A female friend of mine and I are wanting to travel Europe for a year after we get out of school. Starting sometime in May of 2006 and lasting between 8-12 months. We want to travel most of Europe to experience the people and the culture that there is. We have decided to travel within hostels and take day jobs everynow and then to help pay for costs. We wont have but maybe 5000$ US dollars a piece before we leave. We want to experience all that Europe has to offer.

For those of you that have experienced travel in Europe or who are planning a trip such as mine, are there any good books or magazines to look into before I leave? Maybe even talk to AAA or a website to look at. Also, are we going to need more money than we have saved up for?

By the time 2006 rolls around, we will be 22 and 23 years old. And taking a year off to travel. Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks.
Matthew R.

Well, I can't help you with the working in Europe bit. As far as where to go, I suggest you read a guidebook that concentrates on the sights and scenery, and see what sounds interesting. There is culture and people in EVERY country, so you may as well pick one that has other things that interest you, as well.

Alternately, you can take the weather into account. Perhaps spend the colder months in the Mediterranean countries, and hang out in the rest of Europe during Spring, Summer and Fall.

Sounds like you guys have a heck of an adventure planned. Just remember that there will be plenty of little things that come up between now and then that will make you consider postponing the trip. DON'T! There are always nagging little reasons your doubts come up with, as a trip approaches. You have to be firm and disciplined, and forge through those...
