Can I confirm if the amount you mentioned includes airfare and spending money (food and other misc costs)?
YES. For spain we covered ard 7 places - madrid, barcelona, seville, toledo, ronda & granada & espot. We flew via their domestic airline www.iberia.comhence
saved on time & $ infact. It's cheaper to fly than via rail!
Pardon me for asking, but isn't 1 week to cover both Prague and Venice a little short?
No choice as hubby cant take longer leave
In any case we were re-visiting these places so 2 nights in prague & 4 nights in venice were quite ok
Which time of the year do you reckon it's best for me to visit?
dpd on wat weather u like pinkblusher....coz we actually prefer cooler/colder weather! Prague was perfect in May 05, but venice was too sunny for our liking....ha ha....Italy tends to be really hot from june to aug! I think apr/may would be lovely
If I choose to do only 1 trip to Europe do you think it's too ambitious to cover Rome, Italy, Spain, Paris and Prague in say 2 weeks? I plan to travel via EuroRail pass... wonder if it's safe to travel solo though.
- it's packed but doable. I think it's gd to 1st spend 2-3 nights and then u can return to places u like in futur for longer stay. Pls check out www.whichbudget.com
which gives gd budget airline rec. U might find it cheaper to fly than rail! I would say it's safe definitely!!! It's safe when i did it almost 10 yrs ago....n also safe when at times me n SO split up for couple hours during trips there these few years. Rule is of course stick to bigger brighter places n avoid late nights. many pple travel solo in Europe, no worries. can be lonesome though, since we asians dont rally wif the caucasians taht well. It would be gd to be able to be wif So or close gf in view of all these picturesque places .
If you have any pics feel free to share them with me at [email protected]
may take a while....coz need to delete those human shots 1st....
Prague is a really nice place, I've read a thread on Prague, makes me even more feel like going there now.
- YES it's lovely!!!! the food is nuthing to rave abt. It's simply the old city feel of the place...coz it's pretty much quite preserved n nt overtaken by modern buildings etc
I've heard of comos, contiki tours. Are they good? I'm considering free and easy too but it really needs alot of detailed planning.
I know contiki is quite reliable. Gd to get them to help u plan coz otherwise u do need sum time to plan.
