Where should I skip??

1 Jul 2009 brydz05 asked

I am tossing up between several options for my eurotrip.<BR><BR>The only way to see absolutely EVERYWHERE I want to see in the budget I'm aiming for.. is the 46 day camping trip.<BR><BR>I could save up more and do the more expensive options but it means I couldn't get there for probably another 6 months on top of when I want to go, which would make it winter, so I'd have to wait ANOTHER 6 months until it was summer again...<BR><BR>I can't wait that long!!!!<BR><BR>So in order to get there, in my budget, in my time frame I have to either camp for 46 days straight (which I don't think I could do)<BR><BR>OR<BR><BR>sacrifice either Spain, or both Prague and Croatia. All of which I want to see.<BR>I'm leaning towards picking a tour that has Prague and Croatia, cos I can always come back and do the Spanish Spree further down the track..

    Yeah, I would tend to agree with sacrificing Spain because there’s many other “Spain Specialist” type tours that you can do in future years.

    I have heard that Prague and Croatia are much better than spain. I have been planning for a trip to Prague for a while. A friend of mine just returned from a month in croatia w/ family and her pictures are awesome.

    I would have to agree to skip spain for now if you can back track later.

    At the moment I’m looking at doing the European Whirl for 18 days, and then the Greek Island Hopping.

    I was so set on camping for 46 days but then I thought about the reality of sleeping on the ground for that long and all that, I’d rather it be a little more like a holiday than an expedition.
