    You will be all the smarter to do research. You don’t what to do the Oh I didn’t know that was there and kick yourself later. I suggest getting a Rick Steves multi Europe book either Europe through the back door or Europe 101.

    Hey, you’re in this forum, that’s a start! I’ve been reading a lot lately in this forum and I think it has so much value.

    Most of my research has been checking out this website for things to take/tips etc, and i have read alot of traveloguess to get an idea of what it will be like being on tour. Aside form buying a guide book I haven’t done much in the way of working out what I’ll do when I get there.
