Today begins the story of 2 twenty-something sisters, equipped only with a backpack and a purse each, heading off to Europe for 30 days. Our flight leaves at 7:30pm tonight, and I'm trying to keep my nerves as calm as possible.
We have our hostels booked, arrangements made with friends and couchsurfers, and therefore have accommodations in place for all but 2 nights of our journey. Our international SIM card arrived in the mail today (in the nick of time!), and we've got our eurail passes and information on the cities we'll be visiting.
Our trip will take us to Berlin, Prague, Budapest, Rome, Trento (Italy), Verona, Venice, Geneva (Switzerland), Nancy (France), Paris, and Amsterdam. It will be a whirlwind. There will be adventures, probably a good share of mishaps, and definitively a heap of good stories.
I'll keep the blog updated as I can. You can expect more detail and photos after I return from the trip, though.
Here we go!
