Come May, we’ll be packing our bags and getting on a big jet plane to several amazing places!
I’m excited/nervous/already ready to go.
I haven’t ever lived out of my backpack for a whole 3+ weeks, and Em has never been out of North America. This will be epic and exciting and I’m sure at some points stressful and tiring. We’re returning to the Dutch homeland at last!
We’re on a pretty strict budget and one thing I am sort of worried about is getting around in Iceland. I know it’s a very expensive place, so I’m really unsure how to go about getting out of Reykjavik and getting to the other parts of the country! I’m sure we’ll manage one way or another.
I’m really ready to eat new foods, meet new people, and experience the oddness that comes with sleeping in rooms with strangers, staying out late dancing, showering in shared bathrooms, and digging around ones pack looking for that one thing that no doubt is now at the bottom of the pack avoiding your searching fingertips.
If anybody has any recommendations/things to do/see/eat in Reykjavik, Amsterdam, Bruges, or Brussels leave me a comment! We’re stoked and we’ll have a great time no matter what happens but I love hearing from other world travelers.
It’s absolutely nuts to me that it will have been 4 years since I left ‘Murica for foreign soil. I will never ever let it be that long ever again as long as I live. For me, traveling is a way to stay sane. After you travel there is a switch turned on somewhere in your soul that cannot ever be turned off, and if you don’t travel you have to distract yourself like a fiend because otherwise something in you goes a little crazy. In the mean time I’ve gone to California, Texas, New York, Cape Cod, Washington, and lots of other beautiful places, but something about long plane rides and getting a stamp in my passport hums the right tune.
