It's my career
My friend and I decided in December, we chose Spain and Portugal since we felt it deserved a journey all its own.
The language barrier
Everyone is supportive and excited for my first trip to Europe; I don't know their opinions.
5 shirts, 1 pants, 1 shorts, 5 underwear, 5 socks, poncho, sweater, bathing suit, small towel, toiletries, camera and lots of film, 3 books, walkman, first aid kit
I don't expect my life or my person to change, I only hope I gain worldliness and travel experience. I hope to learn that if I wanted to at some point in my life, I can spontaneously move to another country and survive.
It seems efficient, and a great opportunity to meet other travelers.
All the planning is in my hands, I absolutely wouldn't give that freedom up, to me that's half the thrill.
I don't know oh: "Is there really urine pooled on the floor?"
The further away I get from my home I truly feel like I'm living for adventure, my energy rises and I get LOUDER!
Plan early, reserve places to stay so you don't need to when arriving. Seek out the cities of most interest. But don't plan every second take advice from the locals.
