1. Essayez le couchsurfing.

2. Si vous ne recevez pas d'hôtes sur couchsurfing ou si vous n'êtes pas à l'aise pour l'utiliser, vous devriez vivre dans des auberges de jeunesse. Utilisez Hostels (dot) com Bons plans sur les auberges de jeunesse n'importe où!Ou réservation (point) com Booking.com: hôtels 907,097 dans le monde entier. Réservez votre hôtel maintenant! or Location de vacances - Maisons, appartements et chambres - Airbnb est une option moins chère. Je fais habituellement 30 cent nuit de voyage dans tous mes voyages pour économiser de l’argent sur les hôtels.

3. Essayez de trouver des auberges avec cuisine pour pouvoir vous préparer votre propre nourriture, achetez des produits dans les supermarchés et prenez le petit déjeuner tous les jours avant de partir, pour économiser un peu d’argent au début de votre journée. Demandez aux habitants de manger à bas prix, ne payez pas trop dans un restaurant.

4. Utilisez les transports en commun. Toutes les villes ont des laissez-passer urbains et des laissez-passer de transport pour les jours 1 / 2 / 3 ou plus, achetez-les et utilisez-les comme des locaux. (Un transport public aller simple à Prague coûte environ un euro, mais j’ai acheté un pass journalier 1 en euros 5. Je l’ai utilisé au moins 10 fois ce jour-là. Un trajet en métro aller simple coûte 1.80 euros à Paris, tandis qu’un pass journalier 1 coûte environ 1 euro. 11 euros).

5. Les taxis sont un gros NOOOOOO. Vous pouvez littéralement économiser des centaines de dollars et les transports en commun sont le véritable moyen d'explorer n'importe quelle ville.

6. Cliquez sur ce lien ou sur Google pour trouver des entrées gratuites dans certains musées et autres attractions si vous êtes sur place aux mêmes dates ou certains dimanches. Le guide ultime de ce qui est gratuit en Europe - TripAdvisChoseog essayez également de ne pas dépenser d'argent dans toutes les attractions (par exemple, pour moi, m'asseoir dans le jardin près de la tour Eiffel était bien plus amusant que de payer dessus en payant quelques euros 12)

7. D'après mon expérience, les bus sont les moins chers en Europe. Consultez les sites megabus, flixbus, eurolines, polskibus, ecolines ou utilisez ce site Web de goeuro pour comparer tous les modes de transport. Recherchez et comparez les bus, trains et vols pas chers Choisissez la nuit dans les bus / trains pour les tarifs les plus bas. Vous pouvez même essayer Covoiturage de confiance.

8. Explorez par vous-même. Demandez au personnel de l'auberge ou utilisez TripAdvisor pour voir ce qui vous intéresse dans une ville particulière, puis allez-y par vous-même Croyez-moi, il vaut mieux acheter des visites coûteuses.

9. Ne dépensez pas beaucoup pour l'alcool, qui en a besoin lors d'un voyage !!!

10. Transiger de l'argent directement à partir de la carte de débit est un meilleur moyen que de convertir de l'argent en devise locale.

11. Utilisez des applications telles que Whatsapp, Viber, Messagerie Internet, DMI, Dingtone, Primo, Whatscall pour appeler gratuitement n'importe où à l'étranger.

What are some tips, tricks, or must sees while backpacking Europe?

Quelques conseils généraux.

  1. Pack léger, très léger.
  2. Dans le vol, ne jamais enregistrer les bagages pour vos voyages avec sac à dos, votre bagage à main d'environ 10 kg devrait être suffisant pour un voyage pouvant durer jusqu'à un mois.
  3. Voyager avec un groupe ou un partenaire, ce sera plus facile et plus agréable.
  4. Si vous êtes seul, restez dans les auberges, vous vous ferez des amis plus vite que vous ne le pensez.
  5. Ne tombez pas dans les pièges à touristes.
  6. Gardez le portefeuille dans la poche avant.
  7. Conservez des photos de votre visa, passeport et autres documents requis dans votre téléphone.
  8. Achetez une banque de puissance.
  9. Lisez les guides touristiques des villes que vous visitez.
  10. Évitez les restaurants chers et essayez la nourriture locale.
  11. Ne gardez pas tout l'argent au même endroit. gardez-en dans votre portefeuille, d'autres dans votre sac et un peu dans la quatrième de couverture de votre mobile.
  12. Buvez de manière responsable.
  13. N'oubliez pas vos médicaments.

14. Soyez attentif et ne vous laissez pas fasciner par les nouveautés que vous voyez, n’oubliez pas votre sac où que vous soyez.

Therevarev anlotn of Answers on this question you can check on. Also google for Euro and backpacking tips.

Here are a few of mine: Learning to Travel: Travel is one of the greatest education systems there is. If you travel you learn history, culture, food, entertainment, sports, work, politics, economics, language and people. All of these can add up to a wonderful way to really learn about the real world first hand. You discover much about yourself as well, how you handle both easy, fun things that are new to you and difficulties that sometimes make you wish you stayed home. But later you realize , WOW! I got through that and learn something from it.

Transférez-vous ces gains dans le portefeuille bitcoin?

You overcome your fear two ways (my personal suggestions), first start simple, learn about where you live, look up the history, check the different cultures, entertainment and foods available at the many tests and special events in your city. Meet new people, make new friends. Go to different areas and note how they appear compared to your living area.

Take local hikes in nearby countryside also. When you go somewhere ask locals where they eat, not the tourist places or the junk food, go where they enjoy good food.

Second, You now have some basic experience that many people never think of doing, discovering their own city. Now spread out, another city, another state, do the the same things. Eventually, usually sooner than later you want to go to really different, far away places.

Always go on line and do some basic research, take pics, make notes, you will soon want to travel the world.

MORE: 1- Is your passport up to date

2- Do you have enough money for approx. how many days, how many days will you be there, counting travel days and be aware of the time difference

3- Do you have a Good DEBIT Card with a good Balance - these are the safest way to take your money when traveling. You use at Bank ATMs and draw as needed

4- Do you need a VISA on your Passport, some people do

5- Have you checked for best priced flights round trip

6- Be aware many travelers will sometimes want to be your friend. Then a small loan promising to repay (don’t loan) or is so hungry, be a nice guy and you’ll be broke fast. Do not wave money around, or a Debit, Credit Card - it’s no ones’s business but yours

7- Have you made a basic trip plan where to go, what to see, etc - A Round About is a good way to go, you Land and Depart from same Airport. You make your plan so you can go (not in a perfect circle) from one to the next city, then the next and so on

8- Do you know about Eurorail, check it out for your in Europe travel. You can save at times if one place is far enough away to take a night train by not staying in a hotel or hostel

9- You can Research all of this on line. Google for City, Train, Hotel/Hostel, Bank ATMs, Places to Visit, Beaches, Ferry’s, Entertainment, The Cost, etc

10- Travel light, Pad, Good Camera, Cell Phone, buy a throwaway with enough $$$ on it to make whatever calls internationally when you get there. BackPack it and remember this, most anything you can think you might need or just want to take, you can buy it there. Stay light and if you do get overloaded, mail stuff home

11- If you are reasonably well to do financially, see a Travel Agent and let them set it all up by the numbers

Profitez-en!

From your list, I’ve been everywhere except London. My tips are as follows:

  • If you don’t already have it, download Couchsurfing App. It’s a great way to meet new people while travelling. It’s especially useful if you’re travelling alone and want to party or see the sights or have a coffee with someone.
  • Don’t exchange too much currency beforehand. Instead, look out for a place having a good exchange rate once you reach your destination, away from the tourist areas. You may have to walk around a bit. During my travels, I marked each currency exchange place in my Google Maps app, and note down the exchange rate and commission charges for each place as I explored the city. At the end of the day, I would go back to the one with the best rate.
  • Download an offline map (This is a good one) of the places you are visiting. This way you save money on internet data charges, and you can find your way around easily.
  • Generally, the worst places to eat are right next to the tourist places. They tend to be over-priced and the food isn’t really that great. For the best options, ask natives where they eat. Everywhere I travelled, I asked the locals for their recommendation and I have had the best meals at great prices.
  • Ask the proprietor of whatever restaurant or bar you’re in for their wi-fi password, even if they haven’t mentioned free wi-fi. As long as you are a paying customer, no one will refuse you access to their wi-fi. Use this opportunity to catch up on your Facebook, emails, Whatsapp messages, Instagram, reorient yourself with Google maps etc.
  • Depending on how long you plan on being at each city, you might consider buying a public transport pack or tourist ticket. This way you can have any number of trips on the bus, metro, tram and whatever other combination they have. They have different validities for 24 hours, 2 days, 3 days and so on. You save way more money than buying an individual ticket each time.
  • Although this may seem obvious, do take good care of your cash and passport. I always keep my passport, ID card and debit card in a money belt that I wear under my shirt, and only keep a small amount of cash in my wallet. I know quite a number of people who have had their wallets stolen while travelling.

As for must sees and must dos, I’ll speak about Madrid and Barcelona in more detail because I’ve lived in both these cities for a while. Of course, there are a lot of things worth seeing in every place, but I’ve only mentioned those that I feel you should absolutely see.

Madrid

  • Puerta del Sol - The heart of Madrid, with a good selection of bars, restaurants and pastry shops. La Mallorquina is an institute, one of the best places to have pastries. San Gines is another Madrid institute, this one for churros. Not far away is Café Iris, where they serve a bucket of 5 beers for 4€. WokToWalk right next La Mallorquina has good vegetarian noodle options.
  • Plaza Mayor right next to Sol isn’t really worth it in my opinion. It’s just full of over-priced restaurants. But the area surrounding it is worth exploring.
  • Retiro Park - Definitely worth a visit. It’s a beautifully done park, great for just sitting on a bench and reading, or cycling. It’s also quite large, with a small lake for boating (not really a lake as much as a pond).
  • The museums - Whether Prado or Thyssen Bornemisza, they are all gorgeous, but I especially love Prado. On public holidays you have free entry to the museums.
  • Walking around Gran Via, and checking out Chueca - Gran Via is a major street lined with shops on either side, some luxury brands, others chain stores like H&M and Primark, while others are stand alone shops which are really affordable. If you need to buy new gloves, or get an umbrella, or a new pair of sunglasses, you’ll definitely find something that suits your budget and style here. Chueca is Madrid’s gay neighbourhood, and is right in the heart of the old city. It has a great array of fantastic buildings, plus an good collection of bars, restaurants and shops.

Barcelone

  • Sagrada Familia - It is truly beautiful, and it is worth seeing it from the inside. It took my breath away when I first saw it.
  • Bunkers - In the mountains surrounding Barcelona, there is aplace called Bunkers del Carmel which offers some of the best views of Barcelona, along with the Mediterranean sea. You can see everything form up here, and plenty of people come here along with food and drinks. It’s especially popular amongst young people during the evening / night, and they gather here with wine, beers etc. and have a great time.
  • Gothic Quarters - The gothic neighbourhood is a great place to wander around. It’s also got some of the best bars and restaurants. Guaranteed you’ll find something that you love. Plus it is easy to walk down to the sea from there.
  • Rambla de Poble Nou - The more famous rambla is Poble Sec, but if you get overwhelmed by the crowds there, head on to Poble Nou in the east. It’s got a more family-friendly ambience and it doesn’t stay open until the wee hours of the morning, but it has a great selection of places to eat, and it’s generally possible to find a less crowded section of beach here.
  • Generally there’s a meetup every Friday at 7 PM in a bar called Berenjenal. There’s one free drink for just showing up (a gin and tonic or beer). Right next to Berenjenal bar is a place that sells food for 1€.
  • When I was living in Barcelona, they used to have free concerts at 7 PM on Thursdays in Parc de la Ciutadella. These aren’t rock concerts mind you, but if you’re into classical music you can check it out.
  • Next to the park is Taco Alto, where they serve some of the best tacos I have ever eaten. A must stop in my opinion.
  • Many of Barcelona’s museums have free entry on the first Sunday of every month.

In both Madrid and Barcelona, 100 Montaditos is a great place to have cheep beer (1€ for a caña) and food (1€ for finger foods, breakfast for 1.80€ which includes coffee, toast with olive oil and tomatoes, and serrano ham).

As for the other places, do try the following:

Berliner Luft in Berlin - It’s a peppermint liqueur that is a Berlin drink. Not everyone likes it mind you, but I loved it.

Szimpla in Budapest - Szimpla Kert has a ruin pub in the most eclectic environment…a mismatch of everything. It has a bar, in the morning a market opens up there, and at night it’s filled with party goers chugging beers or smoking hookahs. A must see for every tourist.

Pretty much everything in Rome, but a trip to the Vatican is a must! It is absolutely gorgeous! A tour of the Vatican museum is a priceless. And I really enjoyed my dinner ay Barnum’s Cafe in Campo de Fiori.

As for Paris, I found the view from the Champs Elysee more beautiful than from the top of the Eiffel Tower. As it’s not as high as the Eiffel Tower, you could still see in greater detail, and the crowd was way less intimidating than at the Eiffel Tower. The macroons are delicious too.

Venice has some good sights, but I’d choose any other place apart from that - Florence, Sienna, the Amalfi coast.

Just read your travel destination list. I have been to loads of places in Europe (I live here) and your list covers most of my favourite places ��

If you have to cut down, I’d take Barcelona over Madrid (that way you have a beach on your travel list) and focus more on Rome than Venice. Venice is pretty but overrated in my opinion. And Rome is sooo beautiful with so so so much to explore. Leave Paris, Berlin, London and Budapest definitely in that list ��

Allow yourself to enjoy the surprise.

I’m a planner, I like to have my accommodation sorted in advance, I like to know what my transport options are. I like to know what other peoples top picks for a city or country are. But sometimes you have to just junk that.

I flew into Bergamo late at night because it was cheap, I stayed there because it was cheap, my plan was to go to Milan for the day. But when I looked out my window in the morning and saw the prettiest walled town you can imagine on the hill. I said sorry Milan, I’m sure your beautiful, but I want to see this.

If, like me, you are a planner, don’t become a slave to the plan. If you are wandering around Venice and stick your nose into a beautiful parish church, don’t go rushing off to St Mark’s. Stay relax, enjoy the beautiful stain glass windows.
