Hey, all!

I'm looking to backpack across Europe Spring - Summer/Fall 2013. I'd be starting in Ireland then head to England, Germany, France, and Spain. Any interest in joining?

Hi :)

I'm backpacking across Europe come May next year starting in England :). Traveling all over and definitely heading to the places you've mentioned. Would be nice to have a fellow traveler!

That sounds great! What are your plans for travel? Do you think you'll take the train, backpack, drive...? How long do you think you'll want to travel?

I'm starting in London :), with a Contiki Tour booked for Great Britain & Ireland from then on Portugal, Spain, Greek Islands, Budapest, Vienna, Prague, into Belgium for Tomorrowland! Amsterdam, Switzerland, Turkey, Nice, La Tomatina Festival in Valencia, Italy, Munich for Oktoberfest, Berlin, Montenegro, Croatia, Egypt, Morocco finishing off in Paris!

It's definitely a lot but I'm traveling for 6 months!!!! Cannot wait :D.

I'm traveling with a couple friends for the first 3 months then solo journey onwards from Italy we are doing buses, trains, planes if necessary. Have you done any research?

Hi all
It'd be great to meet up with fellow travellers but unfortunately I won't know at all how my itinerary will look until at least April. I will definitely be heading to europe mid-June starting from either France or the UK, but that's as much as I know at this stage. But would love to keep in touch and maybe if we're crossing paths we could meet up? :)

Hi Sara :)

Be nice to meet up along the way :). I am going to be in Portugal come mid-late June, so if you feel like heading west let me know!

I love the sound of doing that! It would be a really awesome experience. I'd be 18 by then, and I'm from Canada. Would you be willing to finish around the end of August, since I would have school starting then??
