wow seem you had a great trip, i;m thinking off doing this trip at the end of next year, was if very cold in london, and the rest of europe, how much spending money should i bring thinking of $5000.00 AUD. feedback would be great
It was very cold in London, Paris, Lucerne, Vienna, Prague and Berlin. We took a few days to get used to it – we live in far north Queensland and stopped in Egypt on the way over so had no tolerance for freezing weather! But it’s all about being prepared – I had waterproof hiking boots, scarfs, decent leather gloves and a wool jacket and ski jacket to alternate. Plus, by the time we got back to London after the tour, I thought 6 degrees was nice!
In relation to money, I think $5000 should be heaps. All your accommodation, most transport and most meals are covered so when you’re on tour you really only need money for the rest of your meals, activities and whatever else you feel like spending on. We didn’t really keep track of what we spent, but it was a lot less than I thought I’d spend. I found Europe is more of an experience destination rather than a shopping destination.
Hope this helps!
My husband and I are thinking about doing this in December ‘11. So glad to hear that you enjoyed it. Can’t wait!
