NY-based user on a forum seeks budget-friendly ways to spend a week in Europe before a transatlantic cruise from Barcelona to NY. Wants to know the cost-effective way to live in Europe from England to Spain.
"Leave England; Spain is cheaper. Eastern Europe is even cheaper. Consider a cheap flight to Eastern Europe for a week, then to Barcelona or directly to Barcelona. Trains can be costly, try Flixbus for multi-destination travel."
"Find the cheapest flights from London to Barcelona and check Hostel World and booking.com for budget-friendly accommodations with good transport links. Traveling more costs more."

"I'll fly to Prague, a beautiful, affordable city with culture, good food, and friendly people. After three nights, I'll take a train or bus to Vienna, equally inexpensive and beautiful. I'd then fly back to the UK or Barcelona. Transportation and accommodations are cheap, with many free things to do. Total cost for all three is less than $100."
