My first sort-of-solo Europe trip was about to end way before it started. We were all packed to leave and decked up at the airport only to find out one of ours ticket was invalid. My best friend and I, both 22, didn't know what we had signed up for.
That's how our 16 day long Europe trip started. With a bang.
With inputs from a lot of close friends who'd gone to Europe for Exchange programs and a lot of research and revisions later, we landed up on our very own innovative itinerary:
13th - Delhi to Rome via Sri Lankan Airlines - Fare - 16,000
14th - 15th - Rome & Vatican City
16th morning - Rome to Budapest via Wizz Air
16 - 17th - Budapest
18th morning - Budapest to Prague via Train (6 hours)
20th evening - Prague to Barcelona via British Airways - Fare - 6000
23rd evening - Barcelona to Porto via Vueling Airlines
26th - Porto to Lisbon via Bus (4 hours)
29th - Lisbon to Delhi - KLM + Jet Airways - Fare - 26,000
