Backpacking Through Europe Guide

Jump to last reply

Hey everyone, so I'm thinking of heading over to Europe June 2017.
Here is a rough guideline of to what I am wanting to do. As i am a female and will be travelling solo, I was thinking of going over and firstly starting off on a Contiki. Just to get the layout of the land, meet some people, build confidence then once the tour is over start to back pack around Europe. Basically I am just after a rundown on things i will need, and what to do and how to prepare myself. As i am wanting to work and travel to help earn money along the way, will i need to apply for a working Visa? and if so how will i go about attaining this.
For anyone who has done something like this before, If you could help out it would be greatly appreciated. How long did you go for, how much money did you save before heading over? What are the cheapest ways to travel and how to help stick to a daily budget. There is a huge long list of things i could sit here and ask, but hopefully i make sense and you can all help me out. As mentioned above, i was thinking of heading over in June 2017, and i do not have a deadline to how long i am travelling for. I know i could go and research all this, but it would be alot easier if i had a guideline so i knew what i had to do, and what had to be done.
Thanksss!!
