Hey guys!

I'm just wondering if any of you out there could help with ideas for an 8 day backpacking trip on my lonesome?
I'm planning on going on a rtw trip in future when I've paid off o/draft etc. But instead of waiting all that time, I want to do loads of small trips in the meantime, late minute deals etc.

I'm planning on going in the first week of december time, so Ive got three pay days till I go. Hopefully I should have about 600 pounds to fund it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks guys!!!

Stay Safe.

Im assuming your from UK bearing in mind you said pounds??

For 8 days and £600 id do europe, £100 on flights and ferrys max! You can get some excellent cheap deals on Ryan air or easyjet.... or do the ferry over to amsterdam and make your way from there?? If you dont have a car ferrys are REALLY cheap!

Maybe do 4 days in one country and 4 days in another? You dont want to squash too much in there... or you'll be really tired and miss loads!!

If i had 8 days and £600... Id prob do france, belgium and strasburgh, Luxenburgh, maybe germany if i got a chance... theres an excellent stella factory in belgium... but dec maybe a cold time to go in europe....

Maybe you could save the money up for a bit longer,, get some more time off work... and go somewhere a bit further? and hotter?

Good luck ;-)
