I'm new to this site and not sure if I'm doing this right...but anyhow...I am a Canadian girl and will be travelling for the first time outside of Canada to Europe this June and July by myself.* I will be starting in london, then going to paris, brussels, amsterdam, berlin, prague, munich, then back to paris and finally london again.* I think I'm going to take a bus from city to city, but I was wondering how hitchhiking is viewed in these cities/countries, and how easy it is to do if it's legal.* I was also wondering if it's easy to find one or two day jobs around Europe so I can make a little cash while travelling.*
Sorry I didn't get to it either! I have a new puppy who's very demanding of my time.
And very distracting when trying to go through these boards.
I think Bug Europe should give Travelpunk a kickback. I point people in their
direction when they ask for information on hitchhiking. They also have info on http://europe.bugride.com/ rideshares. That would be a good resource. I know people on here have hitch hiked in Europe before, and so far, 98% of our members are accounted for.
Being a Canadian, I believe you can work legally in Europe, right? Someone help me on that one.
If you're just looking for a few quick bucks, as at your hostel if they need someone to help out or know of anyplace where you could wash dishes/clean/do reception work for a few days.
I hear that Amsterdam is well known for biking (relatively flat) so you may want to give that a try too.
