Hi! I am hoping to backpack through Europe next year (if allowed) from mid April to mid July! I plan to visit a couple cities/countries in central Europe, but want to focus on traveling through southern Europe. For example, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, etc. It does not have to be only on the coast line as I love swimming in any bodies of water and appreciate the outdoors anywhere. I love adventure and thrills, but also love going out at night and am a big foodie. I am very into electronic music and would love to possibly attend a festival while backpacking. I am hoping to get suggestions on must see places, cities, hostels, activities, or anything else you can think of! Thank you in advance!

I’ve been to quite a few of these countries, and if you like swimming like you say you do I’m sure you’ll have a great time! A great festival I went to in Europe was Sziget (in Budapest) which had a massive range of music so I’m sure there would be something you enjoyed there! The city of Budapest itself is definitely bucketlist worthy too, it’s got geothermal baths, amazing architecture, a great nightlife - including some ”ruin bars“ which if you’ve never heard of them definitely give them a google as its a great place to spend the evening! Dubrovnik in Croatia is also a great place to visit, from it’s old town (where they filmed some scenes of Game of Thrones) to more contemporary younger vibes with the bars and nightclubs that open later in the day. Would also definitely recommend Sicily in Italy for its scenery (volcanoes), food and ocean. Fingers crossed your trip is possible!
