It’s well known amongst my friends and family how much of a desire I have to travel to Europe with Mr M and see this big awe inspiring world we live in. I set the goal years ago whilst starting out in my degree and always knew (not hoped) that I would get there eventually. This past Saturday night Mr M & I spent it at home, with a bottle of red and a big ole’ map of Europe plotting our great big adventure for 2012 – & I could not be more excited.
The adventure begins in August 2012 and will see us off to Europe (& the UK) for a total of 4 months. I have questions at the end of the post for those of you who have travelled before so I wanted to share so far the list of countries we’ve compiled to explore.
We don’t know everything about the trip yet or exactly where we want to visit in each country but what we do know so far is this.
We want to take in as many sights as we want, not that we can. We want to soak in all of countries we’re visitings beautiful culture. We want to taste and drink things we’ve never tried before. We want to really see and explore all the places we visit, not rush through cities for the sake of saying we’ve been to another new country. We want to kiss under the Eiffel tower. We want to find a little cafe in the heart of an old Italian city and eat traditional pizza and pasta and drink authentic Italian wine. We want to swim in oceans we’ve been dreaming about.
We want to be free souls roaming our big beautiful planet. And that’s exactly what we will be doing.
What I want to know though is what are some of your favourite places you’ve travelled? What are some of your best holiday memories and if you have any travel tips for Mr M & I as we busily plan our own adventure please let me know! Have I left a country off that you have visited and highly recommend? I want to hear it all!
