Me and my friends are thinking of travelling europe next summer over about three weeks. Were thinking of buying an old Volkswagon 69 minivan. One of the original 'Hippie Vans'. Im wondering would it be possible does anyone know, to drive it from london - paris - the alps - milan - prague - germany - amsterdam and back to london. I need to know it is worthwhile to buy a cheap van, put 500euro into it and drive it hundreds of miles.

If this is a bad idea, does anyone have ideas for transporting 5 guys in some comfort around europe???

... also do we need to have seatbelts in the back of the van for all the countries i mentioned, and how strict are police about seatbelts in the back?

Some one posted a note on the Guest book of www.backpackingeurope.com who wish to sell a van, they might be able to give you some more details on the van they are selling and their recent travel experiences or where you can get a van to suit your needs.
Hope it works out for you
