Hey All!

Just came across this site, it seems like a good starting point to get needed travel info!

It's my first time traveling to Europe next year in May, for the first 3 months I will be with a few friends then from September-December I'll be going the journey solo. I'll be in Italy-Germany-Montenegro-Croatia and decided to venture to Egypt and Morocco too :).

Just wondering if there's any tips for the countries mentioned and if anyone else is heading that way!

I'll be in Croatia all of June, Italy part of July and Germany in late September.

You should be fine, but just remember that Italy/Germany are part of Schengen. So of the 6 months you plan to travel only 3 (or 90 days in a 180 day period) can be spent in this zone.

It's really messed with our 9 month trip.

Egypt is still unsettled in places at times so do check first. Spain is just a short ferry ride from Morocco so you may want to get there that way?

Note: The winter months can be very cold (and this year wet) in northern Europe so better to be down south.

Thanks for the pointers :).

The Schengen Period is annoying but I have deviced an itinerary to make sure I don't overstay 90 days. As for Egypt and Morocco I'm doing tours which comes in handy.

Definitely plan on being in warmer weather come the cold months :)

Traveling with friends will make your journey more memorable. Well, it is more fun than to do solo travel.

I am traveling with friends for the first 3 months of my journey but they've gotta head home. I'm sure like many others there's always to new faces and new travel buddies along the way :)
