I'm planning on taking a trip to Europe, 1 week in Poland and then the rest traveling on trains throughout Europe. How much do you think I would spend? I'm planning on touring and parting as much as I possibly can. Just trying to gauge on how much I would plan on spending.

In US dollars please :)

Flight not included.

have you looked at the interrail web site for a European rail ticket. Have a vague recall that one month all European countries ticket is around £390 (UK pounds, x2 for USD). They do tickets for smaller durations but they may be resttricted to the zones you can travel in. Rest of your costs will vary (big time) but the countries you plan to visit.

Oops sorry, I just remembered that you have to be resident in an EU country to get the tickets I mentioned. If you are from the uS then Rail Pass is appropriate

it depends on where you're going - comparatively, Poland is relatively cheap if you go the Polish route - Imported products cost just about what they do here - for example a liter of Pepsi is 1.00 either here or there. But -(and please don't jump on me) in my opinion, England is VERY expensive (I've heard the same about Spain too but haven't been there). But I guess it's the same everywhere - if you know where to go and what to buy you can do it on a budget. When we go to Poland for 2 weeks, we take about $1,000.00 in cash but we don't stay in hotels (with husband's family) and although we eat out frequently the restaurants are very cheap but we also always have some of the family with us. We do bring back a lot of souviners though.
