Just curious if anyone has been to Europe (and more importantly backpacked Europe) and if they can share any suggestions that my soon-to-be husband and I should make sure to see. I have researched for months online and talked to people about places to go, backpacks to use, etc; but I would still love to hear suggestions. We are on a tight deadline time (~3 days/place with Italy having a week). We are both physically fit and love to be adventurous! Our itinerary is so: START April 28: Ireland - Scotland - England - Netherlands - Germany - France - Spain - Portugal - Italy and return back to Canada June 2. As well we are both students and are looking for free/inexpensive things to see and do.
Any recommendations/suggestions would be phenomenal!
