Life on the road in Europe... my home is a backpack

So.. I was just curious what everyone thought, or whether they have had experiences like this before. I posted something about it in another thread and got neg repped for some reason....

I'm backpacking Europe, and have been for the last 2 months, first in Portugal, now in Spain. I'll be going to Morocco, next, and onto several other countries including England, Turkey, France, Italy, and Greece... Not sure where else. Life on the road is too amazing. I've never felt so free, or alive. I feel like this is the way life is supposed to be. In the last few days I've been living with some Spanish girls in Barcelona, who are all beautiful by the way... and I started hooking up with one of them last night. I feel like I'm in a dream... or a movie. Anyone else have similar experiences.

Make sure you stop at Slovenia. I haven't backpacked through Europe yet but it's on my bucket list.

How are you red again? my Positive rep put u up like green 4 bars xD

Yea bro. I've been there, over 9 months spending 2-3days a week in a new place, new city with new people. Was some of the best times of my life. Make sure to use condoms. I managed to "come" away from all the experiences without any diseases (aside from the one I already had anyways)

I've said this like 3 times, go check out austria. Do it, its ******* amazing. You'll be thanking me

backpacking is so much fun. Europe is such a good place to do it too since it doesnt take you long to be in a place with different culture, language and architechture.

Ive backpacked twice in europe, once for 9 months and another time for a month and a half.

Switzerland, although being expensive, is really fun. The only things that arent expensive there are weed, beer and smokes... not bad if youre on the road. Also when I went, weed was pretty much tolerated, you could buy it in stores.

Vienna is one of the most beautiful cities Ive seen in my life, definatly worth the stop.

Actually it would be way too long to name all the great places ive dicovered in europe. Just have fun, dont worry about tomorrow and youll be fine.

Good luck, have fun and wear protection

No clue... I got neg repped like 5 times for posting this elsewhere.... I have no idea why... Either way. I definitely want to check out Austria. I have to see Freud's house ;-)

It's only a matter of time 'til you get robbed. Mainland Europe is ******* terrible for it. Keep your wallet hidden and close to your heart.

thanks for the advice. I've been lucky so far. I rarely am out at night without a large group... I don't usually go out to bars unless I am with people that I have met. so maybe that's why? I've heard Barcelona is terrible... I don't want to jinx myself though saying it hasn't happened yet.
