Europe on A Budget

To start off the Budget Backpacker blog, I’m going to take you on my first big trip backpacking through Western Europe.

They were too busy waiting in line at the Vatican or partying all day and night in Mykonos to realize that sure the tourist sites are fun, educational, awe-inspiring at times, but they tend to be over crowded, over-exhausted, and over-priced. Sometimes the best parts of a town, city, or country are behind curtain number 2.
