Hello. Just joined TP.

I'm from Singapore looking for travel companion to explore Swiss and German countryside in June 2018 for 6-10days. I will have a tent with me.

'Wild' camping is pretty much illegal in both Germany and Switzerland so if you want to use your tent you'll almost certainly have to use campsites.

People are more likely to respond if you give a bit more info, such as how you intend to travel from place to place, what sort of budget you'll be working to and what sort of things interest you (history? countryside? hiking? art? etc) :-)

Thanks Leics2 for the advise.
I will be in London 14-17 and hope to fly to Berne or Lucern from there (or else take train). From 18-24 I intend to explore the Swiss countryside (I'm still researching places) stay in hostels .. came across one place where you sleep on straw in a barn ... I will have a sleeping bag and a tent with me. I don't intent to camp out in the wild but pitch a tent in a campsite .... I did this 25 years ago when I was a student studying in UK. In Germany I'm interested in the countryside around the Rhine river area. But, I'm also open to going to Greek islands or Croatia between 24-30 June. Or also French Riveira (not Nice and those high flyer places). Has been to Greek Islands 3 times before ... last time some 20 years ago. I'm also open to go to Croatia or Slovenia (instead of Germany). I'm flexible in my schedule. Open to hitch-hiking as well. But prefer train travel. I like nature, rivers and beaches, history and culture. My main interests are to see how people live ... go away from the main crowded tourist spots (has seen most of the city sights in Europe already) interact with locals .. attend festivals if any ..... I'm not a smoker and a very light drinker ... prefer soft drinks. Hope this gives a better idea of what I'm looking for.
