Toscana in Italy is nice. Florence is an obvious stop on the trip, for its museums and buildings, but for a slightly less touristy spot, go to Sienna. It's very traditional European (small town on top of a mountain, surrounded by a city wall), and quite relaxed. Just don't put chairs on their pool-tables, or expect them to converse in English.
Cool thanks for the suggestions.
Hmm, well, then I suppose you might wanna consider southeastern Europe and see all the nice and attractive places like Bulgaria, Albania, Bosnia, Romania, Moldavia, Belarus, Ukraine and so on. They all have that poor country central american feeling..Besides, I even think they opened up a Dracula theme park in Transylvannia. And don't go to Berlin. It's ugly and expensive. Nothing to see and a hostel costs 30 euros/night. Though it's kinda cool if you spend the night at the zoologische garten rail station. Bunch of drunk and high weirdos. Kinda like the COR, I suppose.
Unfortunately the Eurorail pass I'm going to buy will only permit travel between italy, Switzerland, and Austria.
I'm actually tasked with planning the Austria portion of our trip. Vienna is a given, but I'm trying to figure out whether to do Salzburg, Innsbruck, or Graz. Anyone have any firsthand insight into any of these cities? Any "must sees" along the way? Yea I guess I should know since I used to live in Vienna but that was a long time ago .
next trip, south america 18 months, got the Teach English as a Foreign Langauge diploma, gonna try and get work in these countries starting with Chile
Cool, haven't made it below the equater yet. I'm still exploring Central America. I'm going back to Belize for some more diving right before my trip to Europe. My credit cards are going to be maxed out .
