Backpacking Europe by myself and for first time.

Jump to last reply

Hey guys I am 21 year old guy, and I am backpacking Europe for my very first time and by myself in 40 days (: . I am going to Europe for 43 days and only staying in hostels. I am planning on visiting 6 countries and 12 cities in 43 days. I am taking a budget of around $5,300 american dollars . All my flights and hostels will be taking care of and also my train passes hopefully. I am not really much into art or doing a lot of museums planing to do a few only like in Berlin and Italy. I am planning do a lot of sightseeing and going out to clubs and stuff and also drink a few, specially in Berlin with the Germans. Anyway these is my rough draft can y'all please tell me what y'all think of it. I need a lot help, is stressful specially planning by yourself. Since I want to do so much..

1. Barcelona ( 4 days )
2. Ibiza/Formentera (5 days )
3. Paris ( 2 days )
4. Amsterdam ( 3 days )
5. Berlin ( 4 days )
6. Venice ( 2 days )
7 Florence/Pisa ( one whole day and night for both)
8. Manarola (Cinque Terre towns) ( about 1 1/2 )
10. Rome ( 2 days )
9. Athens. ( half a day )
10.Mykonos ( 5 days )
11. Madrid ( 2 days )
12. Pamplona ( 5 days ) ( for running of the bulls )
13. Barcelona ( 3 1/2 ) fly back home.

Can y'all please tell me if I am trying to do too much? Or if I am staying too long in some places? Taking about 6 flights in Europe so that could save me some time. The reason I am staying couple of few more days mainly in Ibiza and Mykonos is because I love the beach and I could be in the water all day. But do y'all think if i cut some of the days in the Island I could add them to some other cities or maybe even a new country ? I was thinking about maybe Prague or even Switzerland . Also is their a train that you can take from Paris to Amsterdam that will stop kind of close to Normandy beach? will love to go there for half a day at least. Please tell me what I should change or anything. Like I said I need all the help I could get . Thanks
