It’s hard to believe, but in just ten days time I will be leaving Asia and heading for Europe! I will be arriving in Munich after which the plan is to head south for some skiing in Austria, down to Italy while the rest of Europe is still cold, and then over to Hungary for Easter with my relatives. After that… I don’t know yet. I have until about late May planned for Europe with no definitive plans, and thought some of you might like to offer input as to where I go!
The main factor here, by the way, is the fact that I have technically already been to a lot of Europe. The problem is for most of it I was at an age when you are more interested in the local playgrounds than the rest of the local sights (I recall a boring morning I spent staring at the floor of the Sistine Chapel when I was four years old, for example) so there are some places I’m more willing than others to visit. To narrow things down further…
– I was in Spain when I was sixteen and France when I was twelve. I have no issues going through France again (French people are actually nice to me thanks to my name) but not sure if it should be a focus.
– Scandanavia sounds interesting, but when even Europeans call it expensive it makes me think this might be a destination best saved for when I have actual income later in life.
– I was in Transylvania (Romania) three summers ago, no real interests to return there. Russia might be neat but is surprisingly expensive and getting a visa is really difficult.
With that, my initial potential locations are either Ireland and the UK or Greece and Turkey- conveniently as far apart as possible on the continent. Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions on this? Or are there some places you’ve loved on the continent that I should look into further?
