I'll be out some where in Europe during this time.. Dont know where as yet though. All i know is that im inter-railing and youth hosteling. I go out next week and will intend to be back by September.

Do you know of your route as yet? Im 25 from Nottingham and travelling alone as well so would be happy to meet up somewhere if youl'd like.

At this moment all I have planned is Italy, Greece and then to head up by train to Croatia, for a tour that starts 14th July. Im kind of doing eveything on a day my day basis. Im looking forward to having no stresses or routines and definatly no set schedules, I want to be free!!!

Although saying that I think I may be around Austria or Czech Rep by early August.

I would be happy to meet you if you had more of an idea than me! Feel free to drop me a line if youl'd like to chat.

All the best, Mel x

yhh that sounds the same as me! i dont want a schedule as such as i just want to go and do what i want at the time, dont want to have to stick to anything just want to do it as i fancy really! but it all depends on how much i have saved by the time i leave to how much and how long i travel for really. so im going to be travelling by train as this seems the most flexible thing to do, have you ever traveled on the train in europe before? and also are hostels easy to get into do you know or do you have to book in advance?

I have already booked a few hostels, they seem to be widely availble at the moment, but that may change closer to the time. I think I will book them a day in advance unless I will be arriving early morning.

I have booked the inter-rail pass. Iv not done it before but as far as im aware you just get on and go.

You will get hostels in some hostels, if you keep a blog of where you are i'll look and maybe if we are in the same place etc we could meet up.

All the best with your planning
