Name Europe in July

Firstly, ignore the cost. I dont know what it'l be, nor can I say I care. You cannot put a price on a good time.
I'm going to to be traveling from Italy (probably Florence) to Prague from July 6th to the 19th. I've no solid plans on how to get there, what I'll do in between, who I'll meet and what I'll see, and I wouldn't have in any other way.

Once in Prague, I'm meeting up with some of my best friends from college and we're going to rock on through Western Europe, Berlin, Amsterdam, Belgium and any little town on the way. We want to end up in Antwerp for Tomorrowland, but again, that is probably our only concrete plan.

In my travel north, I'll probably be looking to hostels, couch surfing, those "work for a day and get a meal" places, and hopefully have a really excellent time.

If you'd be interested in running around the EU with me and my friends for a few weeks, drop me a line. We party, enjoy the heck outta music and laughter and are generally looking for an unbelievable experience that we will never forget.

Anne I like the way your talking. I will be starting off in Ireland and then traveling over and down from there. I plan on backpacking for 3 weeks or so but like you said no set plans. I thought about getting just a one way there and dealing with it then but...anyways have you traveled to Europe before? How do you go about looking for "work for a day and get a meal" places? That sounds very intriguing and awesome! It is all about the experience and that is what I want to get out of it for sure!

TheJcor Hey Anne! Good to meet you...in writing anyway, haha. When are you going to be traveling? This will be my first time in any of the European countries, so needless to say, I'm really stoked for the trip.

I found a few sites courtesy of that wonderful timewaster, StumbleUpon, where hosts and those looking to be hosted can throw a post up. I've been looking around workaway.info in particular, there's a ton of stuff on there all of the world. I was planning on using this site to make a few jumps around on the way to Prague, hopefully find a barteding gig for a night or two, or even picking olives or painting a fence haha.

Are you going to be in the area (super broad, i know) when we are?

Anne Well, I plan on starting in Ireland, then taking a ferry to the UK then working my way over and down if that makes sense to Amsterdam, Germany, Paris, France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and then end up in Greece, then take a flight back to the US. I don't think i'll be traveling to Prague, everywhere around there ha ha of course. Will you be traveling to anywhere I am going? Picking olives sounds fun.

TheJcor It sounds like we'l cross right in the middle. Il be in Italy the end of June to the first week of july, then headed north. Ive got 2 weeks from the 5th of July to get to Prague to meet some buddies so anywhere in between then is an adventure. Sounds like Switzerland or Eastern Germany is goigng to be the closest we get...I wouldnt be in the Netherlands/Berlin area until after I meet up with my friends, on the way to Tomorrowland.

TheJcor
TheJcor Yes! Florence on the 5th of July, then not too sure where. I was entertaining the idea of maybe going to Greece and headed north from there to Prague, but im still not too sure.

Anne well...I guess that is the whole point right? I know the places I want to go but that's about it. Everything else is just winging it when i get there. Let me know if you make some more concrete plans on places you want to go. I am not going to Prague that I know of yet but who knows it could happen...

TheJcor Hey Anne! Sorry it took so long to get back. I have also got my tickets... I will be all over Italy from the 21st of June to the 3rd or so, when I will be in Florance. From there, I want to do a day or two in Venice, then rail back to Milan/Genoa and then go through Switzerland and Austria on the way to the Czech Republic and Prague for the 19th of July. Seriously still dont know what Im going to do in between those dates haha. anything and everything I guess!
