I'm Nathan, fifteen years old and i'm from the Netherlands. I'll hope to read here much about backpacking, because i'm wanting to backpack in a year and a half, for my first time. And after that my plans are to got to asia for a couple of months.

It will be a while before i'll go, but it interests me, so i want to know everything about it before i go.

Excuses for my bad English.


Ps: my interests are philosphy and digital single lens reflexes, (photography). Also i like music: Radiohead, Tool, RHCP, Muse, Jimi Hendrix, The Prodigy, the Kooks, Metallica, Chopin, Rachmanninov, Scarlatti, Arctic Monkeys, Kwoon, GYBE, blueneck, etc.

Welcome to TP Nathan. You've found the right place if you want to know about travel!!! Keep checking out the Forums for wherever you want to go, and you'll find the answers to your questions.

And don't worry about your English skills....we all have challenges to face when trying to type in another language.

Thanks for the welcomes:)

I want to go threw europe. When i want to go i'm almost 17 years old, that's to young to get a visum for russia or something. It's possible but that's a lot of work, maybe i'll do it, but i think not, europe is also cool. I want to see the east, but also Berlin and Italie. I've been in italie for one or two weeks but i think backpacking threw italie is a complete other experience, i will see so much different things then.

Two friends want to go for sure, and one friend thinks it's to expensive, i'm not sure of i wants to go or not.

It's possible to go, even when you don't have much money. I really want a new lens (a 17-55 f/2.8 IS, 24-105 f/4 IS L or a 24-70 f/2.8 L) and that is also expensive, now i have descisded that i'll first have the money ready for the trip, and if i have enough money for that, then i will think of a new lens.
