Living in the Netherlands, I travelled extensively across many parts of Europe, from the off the beaten track Faroe Islands to glitzy Paris or ancient Rome. Also travelled a lot in Eastern Europe, including unusual ones like Moldova, Kosovo and the Caucasus countries. So if you have questions about Scandinavia, the Mediterranean, the Alps, British Isles or many cities, please ask.


Have done a lot of travelling throughout Europe, almost always using public transport and particularly focusing on archaeological and historical sites. Happy to help wherever I can.

Freddi Woomba

Simply.. I have been travelling around Europe for more than 2 years. I have worked under the table in 4 countries as an 'illegal immigrant' lol. And I have now managed to walk across nearly 3000 km . There is a small amount of knowledge on my blog :)


We have travelled this region many times over many years.


My wife and I run an extensive travel website ( greater Europe and the Mediterranean and have travelled to many countries over the years, including an Amsterdam to Budapest river cruise in 2005.


I initially came to do a spot of travelling and seem to have 'moved in' to England. I have travelled through France, Italy, Catalonia, UK and Ireland. I have also spent time in Thailand, Australia and NZ, naturally. I am happy to help with any questions on those regions about anything to do with Travelling - backpacking to staying in hotels.


I live in the Netherlands, but can share some knowledge on other countries in Europe as well!


Experienced land traveller across Europe (all except Portugal, Malta, Cyprus and Iceland), CIS etc. Been travelling more or less constantly for 10 years, and do average of 150k - 200k km per year. Have lived in UK, Neth, Liech, Switz, Ger and now Swe.

Don't fly, so excepting ferry portions, virtually all is train based. As i've had over 70 interrail tickets I guess that's my speciality, along with general timetable/day/night train issues etc. Also, map queries (i'm a cartographer), especially to do with London as i produce a large chunk of the public transport info for them. But I can help with virtually anything on Europe. Just ask.


I consider myself gotten pretty good at finding the cheapest way to get from A to B by public transport. I don't have a driver's license, my idea of "own vehicle" has two wheels, a saddle and 2 pedals.

I've been lucky (or unlucky enough) to recieve some legal training, my special interest is Schengen Visa law and German immigration and German citizenship issues.


As a travel agent I have travelled widely and can help with Europe, Australasia and the Pacific and Asia. I have good knowledge on hotels, ways to get around and things to see and do.


Lived in London for 2 years and Florence Italy for 6mths. Have done a lot of backpack travelling around western europe over the last 6 years and happy to help by sharing my experiences/advice with those who want!

I've visited most of European countries, all trips organized on my own and trying to minimize the budget. I'm a Polish citizen but lived also in Spain and Germany for some time. Also well experienced in various european mountains regions.

Schengen visa. Member t_maia and myself are the members who answer by far the most questions about Schengen visa. I once had some basic legal training and a good knowledge of European burocracy, so there's a fair chance that I succeed in answering your question (no guarantees).

++If you have a visa question, first read the 'Schengen visa' article in the Travel Guide, and have a look at the stickied thread on top of the Europe forum!!++

We have traveled Europe extensively (have visited every country several times), taking 13 trips in 8 different campervans, ranging from VWs to newer Hymers, logging well over 200,000 miles, total travel time of 9 years on the road.

Last summer I travelled for a month in ten different countries in Europe. I became a leader of the trip with my knowledge of map reading and my language skills with Spanish and some German. The chaperones of this trip designated me as the naviagtor of the bus. I led excursions into the cities to find laundromats, ATMs, public toilettes etc. I became familiar with many tricks when travelling in Europe and I believe that I can help answer many questions from prospective and current travellers. World travel is my passion and I wish to share it with others.

Are you looking for a book to read that is related to the journey you are going on? My obsession is to relate novels to places, categorising those that have a good 'sense of place' into their specific countries. So if you are going somewhere - I may be able to help you out with a great book to read before you go, or have some suggestions for books to take with you.

I have taken extended (3+ months, getting ready for another in August) trips through Europe at a slightly "older age" (I'm 35) than your average backpacker. I have always travelled light and cheap. More importantly, I travel alone so I feel I can help others, esp. women, travelling alone.
