what I mean "western" Europe is the richer European countries like Germany, Norway, Sweden, France... etc What is the concept of EUR 500 in those countries? What can you buy with EUR 500 there? What is the average daily salary of people there, excluding taxes, for NOT working in professional industries like medicine or engineering .... Maybe I should ask in this way. As a tourist, how many days I can stay with EUR 500? Not including flights, living in average motels (not too luxury, not too worse), not dining at expensive restaurants, just living like the most ordinary people. I am NOT planning to go to Europe or work in Europe, just out of curiosity because of some reasons that are too long to explain.
