Hi there, I've been waiting to query the MeFi hive this question for a long time now. I've seen some excellent advice for people travelling to foreign countries for the first time so, here's my turn.
This is my first time in Europe. I would like some advice and support that would help me save money and make the most of my stay there.
I'd greatly appreciate any help, here is what is on my mind right now:
- Getting there
Arrival in Frankfurt/Hamburg Airport (i'm not sure which city yet) - Names of cheap accomodation to stay for a night? Best way to get to Bremen?
- Things to do in free time
in and around Bremen. I'm interested in experiencing the culture first-hand. I support Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga. Movies, etc, what are the fun things to do around that time of year, winter activities?
How should I carry my money, card/cash?
Food - monthly, daily, practical amount. Low limit - high limit?
General - travel and sightseeing
Ways I can save greatly
Additional hidden expenses?
- Traveling around Germany
What's the best and most cost efficient way to do this? What are the restrictions on visiting bordering countries e.g. Netherlands for the weekend?
- Places to stay
If i want to stay on for a few days, possible accomodation- couch surfing etc?
Lastly, what are the things i should be aware of before setting out on this solo trip?
