So I've been wanting to do this my whole life, I'm about to turn 25, and I don't want to wait any longer. I want to travel through Europe, heading first to Amsterdam and then wherever the road takes me from there. I want to meet up with someone who would be interested in doing the same and enjoying the adventure together, there is something very appealing about making friends with complete strangers and exploring new places for the first time. I plan on living in europe for a while, traveling as much as possible, WWOOFing and finding other under the table jobs in cities or towns I particularly like. I know this is very vague but I think planning the trip a little more together would be better, but I still want room to be spontaneous and go when and where we want to go.

Sounds great, there's a lot of interesting places to discover in Europe. Do some research to get a few ideas where you might want to go, it doesn't hurt to be prepared and you can still be spontaneous. Good luck, I hope you'll have a great adventure!

Go for it!

Remember to have enough money in reserve to go home if things go bad, or for emergency medical care.
I've had to dip into that reserve a few times, and not regretted having it once.

Its really not that expensive, especially if you volunteer for housing and food!

Be careful in Europe. You get precisely 3 months before yoiu become an illegal entrant. The time goes very fast. Look at the schengen and non-schengen countries very differently.

Oh- some hints for an interesting trip:

Visit Hungary and Romania.

PS: a kind of warning. If someone seems over interested in you and just happens to speak good english, be double careful!

Lots of other things to do, of course.!!!!
