If you had £600 to spend (that's $855.19 or €785.24) and ~3 weeks free time, what travel plans in Europe would you make?
Plans can be as brief or detailed as you like. I've been stuck in my uni town all year and I feel like I'm stagnating, but I'm not yet inspired by any of the tentative travel ideas I've come up with. I won't say anything about my interests or where I've been before, because I'd like to hear a wide variety of suggestions for how different people would choose to spend that budget.
You can make it with that budget but not if you move too much.
Are you euro ? If yes you can take an interrail pass but that'll be already around 300€ for 3 weeks.
Anyway you should pick 1 or 2 countries you like, weather can help you too if you plan to leave soon.
If I were you and had to leave now I'd go in south Italy and visit 3-4 cities and enjoy a quiet time.
You can also check cheap flights for SEA, with this money I could find a flight to bangkok and live decently 3 weeks there.
I'm not so sure, I did a full month round Europe for about £950 and I wasn't even trying too hard to save money. There's every chance I'll have a bit extra to spend, but that's the minimum I know I'll have by the summer.
I wish I had that kind of money. I just got back from a week trip to Georgia that I spent $150 on for the whole trip, airfare included.
OP it's hard for me to reply because you didn't specify a time. Is this upcoming like February or Summer? Because if it's soon then I'd stick mainly to warm countries because it's cold where I live in the Winter and it'd be nice to enjoy some warm weather. Get back to me and I'll reply.
Interrail may or may not be your friend, depending on how much you want to move around, and how cheap you can go as far as living expenses. It will take up a good third of your funds, but it's worth it if you want to see a lot of Europe. Note that it doesn't go North of Baltics.
Sleep in hostels or couchsurf, don't dismiss Eastern Europe, there's fun stuff there, cook your own food when you're not having something interesting. 600 pounds will be tight but absolutely doable.
Spent $40 on the plane tickets 2way from Warsaw to Kutaisi (2nd largest city). 2000km each way. Having the Wizzair discount memberships helps but otherwise you can just book earlier (I booked 3 weeks in advance) or pay the extra $20 for a normal ticket.
I actually didn't try that hard to save money, Georgia is cheap as fuck. It's $2.50 to get from Kutaisi to Tbilisi, a night in a hostel is like $3-6, meal in a restaurant is $2-5 (with a drink), beers in bars start at $1 or even less sometimes.
I mean if you really wanted to you could spend probably like $10 on your whole trip minus the airfare, it's very easy to hitchhike, if you're spotted as a tourist outside a large city you're offered to stay a night and given food, or you can Couchsurf. You can find really cheap food from bakeries that cost like $0.50 and fill you up decently. Even if you don't do all of that stuff it's very cheap.
It'll be some time in the summer. I'm not sure when exactly because technically I'm meant to be studying until September, and I'm not 100% sure when my free time will be yet. Probably May/June I'd imagine.
Yeah, you should definitly go to estern europe. I have been to tcheque republic for 5 days and i have spend less than 200e (with the plane ticket). Food is great, beer is great, coffee is awsome, sweet rollz.. Yummy... also you can have a bath with beer if you want to. Train is very cheap if you want to go town after town. It can be a great way to discover 1 or 2 countries
