Backpacking Europe

Less Than 90 Days – Backpacking

Backpacking Adventure

In less than 90 days Sarah will have arrived in The Netherlands and the European Backpacking Adventure can begin. We won’t be leaving to explore Europe right away, as I have a few days of work left at that time but that doesn’t make things less exciting.


The plan right now is to backpack around Europe by train and visit some beautiful cities like Paris and Rome and see stunning views in Austria amongst others. But hey, it’s not set in stone so things could change last minute. That’s the exciting part of backpacking, things can change in an instant and take a whole new direction. Adventures for sure!

Extra Adventurous or Trouble?

What makes this trip even more adventurous (or at least according to some, I’m not in the least bit worried about it) is that Sarah and I never met, at least face to face. We’re family and have spoken to each other a lot and it’s safe to say we have a lot in common and get along well. I’m convinced that this isn’t going to be an issue at all, because hey we’re WHANAU 😉

I still need to get a few things for the trip in the next few months but they’re all minor so that’s going to be a breeze. I even managed to fit my tripod for my SLR in my daypack without being it too heavy to carry so I’m seriously considering taking it. It might make taking photos at certain locations so much easier :). I do still need to get a remote for the camera. That’s one thing I’m sure off I’ll use a lot. Not only on the road but also at home when I find some free, so it will be a good investment.

Have you been to Europe and what would you recommend we really should see?

    Reading this makes me so excited for you. Europe’s great.. of course Paris is a must see and I’d suggest Switzerland if you like scenic views and mountains : ) I’m hoping to visit Europe again next month! Have a great trip!

      Thank you for your tips! Both Paris and Switzerland are on the list to go see and I can’t wait to see some stunning mountain views!

      I hope you get to go to Europe again, there are so many different beautiful places here it’s just so hard to choose what to go see. Enjoy your trip
