After months of preparations, Katie and I are about to begin our European Adventure. Before you think "you are so lucky," think again. We are not lucky; we are hardworking gals who wanted to make our dream of traveling work at the cost of jobs, time, and a whole lot of money. For anyone wanting to plan a long trip, I have one piece of advice: research! We have been planning a trip just under 3 months in length for over 6 months.  

I just graduated from college with my B.A. and am ready for a well deserved break. This is not a vacation (although there will be some lounging!); we are going to learn history and new cultures. One of my majors in college was in history (mainly European and medieval history), so this is an extension on learning. We are excited to meet new friends and tell about our journey. This blog will help our family and friends back home keep up with our journey and make sure we are safe. 

Warning: There will be limited pictures on the blog because of our lack of technology. We will be traveling with reader tablets which don't have USB hook-ups. We will try to show what we can either on blogs or facebook as we go. Also, I will be writing at least once a week, but I am not sure if I will be able to post more frequently or not. 

I hope you enjoy my blog.

Glad to hear you made it safe and sound......even if you are in in a smelly hostel! Hope the rest of your trip is better than the beginning.

Have been following your blog. Sounds like a great adventure! I was very disappointed to hear about Greece. =( It has been on my travel list, but may have to come off after hearing about it.
So glad it's mostly been a great trip. Can't wait to read more!!!

Sorry about the disappointment of Greece, Beth. But don't cross it off just yet. Just go to the islands in the summer time!
