Never been backpacking before and hope to be going around western Europe sometime in 2005 ( when i'll be 18). I hopefully will be travelling through Belgium, Holland, Germany, France, Italy and Austria. I have a few questions for you guys;
What time of the year is best to travel? in terms of price, things to do, meeting other people.
Is it best to travel on my own, with a freind or as a group?
What Licenses/passes/legal documentation will i need?
How possible is it to get jobs while im travelling?
How much money should be set back per day to be on the safe side?
