I've been to Central Europe many times but never to Eastern Europe. I'm wanting to go on an impulse once and a lifetime trip to Eastern Europe this March. I'm 21 and want to travel alone. I want this trip to be one where I can discover myself and who I am. So I'm wondering how long can I travel on a budget of say $10,000 for expenses while I'm there. I've already set aside my money for airfair and transportation. I'd prefer to be rather nomadic and just get up and leave when I want, so as of now I'm not planning on making any reservations for any hotels. I'm not a fan of hostels, so please take that into consideration. Other than that I'm rather frugal. So any answers and advice from my fellow Rick Steves disciples are welcome! Thanks so much!
