I am a 19 year old man, and am a huge runner that is planning on backpacking europe in june. I have a question for the people who have already backpacked through europe. If I needed to stash my big hiking pack somewhere during the day, to say maybe… go for a run – where would I put it?

Also, if your a runner as well who has toured europe… any other tips (like fun places to run) would be great!

Just leave it back at the hostel would be the obvious answer, Some train or bus stations also have lockers or left luggage rooms.

I am leaving from Glasgow, United Kingdom and traveling for 15 days

Options — in order starting with best:
1. Your hostel or hotel — You can usually store your pack even if you arrive before check-in time or need to leave your pack after check-out time
2. train station left luggage room or locker (3 to 5 euros)
3. Check room at museum or tourist attraction (usually free with admission ticket, sometimes there’s an extra charge)

I’d wear a money belt for cash, credit and debit cards and your passport.
