Part 2: My travel schedule
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a planner. I am trying to be more open to being spontaneous and spur-of-the-moment and the like, but as this is my first big trip outside of Europe I wanted to take some of the nerves and pressure out by outlining what I’m doing in advance. I partly achieved this by signing up for two tours, but also researching where I wanted to be when travelling alone in between. Of course, the best laid plans can change, but nevertheless I am going out there with a pretty good idea of what each segment will look like. So that’s how I’m able to provide this travel schedule for anyone who is interested in seeing what I’m hoping to do!

It’s a lot in 10 weeks, but needless to say I am so excited and I can’t wait to see what my trip brings me, or which new places I’ll discover on the way! If anyone has any comments, recommendations, or wants to tell me about any places I shouldn’t miss, I’ll be all ears!
