Name Backpacking/Working Europe in Spring ~ 2011 ~

Hi there! Currently living Birsbane Australia - I am planning a trip starting in London......heading to France, Ireland, Sweden etc etc....but, major budget so would like to hop countries while working there too - anything from bar work, cleaning, waiter, front desk, teaching english etc...just odd jobs to get by - but will have some back up money just incase it isn't that easy to find work...

So it wont be a luxuary trip - not for me anyway, more like hostels and 2 minute noodels. I like the cheap thrills in life...

Heres a few ideas:

- Bike ride around Holland
- Work in a bakery in France (yum)
- go to 'cafes' in Amsterdam
- Hike the Alps
- Head to the countryside in Sweden, Norway, etc
- Drink beer in Germany
- Drink Whisky in Ireland
- Learn French

And alot more!

Would really like to have a trusty travel friend with me to do this and someone who is willing to work to earn money in order to hop to the next country. I'm very flexible with what countries to visit aswell. I'm a very laid back person just desperate to get out of this rat race and do something different with my life. I love trekking/hiking so would like to take time to explore the wilderness areas of these countries aswell when possible. Send me a msg here if you are interested and we can start chatting about it/planning it!

I plan to go for a few months - no time limit, I would prefer to go in Spring but am flexable!

Jess

jessilea Hey Jess, Im Jess from NSW, im in the process of making plans to go over to Europe in March 2011. Ive never been to Europe be4, and only been overseas in the US last yr on a contiki trip so im kinda new at all this. Your trip plans sound great, r u at all planning on going to Rome and the Mediteranian to Athens?? I would love to follow a contiki like program but in my own time spending more than 2 nights in most places. Im also keen on working over there so i can stretch my trip a little further. Have u made any other plans yet, let me know if you're keen on a travel buddy!! Jess

Remy I like the sound of your trip. I had planned to be in SE Asia around September before flying to North America, but am now leaning towards Europe and postponing my American trip until later in 2011. I'd like to see as much as practical, and especially by bike where possible. I'm also a keen hiker and love the untrammelled, so The Alps, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe are high on my list...

Jessica_Alice Hi Remy! I have decided it would be best for me to change the dates of this (as I'm sure I will run out of money before being able to even get to Europe). I will be going now in their spring next year, early april...hopefully march! If you are still interested with those dates let me know :) Jess
