I want to exercise intensely but have neither free weights nor a good place to workout.

I am traveling in Europe for several months and want to stay in shape while I'm away. At home, I go to the gym almost everyday and try to work out pretty intensely (I like to do kickboxing, weight training, running, etc.) but there is, sadly, no gym near where I'm at now. I've been trying to run outside a few times a week but A) it rains a lot; B) I'm getting bored; and C) I just don't feel like I'm ever getting THAT good of a workout.
I've been trying to supplement running with doing exercise videos online. The problem is that I don't have any free weights AND I have downstairs neighbors and an old apartment building, so anything involving jumping is out of the question.
My question is whether there is, in fact, any way to get a really good workout sans weights or jumping and, if so, whether anyone can recommend particular routines or online videos. I'd be willing to pay for said video.
Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions.
