Hi everyone,

I'm a 24 year old girl from Namibia, Africa. I want to take a backpacking trip around some European countries(of which I don't know which countries yet). Since I'm a working girl, I will only have maximum 3-4 weeks. Ideally the trip would be August/September 2012. I'm looking for travelling partners. The trip will be very budgeted, staying in hostels etc

Interested girls or guys are welcome to write me if you are planning a euro backpacking trip on a budget along those months in 2012. Should preferably be around my age. Should be easygoing and fun.

Liv ;)

hi Liv,

wow, that trip is so far away. I am planning to be in europe at that time next year but I will probably leave between April - June and will be staying well beyond September.

If you can't find a travel companion, I wouldn't be too worried. The only time you will be alone is when you are travelling between places. You will meet so many people at hostels, trust me. Just smile and be friendly and people will be friendly back and you will make some good friends.

Hi Liv, I am considering to travel in first two weeks of September (I'm only available in this period) and it would be eastern europe as I just came back from western europe. If you are interested, you can contact me. Cheers!

Hi Livilo,

I'm interested in joining for you August. I have a rough plan of where I want to go...Netherlands (Amsterdam!), Germany (Rhine in Flames Aug.13.2012), and Spain (Barcelona for La Tomatina from Aug 27-31st). Let me know if you are interested! I'd love a travel buddy who wants to stay in hostels, buy groceries, and do Europe relatively cheaply.

I'm female and around your age. I'll be 23 by then (24th birthday is Aug.30). I'm from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and I'll begin my June-Aug Europe Backpacking adventure in the UK and work my way around, going wherever my 3 month EUrail pass will take me.

While I have a vague idea of where I want to go, I'm pretty flexible as long as I see the Rhine in Flames in Germany and I'm in Barcelona by August 27th!

If you are interested, let me know!

I am planning to arrive into Sofia, then maybe hit some Eastern European countries, then leave from Sofia, for a few weeks in August. I have been to Hungary and Czech Republic, so other countries in that area are what I'm planning to go to.

I'm not sure how far in advance I'll be able to reserve lodging, because my dates may change the last minute... so hopefully I can find lodging.

Anyone have any feedback for scheduling such a trip - my dates may change last minute by a few days... :(
