Two Month Solo Backpacking In Europe

Europe is perhaps the most friendly continent in the world for solo-backpackers. With easy border crossing, a world-class public transport system, and more youth hostels than anywhere else in the world, Europe is meant for backpackers, and for travelling a few countries in just one go.

Earlier in 2017 — between April and May — I travelled across 8 countries in Europe over a period of two months (or 58 days to be precise). I started from Zurich in Switzerland and completed a loop while travelling across Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia and Italy, before flying back to India from Zurich again, and it was a whirlwind experience. I stayed with local families in Germany & Italy, explored Swiss Alps, tried Segway in Rome, and had many other memorable experiences.

Presenting in a quick 3-minute video, here’re some highlights from my two-month backpacking trip across Europe:

After my couple of years of corporate career, I left that lifestyle behind, and with it, everything that didn't fit in a backpack. I've learned that this world is too big (and too interesting!) to spend your life working at one place, and that's what inspires me to remain footloose and fancy-free for the rest of my life!

    I am going as a solo tourist to Europe and while applying for schenghen visa I was told that my age limit is the factor for the visa getting cancelled as I am not above 30. So is it true that my visa can get canceled due to this reason? Please guide me through this as I am very eager to travel to Europe.

    • I don’t think age can be a factor here as I’m also under 30 right now & I still got the visa, despite clearly mentioning that I will be travelling on my own. Did they mention in the rejected letter that the reason for rejection is “you’re not above 30 years old”?
