How To Backpack Europe

Here is my new, updated itinerary. I just wanted to put this on my blog to help potential travelers out.

This is basically an, “if I could do it all again, this is how I would do it” itinerary. I just omitted a few pointless stops that I had made and added a couple cities that I could’ve easily went to. But this is more or less what I did this past summer. And if you don’t know already, I did this trip in 80 days, and for less than $6000

For those who are new to my blog you can easily find everything I’ve written about my travels in Europe by using the drop-down menu that says “Wanderlust Tour: Europe”. I hope everything that I’ve posted can inspire you to travel and help you plan your next big trip! Feel free to ask any questions as well.

1. Istanbul (Turkish Airlines is a fantastic airline that consistently has the lowest fares to Europe. Plus, they give you a free, long-enough-to-leave-the-airport-and-explore-the-city, stopover in Istanbul. It’s like getting a free trip! I highly recommend flying Turkish Airlines when traveling to Europe!)
2. Rome
3. Naples
4. Positano
5. Florence
6. Tavarnelle Val Di Pesa/Barberino
7. Siena
8. Pisa
9. Venice
10. Milan
11. Tirano
12. Chur (Take the Bernina Express from Tirano to Chur. The Bernina Express is an incredibly scenic, UNESCO World Heritage site that you don’t want to miss!)
13. Interlaken
14. Lauterbrunnen and surrounding area (I recommend Murren, Gimmelwald, Wengen, and Männlichen)
15. Bern
16. Lucerne
17. Basel
18. Colmar
19. Strasbourg
20. Zurich
21. Vienna
22. Bratislava
23. Budapest
24. Salzburg
25. Munich
26. Schwangau (Neuschwanstein Castle)
27. Rothenburg ob der Tauber
28. Frankfurt
29. Cologne
30. Prague
31. Oświęcim/Auschwitz
32. Krakow
33. Berlin
34. Copenhagen
35. Malmö
36. Oslo
37. Amsterdam
38. Brussels
39. Paris
40. London
41. Inverness
42. Edinburgh

(Q: Why isn’t Spain included? A: Spain is huge, and far from the rest of Europe. Madrid is 12 hours away from Paris! If I had had a bigger budget and more time, I would’ve gone. But to be honest, Spain is a huge trip in and of itself. If you’re tight on cash and time, just save it for another time!)

the-unpopular-opinions:

One of these women is despised and hated for being awkward.

The other is applauded and worshipped for the exact same reason.

I know other factors come into play.

But something isn’t right there.

ones an extrovert and ones an introvert voila la différence

One had to portray a disaster of a character, one didn’t

And even if she wasn’t an introvert what gives you the right to judge her?

friendly reminder that when oliver wood addressed the gryffindor quidditch team as ‘men’, angelina johnson called him out on his sexist and misogynistic bullshit by reminding him there were women on the team too, and he listened to her without question ✿◕‿◕✿
