I'm currently in the initial planning phases of a backpacking trip to Europe. I'm just about to graduate college and am am taking the CPA exams for most of the summer, so unfortunately, I can't make my schedule work with my friends'. So right now, it looks like I'll be going alone. I thought it would be cool to see if it's possible to find a travel buddy for the trip to share the adventure with, have each others' backs, etc.

I'm looking to travel for about a month from mid-August to mid-September. I'd like to do a loop of Europe visiting countries like Spain, France, Switzerland, northern Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, and Denmark. From my wide variety of countries, I'm obviously open to go almost anywhere. The only country that I'm not really interested in visiting is England as I studied abroad there and have visited a lot. But, again I can probably be talked into anything, and if we agree to be travel buddies, we can definitely plan our trip out together. I'm just excited to go to Europe. I'm not constrained to any type of extremely tight budget, but at the same time, I want to do the traditional hostel/rail pass backpacking trip in order to meet more people so I'm not looking to spend an exorbitant amount.

I'm a 22 year old guy from the US. I'm certainly not a huge party animal or anything, but I definitely like sitting down and talking over drinks and am open to going out to clubs sometimes (just not every night - sometimes I just need time to recharge). I have a lot of travel experience, but I've never done the backpacking/hostel thing before. In terms of a travel buddy, I'm looking for someone who's in my same age range (18-25), male or female doesn't matter, who is respectful, sociable, open to trying new things, etc. I'm told that I'm easy to get along with, so I'm hoping you'd be too. So, if this sounds interesting to you and the mid-August to mid-September timeframe works for you, please let me know. Hopefully we can find a mutual, compatible match, and we can start planning our European backpacking trip!

Also, if you know of any other good sites where I can find other like-minded travelers to post this, I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know. Thanks!

Hi, my names Nella. Im Australian and im 18. I have planned a trip to Europe/Iceland/America from august 5th through till november 3rd. I am meeting my Icelandic friend in London August 5th however we wont be staying in london long, heading straight to Europe. We may have to seperate due to him having other commitments with his studies, so i am currently looking for a travel buddy! I would be in Europe between mid august to mid september and will be backpacking/eurailling/ staying in hostels etc. as i am on a tight budget. I went on exchange to America for 12 months when i was 15 so i have travelled before just not in this way. Im up for an adventure and keen to see southern Europe (france, spain, italy, greece) then work my way up to the nothern parts however im very flexible. Im an outgoing, little bit quirky, happy person who is always up for having a good time. I love going out to pubs/clubs but i also love spending a good night in. I really love meeting new people and making new friends so if you are interested please contact me through messgage.

looking forward to hearing from you! :)

Hey. I am currently living in Munich, but want to travel throughout Europe before I have to go back to work in mid September. I am pretty much open to going anywhere. I could also show you around Munich if you are interested in coming here : )

I had spent many time in many places in Europe my Favorite places in Europe are Paris, London and Spain due to their natural beauty and some have historical attraction.
