Travel a month in Europe

The Actual Route I took backpacking through Europe. It changed my life.Before I embarked on a three month trip backpacking through Europe this past summer, I spent a ton of my time on researching the route I would take (which I ended up significantly deviating from) and places and things I wanted to see while there. What I didn’t put enough time into was picking up little tidbits of information on things I need to know as well as what I should or shouldn’t do. So, bearing that in mind, here are my tips for backpacking Europe after living through the experience firsthand.

You won’t regret it, and if you need something specific while there, just get it. That way you won’t be carrying around extra items a.k.a. weight for months on end. This is an often mentioned tip and I knew this tidbit going in, attempted to follow it, and still had way too many clothes. You would be surprised at just how little clothing you truly need while on a backpacking trip. For underwear and socks, three/four pairs will work fine. The caveat is that you will want exofficio boxers or boxer briefs (for guys) in the undies department.san fermin pamplona couchsurfing crew These bad boys are awesome. I bought three pair just before I left and couldn’t have been more pleased with my purchase. I’m actually in the process of getting rid of all my cotten boxers for good. For socks, two short pair and two long pair should be sufficient. With socks and underwear, you can take these into the shower with you and wash them while you are in there. They dry quickly enough to be fine by mid-morning the next day. At first, it will feel awkward doing it and you may get a couple funny looks, but after a few weeks you get into this uber traveler mode and it becomes just part of how you roll. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you get there. Things like rubber bands and plastic grocery bags become so much more useful than you would have ever imagined at that point.
