    My trip was over...I have fast found myself at Shannon airport drinking my last pint of Guinness. Then I realised that not for once I did feel alone.

From that I decided that I could no longer stay in Townsville and asked my aunt if they still needed someone to look after the kids.

    ... on Rick Steves Europe Through the Back Door - because this was the only group I found without the hefty single supplement cost - I signed up for a 3 week trip to Italy - by myself. My first challenge - traveling solo. I arrived in Milano and tried to take the bus from the airport to downtown.
