My name is Gurdass Mann and I am a student at the U of A in Edmonton Alberta Canada. I am male & 23 years old. I have been planning a trip to Europe for some time now, although my plans are still tentative in regards to being such and such place at such and such time, I was hoping to leave mid July, and was hoping to come back around 3rd week or last week of August. I currently just graduated from the U of A with BSc and was hoping to travel a bit especially in Europe before I go back to school. I have decided to place an ad on this globetroopers website because I was having a hard time finding friends/family that want to go.
I know I would like to visit UK, Netherlands, France, hopefully Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, possibly Portugal and as many other destinations as possible. The main transport that I have considered is the EU Rail pass that is a Global Pass for most of Europe. We were hoping to stay in hostels because they are a bit more easier on the wallet and plus you get to meet other people that are also backpacking through Europe.
One thing that I really want to do is I hope to be at the London 2012 olympic games for at least a little (a few days) just so we can take in the sights and sounds and if at all possible sit through an olympic event.
Well if you are still interested, please let me know because I hope to be booking tickets soon, hopefuly before the tickets skyrocket.
Hopefully we can form somesort of a travel companion group, we can meet up somewhere in Europe probably London, but let me know what you think? and if you have any ideas, or questions, about anything please feel free to ask.
I know this is fairly short notice, but I guess we can meet up along the trip if possible. I have two emails that I can be contacted through: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and you can also find me on facebook under Gurdass Mann if you look under W P Wagner or U of A networks. https://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=806815146
