European winter november 2014

10 Jun 2014 rhiannonhanson asked


Was thinking to do a Winter tour, not sure which one but any ideas on the best options!
Also should I go on my own even if I'm 19? Will I meet people?
Bit nervous but seems like an experience. Want to go for around 2-3 weeks :)

Would love some answers :)
Thanks guys!

    Hey! :) I just did the European trail over xmas and new year last year solo and it was the best thing I’ve ever done..You will meet so many people so don’t stress! We had 18yo girls travelling solo on our tour and they were fine! :) I’m doing the winter wanderer this winter though… If you have any other q’s let me know! :))

    Hey Rhiannon! I’m also going solo and I’m only 18! Will be closer to 19 when I leave though. I was considering winter wanderer 24 days OR European explorer plus Mykonos Island!? That ones 33 days! I wouldn’t mind doing a big Europe one then like a croation Island one after it?
