in london u got deal real open mic night 1st and 3rd fridays if thats of any interest,

greggs is a chain of sandwhich shops which is probably the easiest way of obtaining free food next to sainsburys.

 

ye make sure you dont buy anything you dont need to on your travels or it could get expensive,

and make sure to get euro inks like grog n corio if u cant get em in america

 

oh and dont forget you phrasebooks!

2. Travel. Get good at 'doubling up' behing people through ticket barriers, travel on the Tube is a fucking rip off, even buying a weeks Travelcard/Bus Pass will still set you back a fair bit. Good answer to this is 'Chinese' travelcards...I'll save the details for a PM I think.

 

pay as u go oyster card that ish.

80p bus off peak.

£1 single on a train.

No Queues.

No registration.

 

All good, unless ur worried about big brother.

Chinese travel card sounds interesting...

Distract, that sounds retardedly nice.

 

What kinda job you have to afford that?

I dont really have a job. Im in school at the moment in the hollidays I work as much as I can, got about $8k in savings and should get about 12 by end of november.

Also I dont think I will be spending too much, because if you work on the mountain you get free food/accomodation/lift pass. So only money will be spend on alcohol and a shitty van we can sleep in when we go to greece

1. go where you have contacts, its fun going toa new spot, but if you have a contact a tour with a local is always better. youll get to see whats up, whats the cheap dope shit to do.

 

2. your eu right? i think you can get a super cheap eurrail pass not the jacked up price non eu pass holders have to pay. look into that. or look at ryanair/easyjet, you can score some turbo deals, and it beats waiting on a train for 15 hours.

 

3. go to copenhagen, its a real dope city. expensive, but a beautiful place.

 

4. go east man, west euro is cool, but the east is nice, and its generally as safe as anywhere else.

 

5. never been to geneva, but basel was cool, fucking expensive though. go to lichtenstein, its the stupidest funniest country in the world.

 

6. dont skip barcelona.

 

7. send me emails about italy. but i reccomend trying your hardest not to pay for trains there, or buying street drugs. load up in amsterdam, its decently cheap, and pretty good stuff, and if your going by rail i wouldnt worry about borders.

 

8. dublin is cool, real expensive though. cool place to check out, i liked the countryside there better. see if you can make it to the bridge jam, its always a good time.

 

9. dont "steal" unlocked bicycles in germany.

 

10. dont eat the hot dogs in front of the eiffel tower at midnight even if there isnt anything else open. esecially if your a vegetarian. paris is cool, dont get it twisted, i met some of the nicest people in my travels in paris.

 

11. buy some tight jeans and get a mullet in barcelona, put one dreadlock in it as well. drink don simon sangria, and make paella, the shit on ramblas is horrible. make lots of itme for that city. and wander around it, its fantastic.

 

12. see smaller cities in holland, utrecht, rotterdam, eindhoven are really cool places, less stupid college kids and wierdo english sex tourists wacked out on drugs trying to bang hookers. if your in amsterdam, theres a chinese restaurant that is all tiled and looks like a gym shower room, but has dope food. apparently the duck is great. eat turkish pizza in holland...

 

13. have a smoke and ride the metro to a wierd stop getoff and wander. always proves to be fun. europe isnt unsafe. well italy can be, but dont carry more than you can afford to lose. just bring a visa and a back card, youll get better rates using an atm. ivenever had an atmnot accept my card on mainland europe... only america it wont read it.

Pushing two through on one fare on the tube is a silly idea..

 

First off, it's not a literal "turn"stile...

Second off , you need a ticket to get out as well as in, so you'd need to push through twice..

Third, there's station attendants all over the gates at every station and more cameras than George Orwell could imagine..

 

 

You want to save money, use one of the suggested Oyster tickets or buy a one-week 8£ unlimited bus pass.. the tube is really only good for long treks and rush-hour anyway..

And if you REALLY want to get around a nice way and save money, rent or "acquire" a bike..

--If you buy a train pass as an EU citizen, you get the forementioned "InterRail Pass" which is cheaper but comes with a small handful of limitations..

As far Plane v. Train.. the plane does'nt necessarily save time or money..

factor in the time *and money* it will take you to get to and from the Airports to/from the centre of the cities.. where as the train leaves you dead center in the middle of the city..

Also consider that taking an overnight train means you won't need to spend money on a hotel room that night..

Furthermore.. as great as it is, RyanAir, with few exceptions, only flies to off-beat airports of major cities.. and/or small cities..

 

 

 

 

4. go east man, west euro is cool, but the east is nice, and its generally as safe as anywhere else.

 

You should see both, they're truely distinct..

For the record though, Polish trains are straight dangerous.. watch your shit..

 

5. never been to geneva, but basel was cool, fucking expensive though.

Geneve is great~ beautiful city that is hard to grasp, but well worth a couple of days~

I love french Switzerland~

 

6. dont skip barcelona.

AT ANY COST!

 

 

10. dont eat the hot dogs in front of the eiffel tower at midnight even if there isnt anything else open. esecially if your a vegetarian. paris is cool, dont get it twisted, i met some of the nicest people in my travels in paris...

 

Paris is unexplicable~ but definately watch the street meat anywhere and everywhere..

IF you're hungry infront of the Effiel Tower, buy a Goffre (Waffle) they have a great stand near the Trocadero on it's eastern approach

stick with Shawarma for quick cheap eats.. and go to the popular and truely arabic ones..

 

 

11. buy some tight jeans and get a mullet in barcelona, put one dreadlock in it as well. drink don simon sangria, and make paella, the shit on ramblas is horrible. make lots of itme for that city. and wander around it, its fantastic.

 

Go to the Gracia area near Joanic train station~ it's the off-beat hot spiznot for the BCN youtes.. And DEFINATELY hike up Montjuic~ that is a MUST

Also, if you do get tight jeans and a mullet.. definately go with the dreadlock too..

also get one of those hamas rags and tie it around your neck.. Oh! and get a dog to walk around with!

 

12. see smaller cities in holland, utrecht, rotterdam, eindhoven are really cool places, less stupid college kids and wierdo english sex tourists wacked out on drugs trying to bang hookers!!!

 

Well put~ Rent a bike in Amsterdam~! It's the ONLY way~

 

 

 

This guy has great tips~
