Seeking: Travel buddy for 8 weeks in Europe

Advertisement
Planning on traveling Europe this Summer. I was supposed to travel with my best friend but she dropped out the last second, so I'm trying to find a travel buddy because traveling alone for about 8 weeks seems a little daunting.

Hey everyone,

I'm 20, a chick, from Los Angeles. I'm planning to travel to Europe July 5-August 25. I'll be trying to hit up the party cities and also cities with lots of history behind them. (Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Venice, Rome, Paris, London)

I have most of the trip planned out. It's pretty flexible of course. I plan to couchsurf and stay in hostels to save. Eurail pass would be purchased for 4 countries to get around.

My friend and I were supposed to go together, but she bailed on me. I really still want to go and I'd like to find someone that's interested in traveling to these places with me or even partially.


The itinerary is the link below.

G'day Evangeline,

Just go for it You wont be alone when on the road in Europe in summer as thousands of other backpackers will be going along with you! I understand it may be daunting to think your going by yourself but you wont be at all..

Couchsurfing is fantastic and Diana and I host and surf all the time. Alone girls also (one from US yesterday) and we have had plently in the past. Just search for either couples or girls living together to be more safe. I will add my profile below:
