I'll be traveling around Europe from May 2013 - August 2013 and am looking for some advice on travel modes / tours.
I'm 27 years-old and because of health reasons I've had to stop drinking alcohol and am not looking to party until all hours every night. I'm still keen to meet heaps of people and head out to dinner and bars without actually drinking and being out until 4am every night. Thus I'm wondering what people's advice is regarding purchasing busabout loop passes? Eg. Are the majority of people on the buses there to party hard? I've read that busabout tends to cater for many demographics but thought I'd get some more opinions.
I have no time constraints but it is my first time traveling Europe and my itinerary will include Berlin, Prague, Krakow, Vienna, Rome, Florence, Paris, The Somme region and Barcelona. My priorities are taking each destination slowly, visiting WWI and WWII sites, hitting the Tour De France and most importantly meeting plenty of people.
So thoughts on busabout for someone not drinking? Or should I just wing it and organise rail / plane and hostel accommodation as I go?
