First Time Backpacking Europe: May 15-June 12 2013

Jump to last reply

Here is our trip plan for Europe from May 16 through June 12 2013. I will be traveling with a friend and we are both first time backpackers. We are both 21 years old and are currently in college. We have purchased the plan tickets and that is about as far as we have gone. We have a plan but that is about it.

London 4 days, Paris 4 days, Geneva 4 days, Venice 3 days, Zurich 3 days, Luxembourg 2 days, Brussels 3 days, Amsterdam 2 days

May 16: Fly into London at 12:05 pm
May 17-19: Time in London
May 20: Leave for Paris
May 21-23: Time in Paris and Versailles
May 24: Leave for Switzerland
May 25-27: Geneva or other areas
May 28: Leave for Venice
May 29-30: Time in Venice
May 31: Leave back to Switzerland
June 1-2: Zurich or other areas
June 3: Leave for Luxembourg
June 4: Time in Luxembourg
June 5: Leave for Brussels
June 6-7: Time in Brussels
June 8: Leave for Amsterdam
June 9-10: Time in Amsterdam
June 11: Extra day
June 12: Fly out at 10:25 am for Minneapolis

Note* We are not sure what the best route is but this seemed practical but not sure if we should go through Switzerland in two parts or complete it all in 7 days than go to Venice?

This is a rough idea we have planned for our trip. I understand we may have things planned that are not possible or things we are missing. PLEASE provide me with any information on what you think and what would work better. I am open to and comments or suggestions that will help this trip come together.

We have not purchased anything besides the plane ticket, thus we still need to purchase rail passes, hostels, etc. any helpful ideas or tips on what to purchase and when to purchase if not already would be grateful.

Thanks and I will be excited to hear your comments

Go Bison!
