Europe or Bust

About this blog

Three months backpacking around Europe.... it's been five years in the planning, but it's finally here! We're flying in and out of Dublin, Ireland. We plan on doing a 10 day round the island tour of Ireland, and then ending up back in Dublin just in time for a crazy St. Patrick's Day. After that, we're flying to Paris for a few days (which, of course, include Disneyland Paris!). Then we begin our 60 day Eurail pass- we don't have any reservations for this part, but we do have a general plan for circling Western Europe. Probable stops include: France (Paris, Blois), Spain (Madrid, Granada, Barcelona), Italy (Cinque Terre, Florence, Siena, Rome, Venice), Slovenia (Bled), Switzerland (Zermatt, Interlaken), Germany (Munich, Black Forest, Romantic Road, Berlin), Denmark (Cophenhagen), Netherlands (Amsterdam), Belgium (Bruges, Ghent).

And then it's off to the U,K. for another 8 days on the Britrail Pass. Probable stops include: England (London obviously) and Scotland (Stirling, Fort William, Edinburgh).

Finally, we're flying back to Dublin for one last night before flying home!

I've been the master planner... I keep asking Chris what he wants to do.... he says as long as he eats he doesn't care. =) Sean may even be joining us for a few weeks at the end of April!

Things I am moooooost looking forward to:

-all the awesome food- paella, tapas, french cuisine (escargot?!), pasta/pizza, etc.

-hiking in Ireland, Spain (Montserrat), Swiss Alps, Cinque Terre, Slovenia (Vintgar Gorge if it's open), the Black Forest, the highlands of Scotland, etc.

-the architecture (whether it's the pastel houses with the bright colored doors in Ireland, the castles on the Romantic Road in Germany, the chalets of the Alps, the chateau's in France or Gaudi's craziness in Barcelona)

-meeting awesome people

-no work (bwhahaha- I will miss you guys, tho).

-no studying (screw school- I'M DOOOOOOONE!)
