First time traveling to Europe. London-Amsterdam-Paris

Jump to last reply

Hello! Newbie to the forum. Would appriceate any advice.

Anyways, long story short I’ve been miserable at my job and questioning the meaning of my life. Just miserable. I’ve decided to make some changes, but before I move to a new city a start new, I’ve decided to travel to Europe mid-october thru mid-december!

I’ll be traveling/backpacking solo and this will be my first time out of the country. I’m from California btw. I’m going to begin in London, and want to make my way to Amsterdam, Paris and then Barcelona. There’s so much to see and do, I’m not sure how much time I will need. I’ve also thought if I commit to two months or so maybe I could make it to Italy also.

Does anyone have any tips or advice for my trip. I’ll being staying in hostels and utitilizing couchsurfing. How much time should I allow for. What kind of weather should I anticipate? Has anyone traveled during this time of year? Experiences? Any hidden/unique places I should visit between cities? Thanks.
