It's my career
England, Amsterdam, Paris, Pomplona, Berlin, Switzerland, Italy, Greece. This is just a diagram of the cities I want to see. I am hoping to get off the beaten path to enjoy some local festivities.
I am interested in broadening my horizons. I want to experience life in every possible way. That is why I have decided to just go where my Nikes take me.
My biggest fear would be losing my camera. A camera stops time and captures so many memories in just one shot. Losing the memories of this trip is what I fear most. Everything else that happens, happens for a reason.
My family still does not realize that I am going backpacking through Europe. My co-workers are excited and keep updating me on places I need to visit. My company has also approved four weeks of paid vacation and four weeks of leave-of-absence. Yahoo!
2 t-shirts, 2 undershirts, 4 boxers, 4 socks, 1 hat, glasses, journal, iPod, Camera, and most important... Travel-size Dove soap!
As of now I consider myself to be an introvert. I am very shy when it comes to starting conversations with people I have never met. I would like to get over that. I am looking forward to meeting the different people and try to start conversations and break out of my shell.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, make it memorable.
So many opportunities to meet new people, have great conversations, and learn how other people think. You can learn a lot by conversing with people you don't know.
A package tour is just that. You do not gain unique memories or opportunities. You are stuck on a basic trip going to the basic tourist traps.
I would have to say that you need to be careful of the people that approach you. They see a person out of their normal element who can be easily fooled.
I travel for my company and just by traveling through the U.S. I have gained so many memories and realized so many things about people's way of life.
Remember, everything happens for a reason. Think about it. You miss a train, you have two hours to spare. You go to a cafe for a drink and you just might experience a memory you will never forget.
