EMC Hi! I'm looking to backpack Europe around that time. I', love to go to Italy, France, Greece and the places you listed. I can be gone for a few months... so I think its possible to accomplish. Are you open to staying in hostels?
raleighdm2 Hi Jake! I am currently studying in Shanghai and looking for a travel buddy during my winter break (roughly Jan 1-Feb 20). I am planning on exploring more of China and possibly Japan, Phillipines or Taiwan, since I will be visiting the rest of S.E. Asia at another point. If you are interested in possibly beginning in China before moving on, I could use a travel partner! I even speak Chinese ;)
