i hate to rain on anyone's parade, but the way the american dollar is going, and the way the EU has made everything so freaking expensive, i really think the days of the 'american backpacking through europe' are pretty much gone. it's extremely expensive, and isn't nearly as easy or care free as traveling the states is... id recommend going to Australia, biking new zealand, or traveling somewhere in south america. that's just my two cents though.

all over the show
hitching europe isnt expensive if you know what youre doing; Germany is like the hitchhiking mecca: short waits, awesome rides, cheap booze, squats in every town and best of all dirty kids are just accepted, theyre all over the place in the cities, just look for a mohawk and youve got a bed for the night.

Holland is pretty good, i saw 3 big squats on the first street i walked down in A'dam, aswel as a couple of coffeeshops, oh and a bin chocked full of plastic wrapped veg :)
Holland even has official hitchhiking spots called a 'liftplaats'

check it(note the sign):

Im planning on going to Europe next year. Im thinking of going to Norway, Germany, Spain, Sweden, etc. Im still trying to figure out how much money should I take there, with the plane tickets so expensive Ill have to get a lot of money to have extra for when I get there.
