What is the best way to take lots of pictures while travelling in Europe without bringing a laptop to store them?

This summer I will be spending two months travelling around Germany, France, Italy, and maybe a few other countries, staying in youth hostels. I love to take pictures and when I travel I can easily take 100 a day. This is fine as long as I have a computer nearby to dump the photos into every night. But I am not planning on bringing a laptop.
I have never been to Europe but I have heard that internet access is not difficult to find in the places I will be, using internet cafes and hostels and such. But what are the prospects such computers would play nice with my digital camera and allow me to offload photos? And would uploading huge batches of these photos to a remote server be practical?
Alternatives I'm considering are buying a really big memory card (or several big cards), or else using a traditional film camera, which would be an adjustment for sure. Are there other options? What else have people done?
