Title: Lets' Go Europe 2006
Writer: Harvard University Students
Definitely a must-have,must-read for every independent traveler,interrailer or eurailer.The books is organized very good and gives nice hints about the cities.List budget places for accomadation and food.Also gives information about transportation to nearby cities.Lists places to visit and how you can reach there.The price $14.99 is a bargain for this book.
During my July 2006 interrail trip I carried this book with me every single day.Just but it,you won't regret.
