There and back again, a Eurotrip by Bilbo Baggins

Hi there folks! Yesterday I got back home from the 4 week long backpacker trip I've done with Erica. At the moment I'm quite busy with some school applications and all the settling down that follows after a long time away from home, so the pictures will have to wait just a few more days.

We've been having such a great time, visited some pretty awesome places and befriended amazing people, so I can't really tell you how much I long to get started with all the pictures! We started out in Barcelona, and from there we continued to France, Monaco, Italy, Austria, Poland, Germany, Holland and (a brief stop) Denmark. We've climbed in mountains, chilled out in the sea, partied in Berlin, felt awkward in the Red light district, had lunch with a donkey, Erica slept on the floor on the train to Rome, had chinese tea time in Austria (???), seen all the luxerous boats on the French riviera and so many, MANY, other things.

Here is a little sneak peak, mostly because I couldn't stop myself from starting of with just a few.

Travel update

Hi there y'all! (yesterday we hung out with a dude from Texas, so I just had to try that expression out)
There's not gonna be pictures just yet. I'll be back home in about 2 weeks, so I'm gonna get started on them then. Instead I'm just gonna reassure you guys that we're well alive, safe and sound and all that. Having somewhat of the time of our lives actually. It's like I almost forget how much I love to travel during the time that passes between the trips. The feeling of being out on the road, meeting new people and experiencing new countries and all that. I love it. Even if we're just sitting on a train station waiting for the next train, I can't get bored. It's all part of the journey.

So far, among other things, we've: meet some really amazimg people, eaten a baguette under the Eiffel tower, slept like logs - every night, had dinner with Innsbruck's seniors club, visited 5 different countries (yes, Monaco does count, no, the Vatican doesn't), peed in the university of Barcelona, meet a couple of brasilians travelling through Europe of scooters (kick bikes), had tea with a chinese guy, and just today we climbed a mountain (it was supposed to be a hike, but it was more like climbing...) and had lunch with a donkey. As I said before, I'm pretty OK with life right now.

Right now we're pretty exhausted from the so called "hike" today. Erica is powernapping next to me, and I'm thinking about doing the same thing. Listen to some Coldplay or Mumford&Sons and just drift away. Yeah, I think I'll do that. Cheers!
(I've written this entire post on my iPod, and it will have to take the blame for any spelling midtakes (just like that one!))
