One more paycheck and I'm gone
I'll probably head up the Rhine to Amsterdam and then rail to France, Italy, Greece, Austria, Czech Republic and back into Germany.
I've been in Europe for a few years now and done a few small trips, but this is the one I've wanted to take since I got here. I'm headed back to the States in a few months and it's finally time.
That it will awaken my inner beatnik spirit thus become a way of life and I'll never retu wait, that's not scary.
Yes, everyone is quite supportive and some quite envious.
I'm going light... but most indispensable? My journal.
I don't expect any great epiphany. Life itself is a sufficient learning experience. I just plan on having fun and enjoying something new. Anything more is just a bonus.
I don't need anymore money... but an extra 3 or 4 months would be cool.
I don't. I think they should travel however they darned well please. If I had more time, I'd probably hitch.
Again, it's all in what you like and what you want to do. I don't get into the whole traveler-tourist debate. I'll do touristy things, I'm sure. I'll do what I want to do and see what I want to see (or at least half of it) without a single thought as to if someone else thinks I should see it or not.
That it's simple.
That it's difficult.
It simply is.
Half of it depends on the day and the other half depends on what you make of it.
I have an inner desire to experience everything at least once.
GO! I've spent a lot of time planning different routes in my mind but to be honest, my actual path may look nothing like what I've considered. But I'm having a damn good time playing around with different routes. But I'm not locked into anything, thus I don't expect I'll be the slightest bit upset when I find myself smack dab in the middle of some place I wasn't even aware existed.
