Hi Priya,

Communication - most of Europe runs on GSM so you can get a Matrix SIM card which enables you to rcv free phone calls, make calls at local rates and generally be in touch.

carrying money - it is a good idea to carry a travel card instead of euros/TCs. You can get one from Thomas Cook, load it with Rupees at a pre-decided, negotiated rate and spend as you go - its like a debit card and accepted by almost all merchants.

While travelling - on arriving, dont be in a hurry to get to anywhere. at a large airport/station, go to a corner, stop, check out your bearings and dont get panicky - its very easy to panic in those first few moments of first-time-travelling-alone. A great thing about europe is that all cities have information offices at the stations/airports with very detailed maps and timetables of trains. Also ask the lady at the desk for help in seeing the main attractions in a town and the best way to do it (if you dont have a list already).

Travelling - you may want to buy a 3/8 day Euro-rail pass if your trip is not too strait-jacketed. You can buy one from Griffon (near Cusrow Baug at Colaba) or the Cox n Kings Office at Vaswani Mansions, Churchgate. Travel in Europe on just-brought tickets can be very expensive.
