hey trish-

i'm currently planning a solo trip myself. trying to recruit some of my loser/tightwad friends to pony up the cash for an adventure but we'll see.

tentatively, i'm planning to fly into london. from there i have friends (and free lodging and beers!) in edinburgh and dublin so i'll make my way via liverpool, manchester, newcastle, and possibly york (also hitting glasgow and belfast on my way to dublin). from there, who knows? i want to run with the bulls in spain sometime 7/6-14. other than that i have no firm dates/plans for anything, just a willingness to go/see/do just about everything. looked into the the eurail pass, but might be cheaper to get inidividual tickets and/or fly (ryanair has a ton of flights for $20us!!!) - though will have to use the train some to say i did so. ;)

i've been to london and paris before (10 days each) so i wont spend much time there, but want to see amsterdam, brussels, berlin, the rest of france, maybe venice, maybe croatia, maybe portugal, maybe morocco...a lot of maybe's. my dates are pretty open - planning on 6 weeks probably june thru july, though definitely will be in spain for the bulls.

about me: single white dude from sacramento, ca; 34 (going on 25 - which means old enough to know better but still too young to care); college educated and self-employed; pretty go with the flow. i like interesting people with opinions (that aren't affraid to express them) and intelligence to back them up. i rarely do more than drink these days but definitely don't judge those experimenting with more. basically just looking to have a good time and would rather not do it alone if don't have to.

hopefully we can exchange some ideas.

Did this pan out? If anyone above will be in Europe June/ July for a few weeks (5?) , let me know, am solo at the moment and other than 5 days with bf in Italy, have 3 weeks I would like to fill with good times. I'm thinking Greece, Spain and Italy, mostly beaches and sights if I can. Me? 29 year old back girl, living in CT, recently quit my job as an accountant and did a teaching english course and palnning on basically travelling until I decide where to live. My first time in Europe so it'd be great to meet some kindreds. I'm still in the planning stages but I'm hoping beginning June if all goes well.

Is this happening? Are people still making these plans? I'm a 19 year old female, I'm going to be in Europe from mid may to late June, and the friend I was going to go with just backed out. No real specific plans, just traveling cheaply, a eurail pass, hostels, etc. Let me know, because I'd love to have someone to travel with!

I'm travelling solo throughout Europe in July, 'cause the friend I was going with just backed out.
I'll be visiting Madrid, Rome, Venice and some Greek islands (like Santorini).
Looking for someone to do the touristy thing with and maybe some outdoor stuff...just a good time...I'm up for anything...

My itinerary looks like this:
Madrid (July 16-18)
Rome (July 18-20)
Venice (July 20-23)
Greek Islands (July 24-27)

If anyone is interested in meeting up, let me know.
