For the first time in my travel life, I’m heading to Europe.
Europe, wow. That sounds strange. I’ve been to New Zealand and America, the two most faraway from my home country, and of course I traveled through all over Asia, but somehow Europe feels so far away. It must be because I haven’t been there yet. So, the strange feeling would be cleared since this fall. Because for real, I’m going to Europe.
I’ve been working hard to make this trip work: checking schedules, arranging meetings and looking for the not-to-miss attractions. And glad to see that I’m making progress of the process. Slow but steady. Usually I’m not a tight-schedule type of a traveler. You know me; I like to go with the flow, just explore the place as it is, and don’t really worry about where to stay at night. But it’s different: it’s Europe! The continent is big, and I have a limited time. I want to make the best out of this trip.
It has been little more than a year since I changed my career. My previous life, as a mechanical engineer and travel blogger on the side, and my current life, as a full time travel blogger and photographer are quite different. Breakdowns have come, several times. Making my own career without any path, while everyone has their own success secret, as not been easy. Still, I haven’t cracked the code yet. I took my chances and tried. But I still have long way to go. I don’t feel ‘good enough’. Using this opportunity in Europe, I’ll see where I can go with my career. I’m a do-er and achiever. I’m stubborn, and I think I am capable of a lot of things. I just have to make it happen. So, wish me luck.
This trip to Europe is triggered by Eurail.com. They kindly offered me a global ticket a couple years ago, in fact, but I was tied to my little cubic farm. Now finally I can use the offer to explore the European continent. I’ll be traveling three and a half months in Europe and using the Eurail Global Pass for the two months during the time.
In a chorological order…
Including few of my ‘places-to-go’, Greece, Czech, Finland and Iceland, and many of the best destinations in the world, I’m thrilled. Using this opportunity, I’m attending several travel bloggers conference in Europe. Also several different companies and tourism boards are on board on my very first Europe trip. I’m very excited to working with them. I’ll be announcing my partners through my next newsletter. Also I’m going to Europe with my dearest travel partner, Stephen. I guess I have to tell all of you more about him!
The journey goes on. You can get all the stories from Europe delivered to your inbox, every month! By signing up for my monthly newsletter! I’ll do my best to deliver the finest and the weirdest travel stories on the road.
If you are around, please drop me a line. I already set up few chances to meet my favourite European bloggers on the way. Thrilled! Do you remember my old post, Juno-go-round Tweetup RTW? Slowly, I’m making it real. Really.
