I’ve booked my tickets to Europe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!!!!!! I’m so excited!!!
Now originally, I was going to meet my friends in Berlin late May and explore some of Eastern Europe with them. Since I’m not doing anything right now, I wanted to go earlier! So I looked into Egypt! But alas, with Petra and Jordan right there and so tempting….I don’t have time…..even if I did just Egypt…..the plane tickets when combined with the other stuff….just too expensive…..sigh, I had many nights pouring over info till 4am trying to figure out if I could do it or not…..but not this time……I’m well prepared with info for it when i do go though!
So then I was like hmm….Russia! Wow, the Kremlin looks amazing! oh I can take a train from here to here, and that looks cool, I have enough time for this, its awesome, its fantastic, it……takes 30 days to get a visa……blah…
Hmm…maybe Sweden, Norway, Finland! That would be wicked……but it’d also be cold……maybe…..
Spain! Its warm its fun, Lets go there! Oh and Portugal is right there! Maybe I could go Porto to Lisbon to Madrid to Barcelona, omg that would be soo wicked! And I have enough time to pull that off, lets do it! Oh……wow, tickets there are that much! sigh….
Many many many nights I spent till 2,3,4 am trying to figure out what to do. Actually many friends probably got annoyed with me asking them questions trying to figure out where to go and how indecisive I was. But the world is so awesome with amazing things to see! Can you blame me?
In the end, a plan was formed. And I’m super super excited about it! What is the plan? It is:
Toronto -> London -> Edinburgh -> Dublin -> Berlin -> Prague -> Munich -> Vienna -> Bratislava -> Budapest -> Istanbul -> Toronto!
If any of you have been to these places and have any tips for me on what to see/do/avoid please let me know! InshaAllah I’ll be off in about 8 or so days 🙂
Also, if any of you happen to be in these cities, let me know! It’d be awesome to meet up. Particularly for London, Dublin, and Istanbul as I’m doing those places on my own. Exciting and scary! Mostly exciting! I can’t wait! 😀
