Have (small) BackPack: Will Travel!
EUROPE for the holidays - ADVICE NEEDED!
I am currently scrambling to plan a December trip (this month!) to Europe that will include the Christmas holiday. (Dec 15 - Dec 30, 2011) The advice of fellow VTers is sorely needed! I am looking to visit Vienna, Prague, Budapest, and if it is not too ambitious, some locations in Germany. All the research I've done so far indicates that this area of Europe is a great way to spend the holiday season, so I am excited. However, personal tips from you are really what I rely on. Do you have special advice for this that you can share? Many Thanks in Advance! Moirholj (Holly)
Ecuador & Galapagos Islands adventure... CHECK!
For the Galapagos Islands, we traveled aboard The Samba , and I cannot say enough good things about the entire trip. When will I ever have time to update my pages?!?! Quito Ecuador was wonderful, and once again I have local friends to thank for a one-of-a-kind experience. A reminder to all the VTers - travel to visit someone who calls a place home and you will have the fullest experience!
I am happy to report that my trip to India in 2009/2010 was a staggering success! What beautiful... shocking... amazing... bewildering... enlightening place in the world. That about sums it up, right? haha.
***Special thanks to VTers lynnehamman and Donna_in_India who gave me great information and advice in the forums as I planned my India adventure!***
And where to next....? I need your help!
For the first time in a long time I do not know what my next destination will be. This is likely due to the fact that what I *REALLY* want to do is quit my job, sell off most possessions, and make traveling my life for a year. Have you done this? What advice can you share?? I look forward to hearing the experiences of any and all VTers!
Backpack Attack ~
For now I leave you with a picture of the contents of my backpack for a 3 week trip abroad.
Nothing makes me feel freer than knowing I have everything I need in the world right there on my back! (Please note that I am always wearing one of those pairs of shoes, and not carrying 3 pair around!)
