I did it in New York. Super cheap. Had a wonderful time. Got to do and see more then I expected.
Im gearing up this year to do another trip. This time im going across the ocean.
One major important pit stop to Budapest to see Nimh
In fact that is what sprung the idea in the first place.
Now I am thinking.... since I will be over there anyway, why not see more.
I would like to see Sweden and Germany. I dont care WHERE in the country I go either. I just would like to see them.
I have found vacation rental sites like www dot vrbo dot com. ( spelled so as to not make this thread an ad for it!
But that seems to be geared to people who will be staying for a month or so on end.
My time will probably cap about about 2 weeks, maybe 3 total .
A few nights in other countries, a week or more in Budapest.
So... how can I do this for cheap?
Just like I did in N, I want the cheapest place to stay. My vacation is NOT about room amenities. A youth hostel served as just what I needed in NY... are there places like that in Sweden? I see that the dollar carries no weight there.. the conversion is 7 dollars to not quite one Kronor.. Aiiyee yiee yiiieee.. And of course, i wanna go to Stockholm. The central hub and the most expensive. Blah. But, I am sure I can make this work.
Travel between countries.. ? Another question.
cheaper.. train? or flight? Most countries look like they could be reached with about 2 hours or less in the air.. should make for cheap flights right?
I use igougo to find cheap international flights.. I see that I can look between countries too.. Is there a known budget airlines in europe? Like here.. airtran is one.. Frontier another..etc..
I gotta get a passport.
