Road/Backpack Europtrip’08.

First of all before I start my real story I want to mention that I only am writing this blog for Lain and a little bit for myself as a memory. Lain asked me to take alot of pictures.. I have took alot of pictures of the views we had.. the pictures where I am on are mostly weird and crappy.. The ones I like.. are pictures taken of my back, I looked horrible and exhausted and honestly I mostly even didn’t tried to look well enough for pictures. The pictures I am posting here are the ones I think that they are okay, that they can go through.. the ones I am not posting are just odd pictures of me doing things.. And also I am not posting pictures of the two guys that went with me because that’s pretty personal for them. I will try not to post a long blog.

EuroTrip 2008.

The past month I have spent in 20 awesome countries in Europe, we didn’t stayed in them all because there was just not enough time to explore them all and meet people in every country. Our plans have changed alot, the first pland was flying out to vencia in Italy and just walking around with a hudge backpack there..At the last moment we cancelled our flight and decided to go by car.. it would cost a little bit more money but then we knew for sure that we would get back at the right time. Some countries I liked better than others and in some it was just impossible to make clear to the people there what you wanted.. for the simple reason of that they don’t speak english.. or just a little bit.. In those ones.. we had to talk with our hand and feet and legs and arms and just really weird things.. I am a girl who was confused about the most of the things in life and I tried to find myself in every possible way.. I used to live life with Peter Pan and The Easter Bunny in my head and trying to know alot of knowledge and wisdom about the things I probably would never need in life.. And Kind of I am still like that.. but my view on life and people and alot of different things has changed alot and I am not that confused anymore about certain questions. Although this trip was very exhausting.. and we didn’t slept much, we basically followed the rainclouds and each time it was really hard to find a place to stay because we didn’t went to big cities.. that was a choice we made.. there’s always time to visit the big cities but you never get to see how people REALLY live and how life goes in little places..
So anyway, if we were lucky we slept in huts and if we were really lucky we could sleep in houses.. there were no hotels and if by chance we did found one.. we still didn’t want to spend the night there.. then we just took the risk of sleeping outside or in the car if we didn’t left it somewhere to go on walking. As to me I speak Dutch, English, German, Croatian, Some Japanese, Some Spanish and Some French, Chris speaks them all very well just leaving out Croatian and Japanese and Benjamin his English and German is great.. So basically we managed it. Food.. that depended on if we could find any stores.. and when we found them.. we could spent just each €5,- on food since we were by car we had to buy gass aswell.. lucky it was a diesel car so we spent like €150,- on 1600KM.. Also we had to buy vignettes in some countries because only with a vignette you can go through that country and some of those were also pretty expensive. So.. that’s it.. kind of.. a blog without personal details. I’ll tell you about it more Lian.. I just feel like.. I have wrote already way too much =P.
And if I could do it again I would definaitly go because this time I had my doubts but I did go and I was with the people that matter and the people I love alot.

Some pictures I like & think they’re well enough to post:

Hut where we stayed because it rained alot.. it’s the back of it actually I didn’t like the front that much.

Those stairs were pretty unstable.

Really cute house where we spent two nights.
