Another tip: when going to an ATM, don't pick bills of 100 euro or higher since a lot of stores don't accept these (at least in Belgium that is). Indeed carry something for coins cause you'll end up having loads of them :)

Thanks a lot for this helpful information! I was always missing my errands, shopping and many other simple things in life and the result is that , all used to make fun of me and i was called almost a looser! luckily, one of colleague introduced me to "listall" mobile app by lokesh which helps in managing 8 different and important type of lists in life.  Now, I am much more organized and people now call me effective person! I cant believe it

Oh my god, the fanny pack is only for those of you who want to look like the stereotypical obnoxious american tourist. Leave it at home.

Hello, have you heard about "Reveal Travel Deal"? Just head over to their website at RevealTravelDeal.com I have come across numerous ridiculously inexpensive deluxe hotels as well as flight tickets. This may allow you to save cash on your future vacation as well.

An additional tip if you are traveling to a major Eastern European tourist destination like Budapest: bring some Benedryl or Dramamine. These common anti-histamines (also used as sleep aids) are not readily available in Eastern Europe as they are in the USA or Western European destinations.

I'm not confused at all! I've traveled on trains and roads in Europe also! I can't see how your reply really pertains to my comment! It may be a bit of a hassle putting on and taking off a backpack but once it's on your back you're ready to go! Small doorways may be a problem but I think it can just add to the adventure with a funny story! I would not enjoy having to pull a suitcase behind me!

Depends on where you go in Europe.
TheGoldenRoses (5 years ago)
Personally, I think that a backpack is only necessary if you do not have a hotel you stay at. If you DO have a hotel, you can easily take a suitcase with you and leave it there for the time you stay there; you would only have to get it to the hotel, which really isn´t all that difficult. ;)

ya this information video is most likely for the "luxury travel" kinds of people who wouldnt be caught dead carrying a backpack into their fancy hotels

NEVER USE WHEELED LUGGAGE !!!!!!! YOU'LL STAND OUT AS THE VILLAGE IDIOT. COBBLESTONE STREETS WILL BE A PAIN FOR YOU TOO. WE USE BACKPACKS AND SHOULDER SATCHELS AND TOTES .... EXPERIENCED TRAVELERS never USE WHEELED LUGGAGE

I'm a American, living in Europe (mostly Germany) for over 20 years now and let me tell you: Just come to Europe! If you are not a totally stupid person, you will have no problems over here. Just please don't act as if Europe was the deepest jungle. Europe intellectually at least equal to the US

@Siobanphotogirl i totally agree. i live in slovenia and in april we went on a school trip to venice ( its like 2 hours from slovenia) and we laught so hard when we saw some americans with wheeled luggage trying to get to their hotel .it was sad to watch hahahha
Jan Tourkov (8 years ago)
What's the point of this? Europe is a much safer place than the USA. Just come across the pond and don't be so scared.

@sweetncool i agree with Mr. Hypnofan totally... a backpack is best. Cobblestone streets are rampant in Europe..and so are crowds! People will trip over your wheeled luggage and the wheeled suitcases can flip over on the uneven cobblestones. Think of Venice... you've seen pictures of Venice, right? lots, lots, LOTS of little bridges with steps at both ends! it would not be fun lugging wheeled luggage over those bridges. BACKPACK! gotta go with the BACKPACK!
MrHypnofan (8 years ago)
@sweetncool They add weight that could be put to actual things, also, there are still a lot towns that have original cobblestone roads and steep and narrow stairs. Wheels would not be beneficial in these cases. And the bags themselves are more rigid, so you can't easily shove them into the overhead been or under the seat in front of you.

@iRaymondAZ why not?? please tell :)
