    Help: How do I plan a 2 month budget backpacking trip in Europe please? 30th Dec 17 at 1:08 PM
    Hello all,

    I am a little overwhelmed with how to approach taking a 2 month break in Europe next summer on a budget.

    My plan is to visit countries such as Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Malta, Norway in the two month period.

    My aim is to explore the outdoors, nice architecture etc.

    I am happy to do hostels, bed and breakfasts, rooms in a house. All I ask for is a warm shower and a bit of privacy where I can get sleep for 8hrs a night.

    Breakfast, lunches, and dinner would be cheap and practical or something I can make in my place before setting off for the day.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to plan?

    And how much it would roughly cost for a trip such as this?

    Even if your itinerary is not the same, if you have done a trip recently any indications on how much it cost you would be great as an indicator.

The AI was fine as it meant minimal spending, but the meals for the B&B would have run up quickly had we not tucked into delicious freshly baked pastizzi @ 30 cents a go for lunch. IF you've not been back since Malta entered the EU then you'll notice a big mark-up next time you visit.

    First time I went to Malta was in 1974 with the RN. Our ship was day running out of Valletta Harbour for 3 months. I know progress is progress, but I think Malta's progress has been the wrong sort.
