This was the furthest, and longest time I've been away from home. I didn't really stick to my route, or my budget. Once I got there I quickly figured out how it all works, and the trip went very smoothly! Here is what I ended up doing
-London, stayed at the Astor Kensington -Brugge, for 2 days -Amsterdam. Stayed at the flying pig on the last night, the other 2 were at bob's hostel -Berlin, met two girls from Hamburg who I ended up becoming great friends with! -Prague for a few days -Munich, for the night -Tubingen to visit a friend I know from the states for 2 nights -Mountain hostel in Gimmelwald for a couple nights! -Took a night train to Hamburg to visit my friends I met in Berlin, also returned to Amsterdam for one night to let them get some work done since I came in the middle of the week -Milano...Got sick and laid in my hostel bed for two days/nights..The only city I did not enjoy! (Because I was sick the whole time) -Levanto, north of the Cinque Terra. Rented a scooter for the trip! Was so fun -Rome
I met so many awesome people during this trip. Every single place I stayed at, I wasn't alone because I always had some new friend from some other place. (Also a few Americans...but they were boring! ) I had such a great time, and of course there were times that I hated. In the end though, I think it's probably the best thing I have ever done for myself. I feel like I'm ahead of everyone else here in the states, because I can see so many differences in how we live compared to other countries. (Good differences, and bad ones) I'd like to say thanks to everyone who helped me plan this trip!!
It's great to hear that you had such a good trip in Europe! It's unfortunate that you had a "minor problem" in Milan, but I suppose those things happen every so often. I imagine like most of us here, you're already planning the next trip?
Sorry about the late reply (I've been quite busy lately).
You have to have a dream so you can get up in the morning.
