I've decided to see the world a bit more and thought that I'd enjoy a nice frosty winter in Europe this year. I'll be flying into Amsterdam in late Nov and spending 12 weeks (20hr flight each way... :sleepgerman: ) Thinking of spending time in some combination of Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Poland, the Baltics and Norway. I'm a uni student btw so I don't haven't a lot of money, inhibitions or sense. I'll just have my carry on and will be travelling solo.

What I want to know from any of you European Nordlanders is:
-> how miserable is Europe in winter (particularly those countries I mentioned)?
-> What are cool things to do over winter? So far I'm thinking see Aurora Borealis, Christmas markets in Germany, FKK clubs in Germany, castles, beer, art, look at swords and tanks etc.
-> If you ski, where is best to ski in Europe? I've never done skiing before and don't have lots of money to spend on luxury ski resorts in the Alps. I want to do adventurous outdoor stuff where possible, doesn't have to be skiing.
-> My French is decent and my German is basic but improving. How easy will it be to pick up European babes in bars? lol
-> Where can I get the best beer?
-> Any other advice?

I thought since NoR is transitioning from CN-focus it could expand to travel advice.

Poland and Slovakia have decent low cost skiing. Get yourself a European rail pass for maximum bang for your buck. You can relocate overnight and sleep on the train, saving a nights hotel or hostel cost. Best beer will be on the German/Czech region. Central and Eastern Europe is your best chance to score with a decent bird. The weather will either be wet or cold. Pick your poison. Don't go to Switzerland, it is expensive and shit boring. If you want to see the Alps, go French side or Austria.

And thus a Nordreich travel section is born. I wish I had advice, this is something I've always wanted to do as well. Glad you are making it happen. If any of you Euros make your way over to America (unlikely I know, damn Americans) I have much knowledge to spread on the subject, particularly when it comes to the natural aspects.

I go to Murica sometimes. It makes me feel cleverer. And my brother lives there. And guns are fun. And the food is better. Yeah, fuck you France I went there.

Norway is the most expensive country in northern-europe + they still use their own currency, while every other country listed uses the euro. It can be rather expensive for a uni student .Finland would be your best bet if you dont want to start coverting us dollars to a currency other than the euro and still want to experience northern-europe. And we also have thiss law called every mans right which pretty much allows you to camp in any forest you want to.

Germany has a lot of things to see, loads of good beers and plenty of good looking women who know what they want.

Actually, no. Frankly that could be said of the SE of England. Although most of the women there are more masculine than the men
