I am going to europe for 3 months and taking 4000 usd which is after my flight and eurail. I will be staying in hostels, eating bread and cheese and in cheap diners. Is this enough? This is my first time packing so Im a little lost with how much I need.

These are the cities I plan to hit:
London, Amsterdam, Bern, Munich, Paris, Rome, Prague, Venice, Florence, Barcelona, Madrid, Athens, Vienna and Pamplona.

I thnk 4000$ for 3 onths should do you just fine. Just watch the partying, thats where money can be blown with out think, and before you know it,...NO CASH...

I think half of these cities are really expecive

London, Amsterdam,Munich, Paris, Rome,Venice, Florence

The rest "should" be a little more affordable.

Dont sell urself short either, go out on a lim sometimes and treat urself 2 something nice...dinner or show or something.

I surrvived on canned tuna and bread for almost a week and a half in the UK, and it was not that bad.

I am sure ur going to have a great time!!!!

Arthur is right, night travel will really save you some dough, as well, finding odd jobs along the way will help you with some of the costs. check you hostel pin board for short term gigs. Alcohol will really put a dent in your wallet, so seriously watch that.
