Backpack in hand, you are ready to go to Europe for fun and sunshine. Here are some suggestions for backpacker from someone who has done it many times and made a mistake.

Tips for backpackers to travel in Europe

According to my personal opinion, spending a few weeks or months of hiking in Europe should be a mandatory task for everyone. True, it can’t really be called a task because you’ll love every minute of it. After hiking in Europe more often than I can count, here are some lessons that I learned that can help you.

The first suggestion is to limit the number of items you take. Europe is not located on the distant planet. If you can buy it here, you can buy it there. This includes items such as soap, socks, toothpaste, disposable digital cameras, and guides. I guarantee you will take too much waste with you. Make one or two pairs of shoes, shorts, a pair of pants (admission to the museum and the church) and a couple of shirts is all you need. If you need anything else, you can buy it there.

There are many things to see and do in Europe, so most people want to maximize their time. One way to do this is to go to sleep at the same time. Yes, I’m talking about the night train. When you move from one place to another, try to ride the train and the last sleep during the trip. You only have a certain amount of time. Taking this approach will prevent you from wasting your time during the day.

One of the main suggestions I can offer you is to use your common sense. If you don’t walk down the aisle or go into hiding places in the house, why would you do it in Europe? Europe is very safe and welcoming. That being said, each location has rough spots. Avoid them. Especially in Eastern European countries. Trust me on this one!

To maximize your experience, it is better to get out of the way. When you visit the city, spend at least one day in the city outside the city limits. You will discover the true nature of the country. Fewer tourists, so people tend to be interested in talking with you. There is always a group of men sitting in a café. Join them and you’ll laugh for hours. I do this in Austria and finally, speak a week in a small village named Halstatt. One of the best I’ve ever had.

When it comes to overthrowing the backpacker and Europe, this last suggestion is very important. Don’t try to see it all. Stick to a country for two weeks, but not less than a week. This allows you to make the most of your visit.

Yes, there is another country, but you have to go back to see it.
