Has anyone here...

...ever backpacked across Europe? From what I understand it used to be common for students to just take off,and go on long trips totally on the spur of the moment. Sounds fun...

Re: Has anyone here...

I did many,many year ago.I was born and raised in Berlin/Germany.
At 18 a few friends and i decided to do some backpacking.We took a train through former east-Germany,and then backpacked through Germany to Belgium ,England,Holland,Netherlands back to Berlin,we had a blast.We also did some hitchhiking(young and foolish )i would not recommend to do that.

I haven't backpacked in Europe, but a few people I know have.

I don't know, Europe doesn't attract me the way Africa or Asia does; two regions where I have been backpacking. I went to Africa on my own, and I did hitch-hike!

I would not recommend it for the simple fact that if something happens to you then most likely your family will not know for some time.

And that's why you plan this sort of trip, let people know where you are going and keep in touch with people.
