I'm considering embarking on a multi-month tour across Europe over summer-autumn this year and was wondering if I could tap into the WS community's experience. I'd like to hear what people's experiences are with unplanned encounters en route. For example, how often would you come across other cycle tourists (firstly who you just chat with then part ways, and secondly who you then join up with)? What is the longest you've gone without having any meaningful interaction with anyone? Are there particular regions which have a much greater density of cyclists on a similar plan? My biggest fear about this trip is the potential isolation so it would help to get a sense of what life is like on the road in this regard.
