is the 3K including your plane ticket and other means of travel?

I think you'll be able to do it! You'll just have to cut back on drinking

No, the 3K is what i'll have to spend after I get eurail and plane, I have like 5-6 k in all....cur back on drinking? No way, i'll cut back on eating! I need to stop being a wuss, money is money. This trip is bigger than funds i s'pose.

i'm gonna be in europe for 6 months on a $5000 budget (after flight and eurail). if i can pull that off, you can certainly make it for 3 months on $3000. try to budget for about $30 a day.

and keep in mind that you're young and planning the trip of a lifetime. if you come home from your amazing journey with some debt on your credit cards - who cares!! that's my trip motto!
