|Subject: Re: Backpacking in Europe|
Most of my European travels have been city trips, most of my US travel has been backpacking. We are looking at the Tour of Mont Blanc for 2005 though and it looks like a great opportunity to hike in the mountains of Italy, Switzerland and France for about 10-12 days. Based on job obligations, 2 weeks is about tops for any particular vacation.
Sorry I can't be of more help. The internet has a lot of websites of people who have backpacked in Europe as well as around the world, I am sure you have found many!
