Europe Trip Dec 6th-21st Spain, Germany, Italy, France, ect

Post by Jordan » 28 Aug 2011 02:18

I am going to Europe from December 6th through 21st. I will be backpacking alone and traveling the continent by train. I have a 15 day eurail pass that goes through 22 countries and I plan to validate it within my first day being in Europe. My round trip is in and out of Madrid, Spain and I plan to make my first trip from there to Barcelona.

I would like to know if anyone in the cities I will be visiting will show me around or suggest places and things to see. I will not ask for anyone to host me, but if you are willing, it would be nice for anyone to offer up a place to stay on my journey. 21 days is a long time to be sleeping on trains and such...

Heres my itinerary so far...

Madrid, Spain>Barcelona, Spain
Toulouse, France>Marseille, France
Genoa, Italy>Pisa, Italy>Rome, Italy>Venice, Italy>Verona, Italy> Milan, Italy
Lucern, Switzerland>Zurich, Switzerland
Munich, Germany
Salzburg, Austria>Vienna, Austria
Bratislava, Slovakia
Prague, Czech Republic
Dresden, Germany>Berlin, Germany> Hamburg, Germany
Amsterdam, Netherlands> Rotterdam, Netherlands
Cologne, Germany> Frankfurt, Germany
Luxembourg, Luxembourg
Brussels, Belguim
Paris, France
London, England>Birmingham, England>Manchester, England
Madrid, Spain

(not 100% accurate) just an idea of where I would like to go and options.

Here's the list of countries to make it easy.

Spain
France
Italy
Switzerland
Germany
Austria
Slovakia
Czech Republic
Netherlands
Luxemburg
Brussels
England

If anyone from these cities is free during the winter time and would like to show me around, please let me know! A PM here would help or you can message my Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/JordanMichalAlejandro

If you have any suggestions, places I should visit, ect.. Please feel free to let me know!

Thanks!

Hey man!

I'm not exactly sure of what kind of trip you want to do. I'm also in a europtrip since ... may 24th. I'm coming back in Canada on sept 1st.

I would sugest you to visit less city in 15 days. Travelling is exhausting. Doing so many citys in 15 day; you probably won't see anything except the train. the rest of the time you'll basically sleep haha. If your goal is to do as much milles as you can in 15 days, then i guess it sound good!

Otherwise, i hope you have as much fun as possible doing this trip!

i was just gonna say the exact same thing. less is more in this case. just shorten your list by half and save the other places for another visit. seriously :)
but if you come to berlin, you're more than welcome to shred, hang out or party with us!

Hey Jordan!

I suggest you switch Cologne (Koln) and Amsterdam. It's super easy to get to Cologne from Berlin; plus it's on your way to Amsterdam. Also, there are lots of connection (i think 1 train every hour) that goes from Amsterdam to Brussel. So it will be easy to go to Brussel.

Hope that help!

Hey jordan, How many days u gonna stay in spain and wich days? if were a weekend i can travel to barcelona and/or madrid because I live in the north of pirineos (4 hour by bus to barcelona and 5 to madrid). I would like to play with you. In Madrid Keko, Mani, Ser and Paloma probably want to play with u too. In Barcelona maybe Joel wants to play but i dont know because he isn´t in active for some years but i can contact with him. If u have some questions about spain i think can help you.

Toledo is near Madrid and is a great city, a culture city. (in 1 day u can visit all toledo). If u pass for Huesca u have a house.
