ladies need your camping advice

I'm hoping to go inter railing round europe next summer with 2 other people, 2 girls and one boy in total.

We are going to take 2 tents i think but need advice with what kind of thing to take. Obv will need to be light, not too expensive, up and down easily and quickly, possibly 2 two man tents?

sorry for jumbledness and hope someone can make sense of this!

Are you planning to do all your sleeping in the tents?


I'd go for a lightweight one with some kind of porch area to keep your boots etc. There are loads on the market so try to get to a camping show / showroom if you can.

Are you planning to cook as well? I saw a stove set (including pans) in Matalan for £20 last week, then you will need an inflatable sleeping mat and a decent size rucksack.

dh and i did this when we were 20 - the best holiday we ever had.

We did the Hull - Rotterdam crossing as we live in Manchester - then Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland , France, Italy (only the Riviera) Spain - Barcelona really, the back into France - Beziers, then we got the TGV to Paris, few days in Paris the Calais - Dover - London - home!

fantastic holiday - I'd love to do it again.

I know that now you have to choose zones but then it was the whole of Europe - the Berlin Wall had just come down so it was a very different place too.
