Best of Europe – We’re Backpacking!


Hi Friends and Family!

I’ve been secretly planning an extended trip slated for June 2006 designed originally for my friends and I. But when cash was not flowing for most, G and I decided to take Europe on our own! His first trip out of the country, ever! I plan to make it an experience to remember. Armed with a 3 week Eurailpass, we are hitting up, what we call, the best of Europe, sampling superb cultures and tasty morsels along the way. Below is a briefing of where we plant to go and a bit about what we’re plan to do while there. Changes and more to come. Enjoy!
