I am a 24 year old student from the Bay area of San Francisco in California USA. Traveling to Europe has always been my dream and this year it seems it will finally come true. I plan to stay with hosts from and some hostels because I am on a short budget. I plan to buy my plane ticket within the next couple of weeks. I have never been there before and would like to see as much of Europe as possible. I heard budgeting about $50 dollars a day is enough to get you by. Let me know if I am wrong on that.

I am looking for a travel partner or travel partners to join me or meet up with me while I am in Europe. I plan to land in England then head down south to France, Spain, Morocco (time and $$ permitting), Italy, Germany, Holland, Amsterdam and any other countries in the way.

A little about my self….. I am an athletic person who likes the outdoors, history, and travel (seeing the world with its great cultures). I am a student with an Architectural Engineering Major. I am originally from Central America from a small country called El Salvador. But I have been living in California since I was 3 years old. If you have any tips, suggestions or just want to meet up in Europe please advise me. In my trip I plan to see the landscapes, Museums, Hiking, I really would love to go see the places where battles from WWI and WWII took place. It will be fun.

If you have any tips, suggestions or just want to meet up in Europe please advise me. Or if you live in the USA and would like to join me then your more than welcome to.

Hey Oscar, hoping your having a good one in Sweden. If you get down south or to København and fancy a beer or whatever, drop me a mail.

Or anything else you need/want to know, just ask.
