Hi everyone my name is jasmine and im going backpacking to europe in summer 2005. my sister, cousin and i are not really planning to go to many places cause we are only going to be there for three weeks, but we are definately wanting to go to london,france,italy and greece. we need a place to stay in all those places. is there any chance that any of you guys know any cheap hostiles. or housing. something. its just 3 girls and we are really friendly girls. we love interacting with different people from different cultures. thats why us three are studying the same major. international business and communication. anyways i would really appreciate if i hear some advice. thanks luv jass or by the way we are all so excited going backpacking to europe its our first time so i cant wait.

I'm planning a road trip round europe in my van this summer, I'm 23 and british. my girlfriends 28 and hungarian. we're not to fussed as to where we go or when. theres enough room in the van for 2...posssibly 3 to sleep but I might be able to get a big tent to bring with us. we're looking around march-april time. as usual costs are divided equally (including any possible break down...but I'm a mechanic so hopefully not a problem). we're happy to take as many as will fit in the van.I've done a bit of travelling ...not much just a bit.(australia & tiawan 8 month in all). if your interested...(or anyone else reading this is) then call jon on +44 1423523841

5 countries in 3 weeks - very difficult.
Get 'Europe on a shoestring' by Lonely Planet for tips.

hi jasmine!
I am going for a backpacking experience as well this coming May till June Germany-Italy-France-Spain is my route. I totally agree that you should purchase Lonely Planet's Europe on a Shoestring. I got lots of information from it as well.. I do suggest that you purchase a ISIC card for you to get discounts all over the places. Its really a big advantage should you travel with a very tight budget.

keep in touch!!

hey jas!
i would suggest getting a youth hostel international membership card before you go. Sometimes it comes in handy and it can get you discounts with certain hostels. Have a great trip!
