I am from sydney, Oz. I am planning a trip to Europe in July/August 2013. I have had a look at Contiki and Topdeck but not keen on doing a very structured and stick to schedule trip. I like enjoying country side and my idea of travel is not just sight seeing but experiencing the culture and enjoying the journey.
I am planning a road trip, so basically hiring a car and drive around europe. Planning a 4-6 weeks covering Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany Netherlands and France.
Let me know if someone is interested to join in witj me on my adventure. I have few friends at work wanting to do this but no one has committed yet. I will be keen to hear from travellers around the world.
Good luck Ricky. 2013 will be a year to remember. I recommend the south of France with beautiful girls and lovely scenery. Venture through the north where you can stop and pick your own oranges and lemons with an aroma you will never forget. Love to strut off again but I am tied to my wife and mortgage now and a structured two week Travel Monster package to a four star hotel in Portugal where wine is cheaper than water. Enjoy the freedom and beauty of travelling through Europe and take lots of pictures for posting.
Road trip is awesome, the first four countries you had mentioned are on my "to do" list...but sad I cant confirm my vacation period yet...
Thanks Guys, can't wait for this trip to happen.
Dian - Mate, I haven't confirmed my trip as yet. I am hoping it will be sometime July/August 2013. Keep me posted when you have organise and confirmed your trip.
Take it easy!!
