Europe is a wonderful place to backpack. Here are my tips and tricks for backpacking Europe on a budget. Italy, Germany, Brussels, and Prague!
I recently backpacked around Europe for a one month period. I started in Italy and worked my way up to Germany, Belgium, The Czeck Republic and England. It was a short and fast trip but the memories are forever! Read on my friend..
The short story is that Prague has been a major player in global power for many centuries. In mideval times it was the third most important city, twice it was the capital of the Holy Roman Empire today it is one of the top-five most visited European cities. The country of Czech has been in and out of communism. I was engrossed to hear that Czech's freedom from communism
Berlin is actually one of the only major European cities without a structured city-center. With all the past years of war and destruction, it's easy to see why they are still building and rebuilding their culture and economy. The current construction projects were meant to shape a city center. There would be a five-museum complex and even a huge beautiful building that was completely open to suggestions for its use.
Italy; the most beautiful, romantic overcrowded and over-touristic country there is. Italy has so much to offer it's no wonder the whole world aims to see it. The historic churches, the delightful food and the gorgeous countryside are just a few reasons why this country is great for backpacking.
I arrived in Cinque Terre from Florence around 10am. That gave me just enough time to lather on sunscreen, drop my baggage off at the hostel and grab a map of the trails. I only previously learned about the existence of Cinque Terre (which means Five Lands in Italian) while I was on my flight to Italy. It was a small paragraph in my travel book and I thought it sounded interesting, though I hadn't the foggiest idea as to what it was.
