Backpacking through Europe is the most popular way for broke people to turn their fantasies of a European adventure into a reality. There is simply no cheaper way to see all the sites Europe has to offer than with a fistful of Euros and a backpack slung around your shoulders. In this short article, we will give you a few tips to consider before hopping on that glorious plane headed for Heathrow.
One thing you want to square away before heading to Europe is where you will be staying. If you are traveling in summer, you may want to check if universities in the areas you are visiting have accommodation.

Also, if you don’t mind really roughing it, you could save a great deal of money by camping in designated areas for a few days.
