Backpacking through Europe in Winter!

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am relatively new to this website but I just wanted to get some opinions on my travel itinerary for my upcoming trip.

Let it be noted that I know my travel is a bit all over the place (a lot all over the place) but I wanted to be in specific places at certain times (eg Edinburgh over new years and Paris over christmas). I also know there is a bit of backtracking but this is usually because it meant the cost of internal fights would end up cheaper.

And in case it makes a difference I am a solo female backpacker (20 years old) from Australia :)

December 3: Arrive in Amsterdam (3 days)
Dec 6: Rail to Berlin (3 days)
Dec 9: Rail to Prague (3 days)
Dec 12: Rail to Budapest (3 days)
Dec 15: Fly to Madrid (4 days)
Dec 19: Rail to Barcelona (3 days)
Dec 22: Rail to Paris (5 days/4 nights)
Dec 26: Rail to Edinburgh (overnight train)
Dec 27: Planned tour from Edinburgh to Isle of Skye
Dec 30: Edinburgh (6 days) ((I know this is a lot but I LOVED Edinburgh on my last trip))
Jan 4: London (3 days)
Jan 7: Reykjavik (6 days)
Jan 13: Florence (3 days)
Jan 16: Rome (4 days)
Jan 20: Venice (4 days)
Jan 24: Fly Home!


Thoughts anyone??
