a good neck pillow for the long hours on the bus, anywhere up to 8 or 9 hours on the bus with stops every 2 hours breaks arnt long, but you do stop at petrol stations which are similar to road houses but are more elaborate. Our group seemed to live off pringles, never touching them again lol. and stock up on water as you’ll need it. so once you get to a place find a supermarket and stock up on snacks and drinks and stuff.
luggage you’ll be dragging it around pretty much every day, make sure if your going out on the town at night, before you go out to have it packed and ready for the next day. suitcases backpacks, doesnt matter what you take. there are lifts in most of the hotels but be prepaird to use stairs thery’ll be a lot of them.
The hotels, are alright, there only a base, as for the bathrooms in some places be prepaired for a box style set up.
Highlights were Nice, you have to go to waynes bar in the old town.
Monaco for the casinos,
Pag island, is just out of this world. hire mopeds and tear up the island. good for partying when not raining
Italy, you can take it or leave it. Venice is really nice. florence is good as well, Rome, is like paris its really busy like london.
Switzerland: its a lot of walking to the hotel. but lucerne is just awesome
Slovenia is different not a great town, good to shop. try horse
Prague: the best place ever. loved it so much, we want to go back. theres a 5 story nightclub, didnt get to go wasnt well for it.
Austria: Um take tissues, you’ll need them
Germany: walking tour is pretty good. as for the hofbrauhaus thats a must
Amsterdam: excellent, the cafes are a must and the sex show is just hilarous.
Just remember to keep your bag you take out for the day zipped up, weather it be a handbag or a backpack, keep it close to you, if its a handbag keep it close to the wall not the street, pick pocketers are very clever. also be prepaired for lots of beggers, street sellers, children and gypsys, there around.
You’ll be forever bumping into other tour groups as well.
With your washing. We pretty much did in on the days we had 2 days in each country, it did mean missing out on things but stuff like that needed to be done. Its cheap in nice but got expensive in venice and Germany. up to 15 euro to washing. all are walking distance from the hotel. the hotel in switzerland offer washing and its cheap.
Enjoy it party hard and get to know ur travel mates. its a life time of fun and memorys. Our times on the bus were never boring.
