Can I tag along with Robyn in your luggage? I have no tips, as I haven't backpacked outside the US. Are you planning on staying in hostels? It really sounds like a great trip~! Be sure to post plenty of pictures when you return :D

hehe, yeah i cant wait. Ill post several pics when i return. ill leave mid august 09 and return at the start of oct., but me and my two buds are planning everything out to perfection as i speak. I have an earlier trip in feb. to new york so thats gonna be pretty neat too. I figured might as well do it now that im not married nor have children. and yeah ill be staying mainly at hostels but at hotels if the city hostels are booked. yup once in a lifetime trip! six weeks of just being FREE!!!

In 1976 my then husband and I did the same thing. Except that we bought a Eurail pass and instead of sleeping in hostels or hotels every night we slept on the train. That obviously was a while ago, I'm not even sure if that would work today. Be sure to tour the castles in Brussels, look at the prostitutes in Amsterdam, eat everywhere...no Switzerland? Did I say eat everywhere? For me it was the trip of a lifetime also. My failing was that we didn't take one picture. So my real advice would be to take lots of pictures. And put you and your buddies in them, not just scenery...oh...and eat everywhere...:)
