Sooooo since y’all asked (only like 4 ppl lmao) and I def am never gonna blog, ima just put some of our Europe trip deets here. Hope this helps whomever! .
🛫3 modes of transportation
Sounds crazy and unachievable but on the contrary it is very much achievable and quite fun! .
I knew before we left for Europe that I wanted to see as much as we could in one trip. Many ppl advised us against this, with logistics being the main issue they felt we’d run into, but deep down inside I had faith in Omar and myself (mainly Omar lol) to be able to do it whilst still seeing the history and main attractions in each place. Sooooo here’s some pointers below for things to consider to make it a reality:
1.) Plan, but not every last detail. Keep it flexible. (@fz206
can attest to this as we had only 50% planned the day before our flight 😬🤷🏼♀️) If you wanna see more, do more... dont plan and book every last detail, so you have flexibility to change things up last minute! Vienna, Austria was a last minute stop we were able to add on and Prague we liked more so added an extra day there.
2.) DO figure out your modes of transportation. Most Western European countries being part of the EU makes crossing International borders easier than going to Vancouver! We used @easyjet
for domestic flights and got a 7 day @eurail
pass! We also rented a rental car from Milan to have more autonomy to explore the cities along the Mediterranean, south of France and Monaco.
3.) Be ready for a learning curve, have patience & have a good attitude! Sounds dumb lol but forrrreal, its a whole new place, laws, rules, systems are all different and instant gratification is really an American thing lol. Though things may be different and slower (aka learning new systems in 6 different languages), getting easily frustrated will only make it harder on yourself. Take it all in as a cool new cultural experience and 🙂. .
4.) Lastly and MOST importantly, if you are going to travel with someone for a trip like this, go with someone you know is considerate, patient, and on the same page as you. Super 🔑!!! -continued in comments
