Hi there,

I'm from Germany and I plan travelling around in 2006, preferly during summer for around three weeks(17.07-25.08) somewherer in Europe and I'd really appreciate any advice where to go to! I've already visited the UK/Republic of Ireland (All around Galway, the Lake District etc.) but sadly I have always been on my own so I'm looking for nice companions to travel with now!
I'd like to work out a lovely route to travel along together with you, if you're interested just write me, I'm waiting...! ;-)
(age and sex, of course, doesn't matter, after all we're all adults, right?!)

So long,

I'm from Nottingham in England and have a friend who has a caravan in Derbyshire that he's at every weekend from march to october this caravan site also has access to loads of routes for cycling, hiking, climbing, name it they've got access to it you don't say whether it's cycling or hiking you're after although i love both and if you'd like to hook along for a weekend during that time you're quite welcome to, i personally sleep in a tent (or sometimes use his awning) all that it would cost you if you was to camp is around £15 for the weekend and it has some spectacular views!

by the way I am 19, male, friendly but shy...I also love a pint of real ale!

on the mention of ales they also have a lot of good pubs that do cheap but amazing food for not much money and they're not bothered about muddy boots!

thanks for reply!
Your offer sounds really really nice! Your friend's place seems just perfectly in all ways, and it's cheap. I don't travel with a tent but as you mentioned it's no problem as well. I'd really like to meet you and your friend there, I also hope there will be other compaions, would you also like spend the weekend with some other guys/girls? Right now I still don't know how many people will travel with us along...what do you think?

So long,

I'd be interested in meeting up with you at some point during your trip but I wouldn't be able to go for the whole thing. I'm Canadian, living in Leeds, England at the moment, so maybe once you get your details sorted out, I'll see if I can join you somewhere along the way.

I'm loving this.... I'm planning on going to Europe around May or so of this year and although I'm sure I'll meet tons of people there in hostels and whatnot it's great to talk to people pre-trip about what their plans are. I'm so pumped! I'm a 24/m from Nova Scotia and I'm finishing up a graduate degree, no job as of yet so I'm going to save what I can and put the rest of the trip on the visa!! haha! Send me a message if you want to talk!

im going travelling through europe also around summer time, my plans are at the early stage but hoping to go for about a month or two. Would be great to travel along the way with others. Let us know your plans and maybe we can sort something out

Greetings to all of you!

I'll write more about the route when things will be sorted out! I guess this will be this early spring!

Hey, how you doing?

Am planning on heading over to Europe around May for a while, would be keen to meet up at some point, undecided as of yet if I'll be in Ireland/Scotland at that point or if I'll be heading France/Spain/Portugal way at that time (I wouldn't mind checking out the La Tomatina Festival at the end of August) Nothing finalised yet... Am a 21 year old chick from New Zealand btw.

Hello NZ chick ;-) *ggg*
I'd like to meet up with you, of course! Hopefully there'll be many others accompanying me/us as well! I have to travel from 7 - 17 - 8 - 25 (and only up to four weeks within this time, sadly me time's very limited ;-( ) because of holidays! Anyway, if you're interested in an adventerous journey (containing some hiking, maybe biking, an other activities) you're more than welcome to join me/us!

So long,
