So the itinerary is finally finalised and I’m off on this grand adventure at the end of the week. Naturally, I’m bursting with excitement. It’s going to be an amazing trip – seeing some towns, cities and landscapes for the first time, visiting many old friends, travelling with some insane and fun-filled friends, hopefully meeting some fun and interesting people, having some unforgettable once in a lifetime experiences, taking plenty beautiful photographs, tasting local cuisine, road trips, lazy beach days, crazy European summer parties, learning about different cultures, admiring art and architecture, and just having plain good-old fun and soaking it all in.
Here’s a brief run-down of where I’ll be going and what to expect over the next few months from this blog. I’m not sure if I’ll be blogging whilst on the road – I tend to not want to waste time sitting at a computer when I’m travelling – I’d rather be out, doing things, seeing things, experiencing things. So you may have to wait until I get back, sorry, but I promise to update you all as soon as possible.
