So, before med school I was thinking about trying to take a trip to Europe. I don't have infinite funds. I was looking at a Eurorail pass that allows you to visit up to five bordering countries and they all seem to be less than $500. I was wondering- those of you who have done something like this or looked into it- how much a person would have to take to spend 1.5-2 months backpacking in Europe? If I do it, I'm planning on not spending a lot on food and staying in hostels... Also, I'm a girl, which sort of concerns me. I don't think traveling alone would be a good idea... Anyone ever done this? I'd love some feedback/advice on money, best places to go, etc.
