I’m finally done with all of my third year university work and I couldn’t be happier that the summer is here.
You may or may not know that this summer myself and my friend Hailey are going to be inter-railing around Europe for a month. Our trip begin in two days. TWO DAYS. I remember when we booked our flights in October and we were counting down the months. I can’t believe we’re about to spend four weeks living out a backpack, staying in youth hostel and visiting eleven different countries. Unbelievably excited, slightly nervous.
I’ve decided to make a promise to myself (and to YOU) that I will blog every day throughout the trip. This seems like an easy thing to do but when I’m in the middle of Amsterdam cruising on canal boats, drinking beer in Germany or sunbathing in the south of France, writing a blog post is probably the least of my worries.
I love reading back on my old blog posts, pictures and YouTube videos. They bring back so many memories and remind me of things I had completely forgotten about otherwise.
So, I’m not making any promises on the quality of the blog posts because it’s purely to document the whole trip and have an archive to look back on and read what we did weeks, months or years later.
I also can’t guarantee that I will have access to WiFi everywhere I go, but I plan on writing the posts daily and uploading them whenever possible.
Regardless, I’m imagining that the posts will be somewhat entertaining due to my expectations from the trip. I’m anticipating some sketchy shit happening, meeting new people, losing something important (hopefully not, but realistically…probably), getting lost but also making the most incredible memories in some beautiful countries.
Even though these posts are mostly a way to document my memories, I hope that they will also be an entertaining read for you and to keep up with my travels.
Starting on Wednesday 4th May 2016, I’m going to try my very, very, VERY best to upload a blog post every single day until I hopefully land home alive and not too broke on May 30th.
