after seeing prague, get a train to cesky krumlov, a town in the south czech republic. it's gorgeous, cheap, fun, the perfect place to re-energize.

stay in krumlov house, for sure. there are lots of interesting people, there's a kitchen, and the staff is really nice and helpful.

there's a river that weaves through town, and you can use it as a lazy river, tubing down, then getting out, running across town, and doing it all again. there's a castle and gardens, too. it's just a great place- well worth a visit. i would go back in a second.

the E111 card gives you acess to medical care for free in most cases (or else at a rdeced price) in all EU countries + switzerland (it's an interexchange so this only applies to those having EU or swiss nationality) and it's completely free

Hi,

I'm new to bootsnall and I'd like to start by sharing a few useful tips about Spain.

This is a great web site for finding rural accomodation in Catalonia at reasonabe prices: www.ruralsi.com

I just spent the past few months teaching in Barcelona and used this site to plan weekends and holidays out of the city and for skiing trips.

They've also got quite a bit of info on what there is to do in the region.

Hope you find it useful!

My biggest recommendation is GO TO IRELAND! best place in europe... the people are the nicest people you will see in europe (possibly excluding belgians) and that tiny island has more to see than you could imagine... It's a great place with a brillant vibe!

Also highly recommend my favorite sight in europe - the Plitvica waterfalls in Croatia (located between Zagreb and Zadar). There are, seriously, "heaven on earth". A huge park full of roaring waterfalls, green brilliant scenery, and pools of the most unique shade of blue...

One of my favorite places in the whole world is on the island of Majorca and that is Plama Spain. One of my best memories is eating in a cafe' drinking great coffee and having a wonderful linch. It really doesn't matter which cafe' you do thid in. The sights are fantastic and too numerous to memtion and the beaches are some of the mest in the world. I will be going back on my RTW in the next year or so.

Dear ABCinAT, tell me PLEASE your impressions of Lake Constance!!! I’ve been searching for people’s opinion about the lake for some time now. Is it worth to go to the area if I need a quiet warm and sunny nook of nature to live and write for a couple of weeks?? Oh maybe you could advise me another place for that?

I had a weekend to spend due to working in Germany for a couple of weeks. My coworker who grew up in Munich recommended coming down for the weekend. A couple of internet searches later and I found this place.

It is an old castle, circa 1500s (ish) that has been redone to be a clean lined modern hotel. It is walking distance to the lake, there is a "turkish spa" (small indoor swimming pool) and sauna on site. The grounds are BEAUTIFUL and the staff very helpful and english speaking. The restaurant features foods prepared with the ingredients from their gardens.

Great place. Check out their website:
http://wartegg.ch/

Next stop is a recommendation I found on this thread: "My Salerno Apartment" in Italy...

for all the sh1t ryanair and easyjet get, I just like to say they offer the best european prices, and i have received excellent customer service from both companies this week
(Just don't be legless drunk or late, and they are just fine and never a problem)

Easyjet, having changed the flight time for liverpool into berlin by 5 hours (evening arrival instead off afternoon) they offered a full refund,

we rang up and asked if they could give us a different flight from tallinn into berlin, it was more expensive but they gave it us for free with no amendment fee

Ryanair
for all the bad press they give, i thought i might have to pay a 'change' fee, as i didn't hyphernate my friends name when i booked, they changed it no problem, very friendly and helpfull

Just been to Budapest and I must tell you guys one thing: never eat/drink in a restaurant located on Castle Hill. Everything is VERY expensive! Look for restaurants within the city but not near sightseeing locations.

We spent 5 days at the hostel Pr’ tatko, Podkoren 72, Kranjska Gora, Slovenia and were pleasantly surprised at the welcome we received. The first thing we noticed was the friendliness of the people running the hostel. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the hostel and would have no problem recommending it to others. The hostel is located in wonderful surroundings and has the added bonus of a pub nearby.

The hostel has great views and is situated in a quiet location. The hostel itself has a wealth of character and the rooms are of a good size. We were particularly at home in the kitchen, which provided the opportunity to meet with other people visiting the hostel. We would like to return to Slovenia and would have no problem in coming back to the hostel. Thanks so much for a very enjoyable stay the we will remember for a long time to come.
