    I'm hoping to backpack Europe next summer with a friend, France is number one on my list as I've always wanted to visit there, also keen to visit Germany and maybe Italy. But I'm not too fussed I'll go wherever my friend things is the best route.

    Are you at uni? If so, how do you afford it?

    Well if you go to Pompeii, you can see my mum's dad as a petrified mummy on the floor as he died to a pyroclastic flow.
    I've been to Pompeii, don't remember seeing that :giggle:

    I am at uni yes, I'm a very good saver and I have some money in saving s(though not a lot so this will be a one time thing). A European all country rail pass is only £214 which sounds a lot as a lump for 2 weeks that's pretty good to visit any country you feel like. We will likely be camping for a lot of it to save on any hotel costs though we will likely spend some nights in hostels which are considerably cheaper than hotels. I don't eat that much and I'm not that fussy on food either so I'm fine with heating some cans over a campfire for dinner.

    If you're going to Stockholm, I recommend city backer's hostel. It's arguably the best hostel in Stockholm according to ratings and reviews. I paid around £10 per night when I went but I think it's more during the summer. Youthhostel in Zurich is very clean too.

    I paid £90 to travel from Zurich to Vienna by train and it angered me when my ticket wasn't inspected, as I very easily could have boarded the train without one but I wouldn't take that risk.

    Oooh thank you! That's fantastic advice I'll keep that in mind, really I'm not fussed on where I sleep so long as it doesn't rack up bills I can't afford so £10 a night sounds phenomenal.

    Oh I know how you feel on the not having expensive tickets checked! Though I'd be far to scared to not pay, especially in a country where I don't speak the language!

    Japan cause I love the shops there xD
    USA and Canada because they both seem awesome (and my brother is moving to Canada soon)
    Australia because of the climate really (and my other brother lives there)
    New Zealand because I know people who moved there 7 years ago and I'd love to visit them

    Thats a difficult question it depends on if you mean just for having a great time or for actually living somewhere.

    For living: Loved Canada and Australia

    For Epic Times: Cancun, Las Vegas

    In Europe, I'd specifically like to go to Germany, Austria, Italy and Sweden (). In the rest of the world, probably the USA, Canada and China.

    I'd never go to Australia because big spiders are common.
