OK, so I'm going overseas in late June for six weeks.

The first two weeks are sorted - I'm making my way over to London via Dubai, staying in London a couple of nights and then flying to Sweden for a dance camp.

But after that - I can't decide. I have friends in France I will spend time with, but apart from that... options are open.

I can't decide what I most want to see, but I do know I don't want to rush things too much. Cities I would like to see include Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne, Zurich, Vienna, Salzburg, Florence, Rome and Barcelona. I might have a friend in Vienna when I'm over there who offered a floor to sleep on, which is another consideration.


Poll #1181779 European Adventure

Which option should I take for getting around Europe?

Contiki tour - Amsterdam to Barcelona
Busabout coach ticket
Five country Eurail pass - Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, Austria
Three country Eurail pass - probably France, Italy, Austria
Flying from friend to friend - Sweden to France to Austria

How exciting! :D

I voted for the Eurail pass because IMO that way you get to see some of the countryside, which you wouldn't in a plane (mind you, those trains go pretty fast so the countryside might be a bit of a blur :P ), and also the train is a bit more comfortable than a bus.

If you want any tips about the Netherlands, let us know! Amsterdam is a beautiful and interesting city.

That's along the lines of what I was thinking. It may be a bit more expensive than some of the other options but I'm going all the way to Europe - it's not enough to matter! It seems to be the consensus on my poll so far.

Thank you for your thoughts... and if I do decide on Amsterdam, I'd love some pointers.
