Hi everyone!

So I've always wanted to go on a 3 week long European adventure as a graduation present to myself. However, I've planned out when and where I would like to go within France, Italy, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands but have had 2 different travel-buddies back out at the last minute. What is the best way to find a 2-3 week long travel buddy/are any of you interested? I've listed the places I'm most interested in seeing below:

France:
-Paris
-Nice

Italy:
-Cinque Terre
-Florence/Pisa
-Rome
-Venice

Austria:
-Vienna

Germany:
-Munich
-Berlin
-Cologne
-Frankfurt

Netherlands:
-Amsterdam

Hi Mholman92

So what dates are you thinking of travelling these places?

Im doing an european tour myself, will be around August 15th to September 23rd.

Some of those places you listed that Ill be visiting is Cologne, Amsterdam, Vienna and Munich,

So if your around at the same time, although youd probably want someone whos travelling with you to all the same places

Have fun anyway!

Hi Gooner Ali and Lanny 21!

Let me give a bit of an update, since my initial post was 3 weeks ago. I have met 2 males (21 and 27 y/o) that are interested in traveling together, however the route is slightly different. At this point we plan on flying into London on July 1st and returning home on July 18th. The following places are on our route: London, Paris, Amsterdam, Munich, Split (Croatia- Ultra), Venice, Rome, Madrid. I am currently looking for one more female companion so that there can be girl and guy pairs (easier for rooming, etc).

I haven't exactly planned an amount out for how much it will cost, but it will be a bit more for me since I'm flying in from the U.S (ticket ~ $1200). We are planning on staying in hostels every night so that cost would be minimal. We are still deciding what to do about train tickets, as we're unsure if it would be cheaper to buy the tickets with our without a 4 country rail pass. The only other major expensive that I can think of is the Ultra ticket. One of the guys is a DJ and very excited about the 3 day event in Croatia!

And also if money is an issue most hostels allow you to volunteer in exchange for room and board, but definitely should get a decent size group going
