Barcelona was easily one of my favorite stops in this adventure, from the beach to strange cathedrals, hiking in the mountains to a vibrant night life. It was difficult to only stay here for three days, but we went with the flow of things, and had an amazing time!
Rome may be too big to see in only 48 hours, though when you try to squeeze it all in you're bound to learn a few things along the way.
London was our first stop in our self-guided European tour and I couldn't imagine a better place for our journey to begin. Here's what we saw, where we stayed, ate, and what I figured out from all of it.
The whole trip has been like planning a dream, something that we always wanted to do but never believed we could... and now we have made the first step to making it actually happen!
We bought our tickets!
As a first time backpacker I got quite a bit of sticker shock for appropriate backpacks. I never knew they would be so expensive, so when my cousin introduced me to this great discount gear website I was incredible relieved.
