Backpacking in Europe during Winters - good or bad idea?

Jump to last reply

We are a married couple from India who are thinking of backpacking across Europe during the months of Oct - Nov - Dec - Jan in 2014? Want your opinion if this is a bad/good idea? We are on an extremely tight budget. We've never backpacked ever!

Our very tentative schedule is pasted below – (This could easily be rescheduled :))

Mumbai –> Sweden –> Norway –> Switzerland –> France –> Spain –> Italy –> Greece –> Turkey –> Delhi

Date wise schedule -

Sweden, 2nd Oct – 12th Oct, 2014, Stockholm

Norway, 13th Oct – 25th Oct, 2014, Oslo

Switzerland, 26th Oct – 16th Nov, 2013, Geneva, Zurich, Jungfrau, Bern

France, 17th Nov – 1st Dec, 2014, Lille, Paris,

Spain, 2nd Dec – 16th Dec, 2014, Barcelona, Madrid

Italy, 16th Dec – 3rd Jan, 2015, Rome, Florence, Milan, Venice, Vatican

Greece, 4th Jan – 14th Jan, 2015

Turkey, 15th Jan – 31st Jan, 2015, Istanbul, Antalya

Is this doable (hope it is!!) or totally ludicrous? Do suggest the cities/places that we must visit. All your other inputs with regards to the accommodation, clothes, visa, euro rail passes, backpacks and shoes would be hugely appreciated. And if you happen to be in our place of stay, drop us a line, we would be happy to meet you and perhaps give you an Indian culinary experience. Also, does it make more sense to visit Europe in Aug - Sept - Oct - Nov?
