It has been my dream to backpack Europe, but with the recent downturn of my economic situation I have quickly losing my opportunity to go.
The trip will begin in Amsterdam where I will be departing rather quickly to the Normandy beaches where my grandfather fought then on top Paris. I am then planning on heading southeast to Madrid to spend a few days there and over to Barcelona. I plan on timing my trip right so that i can run with the bulls.
Next I'll look to the Med. Monaco has always been my dream vacation so to be able to visit would send shivers up my spine. Moving on I'll head to Rome spending a good amount of time there. I am hoping to get a shot of myself at the tip of Italy, then back north to San Marino.
As long as tensions calm down in the coming months I have always wanted to see the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. Seeing that, I would head to Prague then to Germany where I plan to stay for a while finding work and finding my parents' former home, where my sister was born and raised. Once I have made my peace with Earope I would then take a trip to Amsterdam flying back the the U.S. thus ending the trip of a lifetime.
I hope all of you out there can experience this sort of trip at least once in your lifetime even if it means spending everything you have like it is for me, I know its worth it.
With love and respect,
