Requesting tips, including Information I currently know and gear.
I just found this site while researching my trip... What a great resource.
I'm heading to Europe in a month or so and will be backpacking for 4 weeks. My destination... Estonia and most of the major cities (Tallinn, Oteppa, Tartu...). I'm also in the midst of heading south from there (Germany, Romania, Czech?) and possibly Stockholm...
I haven't backpacked Europe and wonder of the essentials to take for 4 weeks. Currently, I'm thinking of roughing this out (no hotels) just utilizing the hostels to charge my camera batteries and freshen up...
Current gear includes:
- msr tent
- sleeping bag & mat
- large gregory trecking pack
- waist belt (passport and others)
- light stove (coffee packs and dehydrated food packs)
- first aid kit
- cambers & rope
- water purifier & water bottle(s)
- trekking poles
- atomic watch
- compas & map
- utility knife
- non melt candles
- and a few other stuff
