Hello, first time poster... I am planning a trip to Europe from July 10th till September 2nd or so (about 50 days). I'm a 19 year old Canadian who likes to party rather than site see (although there are some stuff you just can't miss). I'm going to be travelling by myself just so I can meet as many people as I can! My problem is that I don't know how much I should budget myself... My parents will be buying my plane tickets... so my budget is about 4500-5000 to include my euro pass and my all other stuff. I calculated it and i figured this would make about 80 dollars a day... Is this enough? I'm not sure the exact areas that I want to travel (random travelling is half the fun) but I do know that I want to start in Amsterdam, visit Prague, Italy and maybe Greece. What is the best approach to planning a 'party trip' to europe for 50 days at 4,500$ (CNDN)... hope you guys can help, it seems like this is the best board to check out!

Welcome to TPunk. You will be down to about 55 Euros a day after the conversion rate. If you don't want to do a lot of tours and sites you may be ok, but alcohol is not so cheap. Drink before you hit the bars and clubs. Ands have fun!!!!

Prague is perfect for the partyer. Beers can be 50 cents (USD) or less.

Party hard bro!

Taht money sounds ok, in some places drinks may cost a fair bit like 8 Euro for a spirit and mixer but often it is free pour meaning they jus tip about half a glass of vodka in and hlaf coke not bad. In the UK it is far more expencive just ask at the bar, in the UK there are normaly small lists at the edge of the bar somewhere. Oh and in most of europe the tourist price is much more so try to go to local's bars.
