hey there, this is the first time i've posted here and my first trip. i'm ultimately trying to find out what would be the quickest and cheapest way of going between destinations. i'm on a super tight budget and have super tight time restrictions.


this is my proposed itinerary, spending between 2-4 days in each location, fitting into just over 3 weeks:


paris

either fly to barcelona or get the night train to rome

fly to budapest with sky europe and then to greece for a few days relaxation

return to budapest, spend a night there

get a night train to prague

another to berlin

then fly to amsterdam

and fly home to england


is this the most sensible way of doing things? i also plan to travel at night for at least half of the journey. can anyone recommend some money saving ideas and or cheaper connections between these places? and how much will trains from budapest to prague cost?

thanks in advance!

eurolines (bus company) can work out sometimes a little cheaper from budapest to prague and their services runs overnight. You can book the euroline ticket from Deak ter

Hey, welcome to tpunk. You might want to check the prices on a 14 day pass on eurorail and compare that to flights
