I've booked the start of my trip London -> Berlin with Ryanair, was the cheapest. :P

One question I have, anyone know the cheapest option for Paris -> London? Everything seems so expensive. :undecided:

Eurostar's probably the best bet isn't it?

O.P. RE: Nile's summer euro tour 2010
could have been a typo i'm blogging from my phone i stayed in a hotel in Poland that was it, I stayed in a hostel in Prague and Amsterdam (where I am now) I leave Amsterdam today for Belgium to the Graspop Festival around lunch time I guess

Well the journeys I've been taking have been pretty epic, sure i could break them down but it would take more time and for time dependant things (friends, festivals) they can't wait for you.

I can agree with cookie the sleepers are only on long haul night trains if you were travelling from 7PM to 2AM you probably wouldn't have one unless the train was continuing through till 10AM or something. The trains in the west side of Europe  (Germany, Amsterdam, Belgium etc) are much nicer than the trains in the more eastern countries so far.

WiFi is everywhere but not so much is friendly with an iPhone :( theres a lot i can connect to but then nothing will resolve or update (and I can't gain an IP address)

Overall it's fun, so far the hostels though still aren't cheap (Prague was cheaper than Amsterdam though), I'm at the Flying Pig in Amsterdam at the moment it does have a good atmosphere but as you can imagine 99% of the people are wrecked off weed and/or booze I'm staying in a double connected room with double bunk beds that sleeps 32 and that was 42 for a bed that sleeps 2.

Old Prague Hostel was a 4 person room for about 30 (they use different currency than euro)

Still any questions? or want to meet? send me a text, Tips for hostel so far, use the lockers, they have free safe's for small valuables behind reception usually. If you want, sleep with your most valuable either on your person or hidden in your pillow (in your jeans too)

That's unfortunate. I'll be taking my netbook + charger if I can fit it.

That can't be right - on hostelbookers.com it says Old Prague Hostel is 17-21. We're staying at Sir Toby's Hostel or Hostel Rosemary which is around same price.

Thanks for the tips. (Y)

One question I have, sorry I don't have any phone credit: Presuming you took a flight to Europe, did you just take a backpack? Taking any more than carry-on has a hefty charge on cheap flights. Hope I can fit everything.
