    This. Although I would recommend heading east, not that I have been in Central or Eastern Europe, but you may want to see the stronger contrast in cultures, food and architecture. Those are the reasons I like to travel.

    /If you go to Spain do NOT cross to Morocco at Tangier. Its worse than going to Tijuana. Cross over to Rabat or Casablanca. Random tangent done.

    toss a coin icon_cool.gif

    Both are fantastic
    Paris - Berlin - Copenhagen - Stockholm would be stunning to see

    and then South is just as good

    Paris - Barcelona (Sitges) - South of France Provence San Tropez - Rome - The Amalfi Coast

    You don't mention the dates. Northern Europe has a late spring. I'd recommend Berlin, which is very gay downtown, but not before it warms around June or July.

    I agree, you need to give dates. Spain is quite nice, but if you are coming for the beaches at all then they aren't really nice to go to until may or june. If you just want culture and really nice towns, then you can come to Spain whenever, it just stays a little bit cooler before May, but really hot when July and August come around, so site seeing in towns, rather than going to the beach can be quite difficult.

    if you're gonna go to Poland at all then check out Krakow while you're there. i've heard lotsa good things bout it though i havent gone myself. warsaw is getting nicer all the time but krakow is the more "beautiful" city with more historical stuff to check out.

    poland all the way. krakow, warsaw, gdansk, poznan, wroclaw... all beautiful, fun cities, with hot guys, fun parties, fascinating (though tragic) history, incredible food, and all at a price way less than western europe/

    nice i didnt even think about the beaches but that sounds good, my flight leaves at 9pm from new york on may 25th putting me in heathrow at 9 am on the 26th. ill be there till june 15th technically but ill most likely stay later if i fall in love with a city.

    im def hitting up ibiza, i hear its madness.
    i love culture so i want the local experience but im also looking for the best parties and some good old touristy things to do as well.


    also, do they have gay prostitutes in amsterdam, because thats something that i might have to hit up just to add to the list of things ive done.

    cross off, sleep with hooker. lol

    Cambridge, Cambridgeshire is a must. If you require a hand punting i would be more than happy to assist you. Yes the term is Punting... google it, why not?

    As a navy brat I used to live in Europe.

    I have to say Belgium Rocks.

    I'd recommend Anything in the northern part like Brussels or Antwerpen.
    People are nice there.

    Paris yes, southern France as a backpacker no. Just my opinion though.

    Ibiza is just a waste of time, since you are not going there in summer.

    During Fall and Winter it's worst than any lost village in Transylvania... icon_rolleyes.gif

    As much as I love Paris (really - check out Pere Lachaise, and visit Oscar Wilde!!)

    Berlin is bloody amazing.

    Give cambridge a miss, Oxford is way more genuine and interesting, even though the university is less cool.
