Just curious as to what the average cost per day is roughly in various parts of Europe. I really don't mind slumming it and sleeping pretty much anywhere, and eat anything as long as its cheap and doesnt make my tummy feel icky. And by slummin it I mean is it possible to live for 10-20 CAN dollars a day? thanks and toodles! Reply to this

I think there are definitely other threads in this forum on a topic so if you do a search you'll find tons of good information on daily budget, I think under the "Travel guide" too.

semi-short answer to your question, as canadian to fellow canadian: there is no way you can live on 10-20 cdn per day in europe. The canadian dollar isn't worth very much. I think its takes about 1.6 dollars canadian to each euro. MAYBE 10-20 euros if you do absolutely nothing (no sightseeing that you pay to go see and walk everywhere) and you're lucky enough to couch surf each day you're in europe.
I realize that you're on a tight budget but there's really no point in going to europe if you can't afford it. I would take a look at your finances, see how much you have and potentially cut your trip shorter so you can enjoy more on the time you're there or think about getting a working holiday visa so you can work while in europe.
There's a certain liberation in not having much money in travelling but it limits your options severely and you generally don't get treated well if your hygiene declines and you look shabby from going low low budget.
If you really have itchy feet and are dying to travel, consider going to somewhere like Thailand where its fine for a first time backpacker and your money goes a lot farther there and you can travel longer and eat better.

Thanks for your reply! And just to clarify I wanted to go el-cheepo but I do have what I thinkand hope to be a decent amount of for a trip atm. I have about 10k atm, and at the near end of the summer prob. 14k, which I hope (god forbid if its not) is enough to dot my way across europe for a few months, I figured about 5-6, is that a bit to zealous? Anyways I have been checking out alternatives, Thialand is looking more and more appealing both cost wise, and its kinda got that Road less travelled feel. Anyways thanks for the quick reply. TTFN.

I'd say for a good time round Europe your looking at between 40 and 60 euros a day. Reply to this
