Hey BuddyLee, Great to have ya on the boards!!!

If thats 3500US that your talking about it should give you in the area of
2,884.23 EUR, whcih in the grad scope of things is pretty dam good!! I think if you budget for 70EUR a day will give you 41 Days of travel...not bad at all my friend. There will be ways to save money but also ways to go over budget, so ya need to factor that in aswell. You can cover alot of Europe in 41 days, and if you head over to Eastern Europe you $$$ will go even further!!!

If you want to extend your trip longer than the 41 days, don't try to spend much time in England, Switzerland, and the Scandanavian countries. All of those are very expensive. Netherlands, Germany, France, and Austria fall in the mid-range price (about $70 US a day). The rest of Western Europe is pretty cheap such as Spain and Italy. If you go to Eastern Europe you will be able to stretch your trip by quite a bit. Budapest and parts of Prague are expensive by Eastern standards, but if you hit Poland, and the Baltics you can get by on very little a day, or live extremely well on the $70 a day budget (5 course meals, private rooms, plenty of site seeing)
