Hello out there! This blog post is coming to ya all the way from Wales where I'm snuggled up by the fire with a huge cup of tea. It's been a long time since we've talked, so sit back, relax and enjoy a little update on my European adventuring.
The past six weeks have been an absolute whirlwind of travel. I've been busy busing and backpacking through Europe. I've been to 10 countries, 15 big cities and more little towns and villages than I can possibly count! I've made a crazy amount of friends, seen the most amazing sights, had some wonderful nights out and have eaten so much food. I blame Italy and its gorgeous pizza and gelato for my current struggle to get my jeans to do up! But, it was definitely worth it. I've had the biggest adventure of my life and I'm exhausted, but it's not over yet. The next two weeks will be full of more excitement as I head off to Cambridge and the big smoke of London. I can't wait!
But before I get too excited, let me tell you where I've been; be prepared for a long list. Here we go- Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Munich, Venice, Rome, Florence and Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Nice, Barcelona, Southend, Liverpool and Chester.
My favourite place? Too hard to choose! Every place I have visited has been perfect in its own way, but I will say this; I'll be back to Berlin for the history, Prague for the beer, Munich for Oktoberfest, Rome for pizza, Tuscany for the rolling hills and lovely people, Cinque Terre for a relaxed week away and Barcelona for everything - architecture, culture, atmosphere, epic nights out, sangria and some of the best shopping in Europe. I've certainly conquered Europe, and there are many stories to tell, but I'll leave them until I return. Hope you can wait that long!
For now I offer you a tiny snapshot of my first day in Europe as a teaser...
Hope you are all doing well back home! Looking forward to seeing you all in MFP, I have travel tips galore!
