and pristine beaches....oh and the beautiful textile roads

I thought the cezh republic was cool, Prague and cesky krumlov. Of course no trip to Europe would be complete without getting steamin' drunk in the west of Ireland.

The Netherlands. Ahh the Dutch people. Gotta love them
I also feel very fond for Belgians, Greeks, and Romanians. All wonderful countries with so much to take in.

I gotta say croatia stuck out to me as maybe my favorite surprise out of the 13 countries i visited. Cinque Terre in Italy was also a highlight. Oh, and I absolutely loved the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.
