Default Is this enough?

Hi

I will going to Paris - Amsterdam - Berlin - Prague - Vienna - Munich in February for three weeks and will have around 3000 Euros (in total) for spending. Will this be enough? I'm a little worried

Does this include your railpass, or allowance for tickets if you're not getting one?

That works out to be 150 euros a day, so yeah, I would say that is enough. I personally spent about 50-60 per day, including transportation, in Western Europe.

That should definitely be enough especially because lodging will be cheaper (in most cases) in February.

1000 Euro a week? That is definitely enough. I usually plan on spending $750 american per week, but bring a little extra just in case. So $1000 is definitely enough, 1000 Euro will be CUSHY

as it always happens, plans have changed! haha

we might be going for a little bit longer now and a few more places so i *might* be a little more streched.

the reason i was a bit worried before is because my friend INSISTS on staying in singles/doubles because he's a neat freak, likes his 'own space' which is fair i suppose.. but im the completely opposite, i dont mind sharing with people or anything.

i keep trying to convince him otherwise (it will cost double etc) but he isnt having any of it! grr.

the itinerary has changed a little as well, we're gonna be flying from london[home]-amsterdam and from munich-london. time is against us sadly on this one.

thanks again everyone, much respect.
