Finally, from the foggy depths of my mind, a loose plan for my Europe and North Africa adventure has come into being. Of course, someone once said, the best way to blow your travel plans is to make them. I much prefer to keep things loose and go where the wind blows, like I did in Southeast Asia, but on this trip I will be staying mostly with friends. I figured it would be slightly courteous to let them know when I would be knocking on their door with red eyes and begging a couch to slobber on.
So, here we go:
Kentucky -> Dublin, Ireland. in Ireland I will be staying in Dublin, Waterford, Cork, and Tralee for 10 days.
Ireland -> London (2 night stopover) -> Stockholm, Sweden. I’ll spend a week playing with the former-vikings there.
Sweden -> Frankfurt, Germany. I will train down to Konstanz on the lake, meet up with a friend, then we are going to backpack around Germany for a week or maybe more?
Germany -> Brussles, Belgium -> Hertogenbosch, Netherlands. I’ll be just outside Amsterdam for about a week.
Netherlands -> Morocco -> Egypt. I plan to spend the month of October, maybe more, split between Morocco and Egypt. They are both somewhat cheap and warm. Between Chicago and Alaska, I’ve been cold enough this year. Egypt has some of the best scuba diving in the world, so that will probably keep me occupied for a couple weeks at least. Woohoo – life is goooooood!
