Please advise me, i have never backpaced before, im 23, a student from the UK, im not sure weather i will have enough cash, i could properly save a bit more cash upmaybe 2000 us dollars.

Also a bit concerned about going by myself, not for security but just being lonley, though im sure i will meet people out there, well, hopefully.

If anybodyelse is heading to similar destinations please get in touch, my route is not set in stone and can be changed at anytime.

Hey Man,

I’ll be traveling around the same time (July 4 to Aug 4) alone as well. I’m not sure that you’ll have enough time to go to all those places but then again this is my first Backpack trip too so I could be wrong. Check out my trip for maybe something that is a bit more feasible. If youd like to chat more let me know

I would head for the 2000 mark rather than 1500. Don’t worry about travelling alone, it’s a great experience and thousand’s of people do it every summer. Look for good social hostel’s where you can easily meet fellow traveller’s Sometimes travelling alone can be more sociable than travelling with a partner or in a small group, because it forces you to meet people rather than stick with who you know.

I think you may be pushing it a bit with number of place’s try and cut it down slightly.

cheers mate, ryanair are doing flights to amsterdam for a tenner (taxs included) so im gonna cut out belgium, and properly take about £1750, i will be staying in france with a friend so no need to get accomodation, as with london, when in amsterdam im thinking the hans brinker hostel, dirt cheap, stayed there last tim i went and loved it, then half of the other places im off to is eastern europe so hopefully the cost will be half the price of everywhere else.
