hi everyone..

im going on the European Inspiration tour on 28May 2011... I was just thinking what i would be able to buy when im in europe? i am very fussy when it comes to clothes so i probly wont buy much clothes when i go there.. do people usually spend alot of money on accessories e.g pens, key rings...

also i am only thinking of spending my money on food and the optionals how much would i budget for my 19 day trip???

thanks.

    I am budgeting 100 GBP or 100 EURO a day which is close to $150 AUD, im sure we will have money left over!

    I am doing the Big Chill on the 10th May!

    I saw the Lion King in Sydney, which was awesome and tossing up whether to see it again in London. I think I will see Phantom of the Opera also!!

    i did the london/paris/amsterdam and i was aiming for 100 euro a day and i did not spend that much> i came home with quite a bit but i am not a big shopper when i travel but i did spend majority of my money on food and drinks

    hi, as said above there are so many nice clothing shops in europe which are also cheap. heard of H&M?? lol. souveniers are also pretty cheap depends what your going to collect. i estimated 100e a day. and 110p a day. i had half of my london budget converted to euro and my parents were transferring me euros which i told them they wouldnt need to do the last lot. i think on an expensive day i spent 60e on a cheap day 15. dont foreget bus days you will only buy some food which you can try steal some from breakfast. also i only drunk when alcohol was free Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    “free” alcohol maybe means the couple of bottles of wine per table included in most optional dinners?

    In terms of buying stuff, remember whatever you buy you have to carry and get home. If you’re just doing the tour, maybe that’s not a big deal. if you’re travelling around after, it may be.
