I’m about to complete my first topdeck tour in about a week. This is the 49 day camping tour around all of Europe so I have plenty of useful bits of information. I’m also doing the 22 day hostel tour through scandanavia in another month, so as this thread progresses I should be able to answer all of your questions in one spot.
I’m doing this because information is scattered and nobody really made a “no bullshit, this is how it really works” thread before my first trip.
Notes: I’m American so I can’t answer every Aussie/kiwi specific question but I could easily ask one of my new friends from there for help: just expect some more time on those answers.
Other than that, feel free to toss out questions and I will do my best to answer them within 48 hours (as I’m still on the road).
