TheJcor

TheJcor Hey guys and gals! I'm 24, graduated from WVU and headed to Clemson for graduate school. I'm going to be in Europe from June 21st to July 30th: I'm going to be in Italy with my family and some friends from June 21st to July 3rd. They fly out of Rome then, but I will be staying behind, most likely will be in Florance on the 4th, and then am traveling solo to Prague, most likely by rail/hiking through Austria and Switzerland, stopping wherever on the way. I've got to be in Prague by the 19th, to meet some college friends on the 20th, and then we are all traveling westward toward Amsterdam, Berlin, Antwerp, and finally leaving out of Brussels on the 30th of July. I've never done any traveling in Europe so, I'm kinda keeping my plans loose, just have those few concrete dates. If you'd like to join up anywhere along the line, definitely drop me a line, sounds like we have some similar plans.

Carotafur I am a 23 year old female that loves to travel and enjoys meeting people from all different walks of lives. I am currently attending UC DAVIS where I am pursuing my masters in accounting. When I am not studying or volunteering, I am traveling . Anyhow, I am looking for fellow backpackers that are willing to travel through Europe this summer . I already purchased all my tickets, thus, my schedule is not too flexible. I start my journey in Venice (end of may) from there I will be going to Milan, Turin, Rome and Florence . By June 14th I will be in Spain where I will visit Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona . On June 22 I will be traveling to amsterdam where I will stay for 5 days. Next , London , where I will be staying for 5 weeks from June 27 to Aug 4 I was accepted to take a summer class at imperial college of London) after I complete the 5 week course I will be traveling from London to Belgium where I will visit Brussels and Brugge. I will continue to Paris ( for a week) and finalize my journey with Germany ( Berlin and hamburg ) I am hoping to find and meet amazing people along the way ! If you are one of those people send me a message through here or through my Facebook :)

Lizzy Hi! This sounds similar to what I would like to do post-grad. My sister and I are planning on going in early May and hanging out for a few weeks (ideally six, but probably will only be able to stay about a month). Let me know if you're interested in meeting up anywhere along the way!

Nate Hi Josh, unfortunately I already have a travel partner for the majority of my trip. If you want to meet up for a week or two that would work although for the three weeks I'm traveling alone I have an agenda. Let me know if you are interested in getting together for a week or two in late may. I will be traveling from Paris to Amsterdam. Otherwise good luck and have fun!
