Traveling around the world

3 months, starting in Southeast asia around new years. I'd like to spend the last month Leaving bangkok and going to Mumbai>Europe (Dublin, london or amsterdam, probably)>Boston (home). Any advice on what to do in europe for ten days? Travel expense is a consideration. Vague, i know, but throw some ideas out there: what would you do if you had ten days for a budget trip in europe?

The Air Travel forum is probably not the best place to ask what to do in Europe.

In fact, you should first figure out why Europe interests you and pick a couple places to visit. Once you have something in mind, go to the respective forums and post your questions there. If you don't do some homework to start, Europe has too many possibilities for you to get meaningful answers.

Three months is not a long time to travel the world, and ten days in Europe will get you a fleeting look out of the windows as you pass through, with little chance to explore.

You would struggle to do ten days in the UK alone, if you wanted to see London, Windsor, Stratford Upon Avon, Bath, Scotland.

If ten days is all you have, then flying would be the least economic & practical way to get around Europe, go by rail instead.

You should spend all of it studying the vases in the museums in Athens.

OP will certainly be able to catch up on some sleep taking this suggestion.

Yes, but they all bear signs to the effect that they're fake repros, the original being in the British Museum in London! But indeed a good way to catch up on sleep!

With 10 days, in March (?) I would pick one country, probably Spain or Italy and chose a couple of cities.

Rome and Florence are only an hour and a half apart, Barcelona is fantastic and 10 days starting from there would let you see a bit of southern Spain.

Which one would depend on what you are interested in.

The weather in March can be a bit iffy further north, butit is probably more important to go someplace with sights hat intererst you than to have sunshine.

London and Amsterdam would work well as would Dublin and one of the others. Trying to do all 3 in 10 days would, IMO, not even give you much of a flavour.

Do know that all 3 may be a bit cold and wet, even at the end of March. (Although lately, London seem to have had summer in April, which is gone by mid-May)
