    Hey thank you so much for the tips! Backpacking through Europe has always been a dream of mine but i didnt think i would actually be able to do it. This video gave me a ton of inspiration to follow my dreams((: I enjoy your videos and look up to the way you live your life. I really hope to go after i graduate High School and i just turned 15 and ive been saving up bills down to pennies. I still have time to get a job and save up more money but i was wondering if you think i could gather enough money to go for about 2-3 months if i stay dedicated and work? I plan on traveling on a low or medium budget because i know that it doesnt matter if get the best of everything because im going there to get out of my comfort zone. I do want to have fun at the same time though. Thanks for your time, i appreciate it!

    I'm not sure what the no-WiFi thing is about. I've back-packed Spain, France, England, Ireland, Scotland, and elsewhere in the world. I have found nearly every decent restaurant in Europe, typically free. Just asked the food server for the password. Also – some cell carriers offer FREE international data. Specifically Sprint and T-Mobile does this, probably others. Verizon and ATT does not. It will be very slow, (like 2G), but free. For an extra fee they will bump it up but 2G is enough for Google Maps, worth it's weight in gold. Option B, purchase a SIM card for a major European carrier. They are generally cheep and will get you on the full wireless network. (Robs thoughts for the day).

    This video was everything I didn't know I needed to hear and I'm so grateful to have stumbled upon your video! I'm traveling alone to Europe in 3 weeks and I couldn't be more excited. I've traveled alone before, and I've been to Europe with my family, but something about hearing your personal experience makes me even more excited than I was before. All your tips helped me tons, thanks sooo much and I hope you enjoyed your trip to Aus! xx

    when you say you have to pay more for seats on the train, is that all the time, or just if its overnight and you want to get a bed?

    Instead of using a train, look at Flixbus. You can get to the big citys in europe for really cheap. For instance from munich to berlin costs €25,- it does take 7 hours but there are also overnight busses

    A tip on mobile data, Google's $10 per gig applies in quite a few countries, including most if not all of Europe.

    Great tips. But I have a remark regarding the wifi. I was in Holland and the chezk republic @ 2014 and I had no issues with wifi. Many places around had free wifi too like museums, restaurants and so on. I once stopped @ a restaurant in a remote place the chezk republic and the guy new not a single word of english but I could see that he has wifi on my scanner. He ended up entering the password for me lol.

    Nevertheless dont ever be surprised if 2 people give you 2 opinions on the same thing they may both be true. Usually when I tour and especially when i tour remote places or places where I might face language problems I make sure I get a local sim card as soon as I arrive, Some places have it in every store while some have it in the arrivals section itself. And I do have a travel phone i.e dual sim card phone to make my life easier. To make sure you are not billed tons for roaming data when you are abroad what I usually do is I erase my data settings as soon as I depart my country. So no settings = no oops by mistake I switched the data on. 1MB=$$$$$ & knowing the trash of apps on your apps that keep updating that will be tons of $$$$$.

    If you flip through your air magazine on your flight out to your first destination you will find a traveller sim being advertised too, you can simply call the host and ask for one and pay for it even with your credit card. They have machines on flights. But I never tried that. This traveller simcard would be much better if you are gona hop from one country to another in europe because you dont want to buy a new sim every where you land (thats until the new euro legislation kicks in where any euro country sim card data can be used anywhere and will not be considered as roaming).

    All in all data is very very very important. not to stay connected on facebook obviously but to move around, maps, searches, reservations etc..

    I live in Switzerland and can inform you the Swiss rail pass for
    tourists cannot be used everywhere. It is definitely not usable to the top of the Jungfraujoch and a few private cableways.

    We do have wifi :p Most cities have wifi hotspots all over the place but you need to be signed with a specific provider to have acces to their wifi hotspots. So i see how you would have a hard time finding wifi haha

    Is it realistic to go to Europe for 90 days 3 months the max time I can from Canada 🇨🇦 for around $20,000.00 ? Or should i have more I've been to Europe 2 times already but only for about a week and a half at a time.

    I am backpacking Europe for a little under month. Where do you recommend I go with only a month's time to have the best overall experience? I start in France.

    You are amazing and your blog is great but leave your hair alone. I ended up listening to your blog rather than watching it because it was so irritating. Just trying to give you constructive criticism.

    I would agree with most things you said, minus the 'drink as much as you want' if you're alone, you can't trust everyone to get you home safe. i would say, stay some-what sober but let your hair down.
