I was wondering if anyone had any experience in walking across Western Europe? The current plan is to walk from Gloucester (South West England) to Poland, hopefully in just over two months total. Our plan is to do it as cheaply as possible (camping and cheap hostels when neccessary) but we are unsure whether this plan is a bit ambitious!

Any advice/guidance/experience will be appreciated!

It looks like walking path E11 was made just for you!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E11_European_long_distance_path

and

The terrain should be fairly flat or rolling hills for the most part. It is about 1350 km from The Netherlands to the Polish Border... Around 1.5 months of hiking at 30km/day.

Here is the link to the EU Ramblers Association. They should be able to help you with maps and info on camping/accomodations along the path.
