With a few months off between graduating college and starting our jobs in Boston and Seattle, my high school friend Joe and I reunite and head off to Europe for a month on a classic Eurotrip. Along the way, we visit over eight locations, many of them classic cities and some of them off the beaten track towns, throughout Europe.
Last stop of Eurotrip: Switzerland. With some cities under my belt, it was time to get back to the mountains and check out the Swiss Alps.
With absolutely no plans or even a place to stay, I flew from England to Paris. Fortunately, things sorted themselves out and I got to check out some awesome landmarks.
After catching up with Lola, I traveled north to Dewsbury, England to catch up with Ellie, 12000 miles away from where we first met in New Zealand.
Finally getting a grasp of the Eurail system, Joseph and I split up. While Joseph went east to visit Austria, Czech Republic, and Hungary, I went west to visit France and my friend Lola.
A stopover in Munich to visit one of Joseph's friends and for a Bavarian beer festival quickly turns into a city-wide shutdown and manhunt.
While we couldn't make it to Rome due to the sheer amount of tourists headed that way, Venice was a beautiful alternative that makes me desparately want to return to Italy.
Despite some unfortunate events, Joseph and I enjoy our time in Amsterdam, exploring the city both by day and by night.
While Joseph and I weren't initially inclined to visit Copenhagen, the Danish capital had a certain draw to it that makes me want to go back.
With graduation and school behind us, my friend Joseph and I scrape together a last-minute trip to Europe.
