Hey, I'm planning a mega month in June, doing the 22 day unlimited ticket Inter-Rail and then heading to the Glastonbury Festival in England straight after.

I reckon I would have around £1,200-£1,400 spending money for the whole trip (including Glasto). My plan is Amsterdam, Berlin, Krakow, Bratislava, Budapest, Ljubljana, Prague and another destination close to London (but on mainland Europe).

Was wondering if you guys think this could be enough? I know it varies depending on what type of person you are, but I am clued up on how to eat and drink cheapily. Whilst still having money left over for Glastonbury (hopefully around £150)

Cheers,
Johnny

ps. sorry if this sort of things been posted before

I guess you should be fine - since you are traveling quite a significant part of your journey in eastern european countries where cheap accomodation is easier to find and living in general is quite cheap. Umm...

Well...I'd vote for Paris. ;)

Enjoy your trip...and Glastonbury! :D

Yeah, I am doing my final year at uni see, and I'm trying to work out if overtime at my part time job would be possible whilst also having to do a 12,000 word dissertation. If I can get overtime, I can get more money. I decided Eastern Europe because I've never realy been there before. Berlin because it's my favourite place I've visited, and Amsterdam because the boat lands there from Newcastle.

Couchsurfing? I've heard of that before, is that a website where people let others sleep on there couch's basically?

Also, I am probably going to be doing it solo. I've wanted to do it the last three years but always depended on friends who bailed out. Is it common to end up meeting folks on the road and at hostels?

I was thinking Paris. I haven't been there since I was 14.

Yeah, that's where I was looking at buying it from.

Usually yes. Otherwise spoken, if you want to, yes. ;)

Thank you.

For going Paris - London I'd recommend searching for cheap tickets on eurostar.com - since you are going to Glastonbury you probably can book early for a certain day; there should be tickets from around 35€ for a single trip.
