Hey gurus. So I'm hard at work (NOT) during the olympics right now and my wife and I decided that it's time for us to take another extended holiday, and so we're setting our sights for Europe. On our last trip to SE Asia we found ourselves after that in Greece, Hungary, Croatia and Germany. This time, we want to hit up England, France, Holland, and Spain (not in this order). However the more I look at costs, the more I'm punched in the face by the reality of how expensive this could end up being for us. So since there are many Europeans on this site, I figure you all will have some good tips or facts that may be valuable to our plans. Primarily I'm wondering if there is a way to actually do these countries on a shoestring, and if so, what kind of quality of travel or accomodations could be expected. Also, where would be the "must see" places in each country, and what are some ways that we could really take some of the costs down. I'm not cheap, just focused on the cost of everything since our Canadian dollar converted into Euros just gets crippled so badly with the exchange. Thanks for any advice given!!!!
