What are the pros and cons for backpacking around Europe?
Pros: -The best pro I think is how you realize how new America is. Most of the sights to see there are 1,000s of years old while ours are only a few hundred. -Not saying at you’re death bed, “I never saw Paris.” 😛 -Plenty of exorcise. -Getting to see your roots. Cons: -Unless you know plenty of foreign languages you’re going to need to be fluent in “I don’t speak…” in many languages. -2 months will roughly cost $5,000-$6,000 and unless you have a rich parent, will take more than puppy dog eye’s to earn. -Plenty of exorcise. All and all I think backpacking to Europe will be a great experience, especially when I go this summer. And one thing to always look foward to is the 18 year drinking age and the great bragging rights.
