2. Choose your destination.
Sounds easy right? wrong. There are many places to visit in Europe, from city breaks to beach holidays.

However you my find that your mind will be far more at ease if you decide pre-hand what you would like to spend on this holiday. Maybe start of with a £500 budget for flights, accommodation, transfers and holiday insurance. You will probably find that you can get an all-inclusive or bed & breakfast 4-5 star holiday with this price, based on 2 people. Take a look at holiday comparison site www.icelolly.com and see what tickles your fancy.
You have landed in a beautiful country, the sun is shining, and you are about to embark on your journey, do you hail a local taxi? Do you ride the subway? Do you hike it to your hotel/villa/hostel? The answer is NO! You should have thought about this before you left.You can use websites such as GoEuro to compare and plan your transportation before you land. Type in your to and from destination and let them do the rest. Give it try.
As you will see, it’s not that hard is it? A visit to Lonely Planet is always useful too, however be aware that some of the comments holidays can sometimes be written by a holiday maker who was compelled with enough velocity to complain and write a bad comment, because if you are someone like me, then if the holiday is good, that’s it. I really do not have time to go back to a site and write a good review.
