You remember earlier when I mentioned that I am a known over-thinker/over-planner? Well, I’m at it again. There are just SO MANY places I want to see and I hardly know where to begin. I posted a plan to see South East Asia/Australia/Fiji for the beginning of my life as a vagabond but now Europe sounds like a good jumping off point for a number of reasons. It feels safe to me. Having lived in Germany for seven years, I know what I’m in for. It seems that Europe would ease me into the nomadic life style and I wouldn’t be throwing culture shock into the mix as well. Of course, there is something to be said for eschewing safe harbors so perhaps traveling a little out of the comfort zone by adding Eastern Europe to the mix? Say…
This plan would keep me in the European Union longer than I planned because I don’t want to be hopping all over the place with airlines, I’d prefer cheaper and more thorough overland travel. With overland travel you would spend more time with and as a local.
So the first year would be Southern and Eastern Europe and the second year would likely be Central, Western and Northern Europe (plus England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales et al).
