Hello,

Im looking to travel around sometime soon I hope. I want to go everywhere and anywhere but thats not possible because of finances etc.
I have backpacked Belgium, some of France and half of the Nederlands before over a period of eight weeks or so on about £500.

Most of my travel was hitch hiking and some train rides, but hitching I found, was the best form of getting around cheaply since Europe is connected!
I am looking to go maybe January time onwards and travel and work to fund my travel until I get bored and then come home again. I was wondering if anyone is looking for a companion or wants to join me? So far I have £400 SAVED and I reackon this is enough to get me to France etc and then keep me going for a few weeks until I find work to fund my travel. I will hopefully have more saved by January. I wil camp and stay in hostels when needed. I have no real idea of a destination, just wake up and go in any direction really. I have most of the gear I need except food, but get that as I go haha!
Im Rob, 21 male from UK North Wales, unemployed and just finished with the British army.

Looking forward to replies :)

With that much time, I would choose anywhere from 4 to 6 countries and really get to know the places you visit. For France, I would recommend about two weeks in Paris, about a week in Lyon and surrounding area, and then about four or five weeks in the south of France. I would also recommend Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. In Germany, allow for some time in the Bavarian Alps.
Where you decide to go will depend on what types of activities you prefer and whether you want to spend more time in cities or in rural areas.
You'll save money if you stay in hostels, self-catering accommodations, or in convents/monastaries.
