If you have questions you couldn't find the answer to on my
site, you may contact me at kaaryn at backpackeurope.com (I'm writing
it out like this to avoid being spammed by computers that collect e-mail
addresses). I do request that
before you e-mail me that you thoroughly look through my site for the answer.
Try using the site index to
find the information you are looking for before contacting me. If the
information I provide still leaves you with questions, I will be happy to try to
answer those questions.
- My site is intended to be a resource for people
planning budget trips to Europe. I began this site to help plan my own
three month trip to Europe after I graduated from college. At that time
there were no websites that answered ALL my questions. I strive to provide
answers to any questions a first time "backpacker" or budget
traveler would have.
Since my trip, I've expanded the site and am constantly adding new
information and updates about traveling in Europe. E-mails I receive from
visitors to my site help make me aware of what I can do to improve the my
site--suggestions are always welcome.
- I do not have printed materials to send anyone (I get
frequent requests for these). The postage, paper, and ink would make me go
- I am not a travel agent, so I do not make bookings for
plane tickets, hotel rooms, tour groups etc. I provide information and links
on my site for you to make your own reservations and/or bookings.
- This website is written and maintained solely by me. I
have no additional staff and I have no plans for additional staff.
about the visitors who come to this site for commercial reasons or any other
Link Exchanges: I get
constant requests for link exchanges. I am happy to exchange links with sites
that actually have something to do with the topic of my website and will
offer valuable information to my visitors.
If you want a link exchange:
- Sites must be related to travel. European travel sites
are more likely to be listed, than non-European travel sites.
- Links/Resources page must be easily accessible from
the front page of your website--like the Travel Links section on my
website is. Having a teeny-tiny link hidden at the bottom of your page, does
not qualify. Having a links/resources page buried in your website does not
qualify. Having a link/resources page that is not connected to any other page
on your website does not qualify.
- Sites' Links/Resources page must have a Google ranking.
My links page is currently PR 5.
- Sites filled with Google Ads or obnoxious amounts of
advertising will not be considered.
- Sites with pop up ads will not be considered.
