So this is what I have so far for a 64 day trip in Cdn dollars:

Eurail pass: 10 day flexi: $530 (maybe we'll need the 15 day, but prob not)
Plane ticket: $0 (Parent's airmiles-grad gift)
Transportation xtras (flights-Dubrovnik-Budapest, Prague-Athens, Athens-Rome): $350
Backpack (got a discount): $120
Greek Islands busabout: $0 (bought it already awhile ago)

I won't be paying for accomodation, or much else for that matter for the first 2 1/2 weeks since I'll be staying at my friend's apartment in Sarajevo.

I've been adding on $70/day for 47 days: $3290
and for Sarajevo $30/day for 17 days: $510

Here's our itinerary
Sarajevo: 2 1/2 weeks
Budapest: 3 days
Prague: 3 days
Greek Islands busabout: 10
Rome: 4
Venice: 2-3
Cinque terre: 2
Wherever: 3
Nice: 1
Barcelona: 4
Paris: 4
London: 1 week at friend's apartment

This might not add up to the whole 64 days but it's pretty much what we're doing. I have money going steadily into my savings account, I've got a pretty good idea of what I'll need, but since I'm getting so close to the date (July 31) with a pretty full credit card - I want to know how much am I REALLY going to need.

Thanks!

If I were you I would go 60 euro/day in Western Europe. It can get pricey in the summer time. You can make it on 50/day but I prefer wiggle room.

Always take twice as much money as you think u need and half as much stuff.

Hope this helps.
