Itinerary Europe

No, these are not pictures that I took. These are Google images of the places I want to visit. Would I be able to see all these places on one trip? Rather ambitious, isn't it? Well, I'm planning a 16 day trip to Europe! And as usual, we'll do it DIY style. This would be the longest DIY trip I have planned so far, and covering so many places! Getting more adventurous! When I come back, I'll post real photos and share the actual experience and the budget spent. Right now the budget is about 8-9k per person all-in including shopping. Still much cheaper than the travel agents fare which is 1k per night coming up to 14 k considering we're spending 14 nights in Europe! But let's see whether my estimate budget works!
