Hello Hello! It's 3 a.m. right now and my 5 friends and I are up wracking our brains over how to plan our upcoming trip. Only 1 of us is a seasoned traveler so it's pretty hard navigating through this all online.
So, we've come to get some help from y'all. Here's the thing:
Our trip is coming in under 3 weeks (Aug. 17th to Aug. 31st). The places we want to go are -
Madrid, Spain ->
Barcelona, Spain ->
Amsterdam, Netherlands ->
We've been meeting up for 4-5 hours the last 2 nights trying to figure things out. Here's some stuff we know:
We want AT LEAST 2 full days in each country, some will be 3.
We're trying to stay within the $1,000 range for budget for transportation and housing.
So, how should we go about this? Buy Eurail passes right now online? Reserve single-ride tickets? Wait 'til we get there and do p2p? Fly to some places? Bus? What would be the most efficient route to hit up all 5 cities?
As it's late, our brains are fried and those are some questions we can think of for now. When I wake up, I'll see if there is anything else to add. But for now, can y'all help some young first-time travelers out? Thanks much!
ps - i know we're cutting it very close to our trip without anything concrete yet. the 1 traveler was in malaysia for a month and another has been out of town until recently. Your help will be greatly appreciated!
