    Will this be enough to travel western europe for a month? I know it's the most expensive part of europe... any travel tips (i.e cheapest places for food) to help stretch it over the entire period?

    Including flights? If so, call it 40 euros a day for food/transport/sights. That's going to be rather difficult, hostels are typically 20-25 euros / night, you'll be eating very cheaply (bread/cold meats from supermarket) and missing out on some cool attractions due to the entry fee.

    Not really, would be fine in the east or maybe a bit of both.

    You could try couchsurfing to save money that would be spent on hotel rooms. When it comes to travel costs - hitchhiking or carpooling (carpooling.com, blablacar.com). These are quite adventurous ways but at the same time they let you meet local people and have unforgettable experiences but I believe it's best to try them if you do not travel alone.

    Yeah it'll be more than enough as long as you're staying in dorms in hostels, cooking for yourselves sometimes and either not going out every night or not paying for attractions every day.

    Sometimes, even dorms can cost upwards of £30 in cities like Amsterdam and Barcelona

    Yeah limit your time in those cities. When I went interrailing, Amsterdam was my most expensive hostel (£33/night-ish) and probably the worst that I stayed in.. had £8/night one in Krakow which was probably the best and a £7/night one in Prague which was better than Amsterdam. Barcelona can be got pretty cheaply if you book in advance though.

    Only been with my family so can't comment. Have a look on hostelbookers.com.

    Amsterdam is definitely worth visiting for a night or two but it'll drain your wallet very quickly if you stay for any longer and there's not that much more to it than weed and prostitutes. My first and last night of my holiday were there which was pretty much perfect.
