So where would you guys reccomend a bunch of 19-20 year olds to drive out to?
Just mention anywhere fun... or potentially fun... no matter distance... and mind you, we cant drive on water... yet.


Panama, piss in the canal and take pics.

Here's an idea for your road trip - fly to Berlin and drive all the way down through eastern Europe, ending in Istanbul.

Definitely spend some time in Basel if you can, I'm there a lot for work and love the place, it'll also be a nice change in pace to the larger towns you're going to visit... As someone else has mentioned Lausanne is stunning and well worth the trek.

As for London, have a look at the Three Threads (www.thethreethreads.com) for something a bit different. I'd also rate a day trawling round the vintage stores in Notting Hill/Golbourne Road worth a week in the West End but don't miss Dover St. Market...

Forgot to mention, have an amazing time...

If you're into streetwear, defintely check out Patta. They have all the usual streetbrands and a couple others you might not see anywhere else. The staff are friendly and they'll help you find any other sneaker stores around there too.
Here's the address:
Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 142
1012 SH Amsterdam
The Netherlands

Have fun

There are a lot of spots on your list that i would just skip over. to go most of these places for only 2 days is a waste of your time, as you will only get to tell people you were there, and not really find anything so special, unless you just luck in to it. It seems like your going to be spending a lot of your time travling to get to a new place, and never will have enough time to make it worth while.

You should just choose 3 places your really interested in off your list and go from there... IMO.

Have a great trip no matter what though man... best!

xcountry. thats what me and my cousin are planning to do. from LA to NY.


That's what I'm doing right now. Will report with pics about it later. Hopefully we find some safe dives to chow at down in the southern country.

Umm... red, you have space for another person for your trip? Right now it'd be cheaper to take a train.

In Florence (if you are still stopping there) - go to Il Latini for dinner - it is a tourist trap of a sort now (and most people should be able to direct you) but the food is still darn good. (now embracing myself for possible onslaught of criticism from the italians and the well traveled). enjoy your trip.

Thinkin' 'bout the robbery that I did last week.
Money in the bag, banker looked like a drag
I want to play with pelicans from here to Baghdad
Gun blast, think fast, I think I'm hit
My girl pinched my hips to see if I still exist.
I think not, I'll send a letter to my friends,
A born again hooligan only to be king again.

Man - if you go to Europe - plan at least 3 days for Lisboa ...

Without a doubt - more romantic than Paris - most beautiful city there is...

I guess you have Berlin on ur plan - better than Munich..

[quote name='Dex_star']Whats up guys

From June 3rd to the 28th Illl be traveling through Europe on an already established route. I was just hoping you guys can suggest some must see shops, restaurants, or anything else. All the historic stuff will probably be covered as this is a tour, so anything else you think is a must would be appreciated. Heres my schedule:

June
4-5 London
6-8 Paris
9-10 Nice go to Corse instead ....
11-13 Cinque Terre
14-15 Rome
16-17 Florence
18 Venice
19-21 Interlaken
22-24 Munich go to Berlin
25- Bacharach go to Lisboa
26-27 Amsterdam

You really need to see Berlin and Lisboa....

WTF with the express tours? Not just this one. Everyone I've ever heard of just seemed a like a mission to waste the opportunity of actually finding anything worthwhile anywhere they blew through.

I second that.

9:30 club has concerts.

Other than that, go to King St. in Alexandria, it's quite nice if you're not into the whole "PARTY PARTY PARTY" thing and just want to chill out.

Oh yes, word of advice: wear lots of North Face. It's very fashionable there.
