19 year old Kiwi male looking for buddy/s of similar age to do a road trip of Europe this Summer. Would like to see and do as much as I can for the smallest possible cost. Not really keen on 'Touristy' stuff. Hoping to pick up a cheap car/van in England and go from there. Let me know if you're interested ;)

Sure, I'm flying into London on the 16th of June and out again around the 30th of September. Ideally I'd like to do an old fashioned road trip without any firm plans or dates and just take it as it comes. I'm planning on staying in hostels and possibly the odd campground. Does this sound feasible or am I getting carried away with an unrealistic fairytale of an idea? I'm just not that keen on a fully mapped out tourist holiday.

I love the idea too. I might be interested as well. Do you have a certain amount of money to spend? Because I definately have limits.

After speaking to a few people it looks like travelling Europe by car might just end up being a pain in the arse (parking, tolls, registration, insurance etc :() and maybe a rail pass would be better?

No I haven't got a fixed amount but I'll definately be doin it on the cheap.

Luke and Tony: I've sent you both my email address incase you're keen to sort anything out.
