introducing…a travel blog series!

6 Jan
So you’re planning your Eurotrip and don’t know where to begin. Sounds familiar. This past summer, my friend, Ada, and I went to Europe (well, just England and France) for our first time for 3 weeks. It was a really fun trip and we look back on it with fond memories.We did quite a bit of planning beforehand as neither of us are really the spontaneous type and I imagine those reading this blog to learn more about our travel experience and advice aren’t the spontaneous type either.We’re both in our early twenties and I’m glad we went now instead of going right after high school. I would have been too naive and inexperienced to navigate around foreign country. I wouldn’t have even been old enough to have a credit card which I can’t imagine travelling without.We both like to write and since coming back from our trip, we’ve thought of many things we wish we had done or (hadn’t done) while we were in Europe. We’ve had a couple of friends ask us for advice for their own Europe trips and since I’ve started this blog, we’ve wanted to write some posts on our travel experiences and suggestions so the posts in this series are a collaborative effort. It’s a lot of information for a single blog post so I’ve split everything up into different ones concerning researching, things to do before you go, booking flights and hotels, city guides, travelling with friends, packing lists, and more!Admittedly,  we aren’t travel experts and have only been to Europe once (specifically France and England) so these blogs won’t be as informative and exhaustive as you might find in a travel book or travel focussed blog. Some of the blogs will be more informative than others and some might be written more like a journal especially the city ones to give you an idea of what we did and what we saw. We’ll also be sharing some of our experience-based suggestions and advice that you might not find in books like how to use the transit system in Paris like a local or a restaurant you should visit if you want to feel like everyone that works there is part of an underground Mafia (or so we imagined!).

Keep posted (or subscribe on the right hand side) for articles in this travel series. I will be posting new blogs every Wednesday and Friday for the next few weeks!

Updates:

Part 2: Planning and Research

Part 3: Travelling with a Friend

Part 4: Come Fly with Me
