Im a 24 year old from Philadelphia,PA. I graduated from WVU in 2010 with a chemistry degree and spend my time now making drugs for a major generic pharma company. That's getting boring and I'l be going to Grad school in the fall down at Clemson, in South Carolina. Over the summer, Im planning to cut out to Europe and spend my last month of freedom for 5 years getting me a little bit of culture.

I'm a laid back, adventurous fella, would never pass up a good time or a challange. I'm hoping to meet some fun folks on here who are looking to enjoy as unique of an experience as we can get during this trip.

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 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...

Hey I'm 25, 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.

Talk to ya,
Jason

TheJcor

TheJcor Hey guys and gals, Il be traveling from Florence to Prague from the 6thof July to the 19th of July (with no plans whatsoever, just a start and end date), whereupon I'l be meeting up with some college friends and traveling east to Antwerp for the Tomorrowland Festival. We'll most definitely be stopping in Amsterdam, Berlin, Belgium...pretty much anywhere and everywhere in between. It'd be nice to meet up with a few people going my/our way.
