I'm looking to take a 3 week trip to Europe next year in the spring. Ideally, I'd like to know only the city in which I'll land and the AirBnB I'll stay in for the first couple nights, and then just wing it after that.
As far as I know, a Schengen Visa requires you to state which city you're going to be in the longest, and then you obtain your visa from that country's embassy. Is this true?
Is AirBnB prolific (and still legal) in most of Europe? I'm planning to hit the UK (England/Ireland), France, Italy, Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, and maybe Scandinavia. I stayed in an AirBnB last year in Berlin but it was seen as quite risky for my host as the city had banned it.
Any other advice for travelling around and between countries would be greatly appreciated too :)
