Hey Sam, I'm Sam as well. I'm 21 from Ottawa but currently living in Southern Germany working as an au-pair and traveling on weekends and time off. I am done working by August and am hoping to backpack for a month or two. I've been thinking southwest europe like Spain and Portugal because ive never been. I've traveled quite a bit but no backpacking for any amiunt of time id consider long. Living like a hippie and having an amazig time for the last two months of me being in europe sounds like exavtly what I want to do. Message me if youre looking for a travel bud for that time slot!
