they have a big section on europe, which seems to cover just about everything for most of the major countries and cities; money, hotels, things to do & see.

i've never been to europe, but would love to go some day.

if you need to go on a budget you should check out a PBS program done by rick steves. they're up on hulu (edit: available only in the U.S.) & he has a site as well. he also has group tours, if that's what your interested in.
he covers places to see, where to stay & how to avoid crowds. he even did a 3 part travel skills special at the end of season one.

he's put out a ton of guide books & this one on how to get around europe if you have limited mobility.

note: a couple of the places he goes to in the series are closed now. like the visitors center at the waterford crystal factory, so do your research before you go.

note to the moderator: i'm not sure how many tags i should put on this since the show covers a lot of places and info. feel free to add any you think are necessary.

Hi gang! I unfortunately don't have any trips to Europe currently planned, but I still think about where I would like to go the next time I'm able to travel. Here is my current "wish list":

UK: Cornwall (never been), Wales (need to see Aber next time), Scotland (one of my favorite countries, so I need to visit it again)

Ireland: need to see western Ireland

France: Paris (last time I was there I didn't spend nearly enough time)

Russia (never been), Norway (never been), Sweden (never been), Finland (never been) -- I know this would be an expensive trip, but worth it!

Greece: it's been ages since I've been there; time to see how it's changed or stayed the same!

Also, I have yet to delve into Eastern Europe, and I would like to do that someday. However I tend to travel alone, and I'm more hesitant about going to Eastern Europe alone. I don't expect it to be less generally safe, but there will probably be more language barriers, and more (or at least, less familiar) cultural differences.

So, there's my current "wish list"! How about you? Where do you want to go next?
