Any extended travel adventure can be a life changing experience – my backpacking excursion through Europe was one of those experiences. On January 11, 2010, I left the world I knew behind to embark upon the proverbial adventure to “find myself.” What I found was far more than just myself. I discovered a world I knew existed, but didn’t truly know until I began exploring it. This endeavor undoubtedly shaped me into the human being I am today (for better or worse.) Below you will find all the details and stories associated with my tour of Europe that do their best (but inevitably fail) to capture this indescribable experience. Cheers!
Each post, update, rant, and review from my trip is chronicled from start to finish (the format of this blog has changed so much that the images and titles of these older posts look a little clunky – for that I apologize to your eyeballs but care little enough to go back and change it all).
If you’re looking for the exact route I traveled, you can follow in my footsteps with this interactive map.
This was a fan favorite during my travels – a massive collection of photos from each of the 29 cities I ventured through.
Don’t forget about my cinematic adventures! Entertain yourself with the sites and sounds of Europe.
