Sampler Backpacking Itinerary Advice

Jump to last reply

I will be leaving in May to backpack Europe for my first time. I have set up a sample itinerary but would like some advice and recommendations from veterans on how feasible this itinerary is and any recommendations for first time solo backpacking in Europe. This is my first trip so like all first-timers I am trying to visit major cities on the first go-around which may or may not be a mistake.

I am leaving in early May and have allotted 45 days to accomplish this itinerary:

*Flying into Dublin from Phoenix, Arizona*

Ireland - 3 Days
- Dublin

United Kingdom - 7-8 Days
- London (4 days)
- Salisbury (1 day)
- Bath (1 day)
- Cambridge (1 day)

France - 7 Days
- Paris (5 days)
- Versailles (1 day)
- Bayeux/Normandy (1 day)

Germany - 13 Days
- Berlin (4 days)
- Munich (4 days)
- Hamburg (2 days)
- Dresden (1 day)
- Heidelberg (2 days)

Czech - 4 Days
- Prague (4 days)

Benelux - 7
- Amsterdam (4 days)
- Brussel (3 days)

*Flying out of Brussels*


I have already paid for the plane tickets and Eurail pass; However, I am budgeting $3,600 for hostels, food, and entertainment. Is this enough money for 45 days living the backpacking lifestyle? Also, do you have any advice on cities to add or exchange, or any tips on any of the above city from a backpacking perspective. I am 20 years old, love history, nightlife, outdoors; I appreciate art but wouldn't go specifically seeking art museums or the likes except for the Louvre.
