How to Plan a Backpacking Trip Through Europe

  • 187 days ago
  • Europe is famous for its scenic beauty, its cultural heritage, and the immense diversity of its culinary artistry. The biggest attraction of Europe is the fact that it has innumerable attractions: Athens, where democracy was born; Florence, where the art of Renaissance came to life; the ever-flowing canals of Venice; the breathtaking splendor of Paris, and the cultural history and diversity of London. Some attractions that aren’t as well-known are Moorish palaces located in Andalucía; the mingling of the East and the West in Istanbul, Turkey; the meticulously restored imperial palaces in St Petersburg, the former capital of Russia, and the unfinished Roman Catholic church, the Basilica I Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia, in Barcelona.

    The best way to enjoy the sprawling cities and quaint villages of Europe is to backpack through the continent. To get up close and personal, all you need to do is strap on a backpack, make sure your international sim card for Europe is activated, and you are all set to enjoy this great melting pot of humanity, culture, and tradition.

    Here are some tips and tricks that will help you in your backpacking journey through Europe:

    Pack Light : Streamline what you need to bring with you. Five pairs of jeans will only slow you down when you’re hiking or running for the train. Another tip to keep in mind is to leave all valuable and sentimental stuff behind at home, as you don’t want to risk losing it. Only pack what you can replace and save yourself the cost of overweight fees on your luggage.

    Stay Connected : Wherever you travel, stay connected to your loved ones. Purchase a Europe sim card in India, before you depart. A roaming sim card for Europe will help you share precious memories with friends and family. Since the best global sim cards for Europe also have internet data plans included, you will always have help with the local language as well as directions if you get lost.

    Camping and Hostels : If you can, try to camp out. Many cities in Europe offer comfy campgrounds where you can set up camp and save on your monetary resources. However, camping isn’t for everyone. You might not be able to carry your own gear, or you might be more comfortable sleeping with a roof over your head. There are hundreds of backpacker friendly hotels everywhere. The best ones have free breakfast, while the others might have a communal kitchen.

    Train Pass : In many cities, especially cities in Western Europe, train passes can be pre-purchased and can save you a ton of money. These passes will allow you to travel all around the country, without needing to pay anything but the initial cost of the pass, for a set period of time. Train-hopping also gives you the advantage of spectacular views.

    The best part of backpacking is that you define the rules. Plan your backpacking trip, play it smart, and have the time of your lives!
