I'm hoping to take a sabbatical from work (at least a year, if I can get rid of debt and save a year's salary) and go backpacking in Europe. Has anyone done this, and/or does anyone have any book recommendations -- anything on budgeting, planning, or anything else you found helpful?

Wow -- so envious!!!

I've travelled in various parts of the world & always have been happy w/ Lonely Planet.
