Planning my 6-month Euro trip

My travel plans are rarely set in stone. I do like to purchase plane tickets well in advance because they tend to be cheaper, but my itinerary remains flexible even with these flights in my schedule. If I do change my mind, I can always book an additional flight or find another way to get to my destination.

I find this flexibility freeing but nevertheless, I get worried about my future travel plans. It isn’t necessarily a bad worry, but I’ll start dwelling on all the uncertain parts, like where I will be living for the next few months once I leave Scotland at the end of May. At times, I feel like my mind has dozens of tabs open and I can’t relax.

Fortunately, on one anxiety-fueled sleepless night a few months ago, I booked a bunch of flights around Europe. Now I have the first few months tentatively planned out.

This is my schedule so far:

  • May 30 – June 18: Berlin, Germany.
  • June 18 – July 1: Poznań, Poland.
  • July 1 – July 6: Berlin (round 2).
  • July 6 – July 20: Majorca, Spain.
  • July 20 – Aug. 3: Barcelona, Spain.
  • Aug. 3 – Aug. 27: Paris, France.

I’m not sure where I’ll be for September, October, or November, but I have some ideas. I will probably visit Croatia and Ireland during those months.

I’m lucky that I will be staying with my boyfriend and his family while in Poland, but for the rest of my adventures, I will rely on couch surfing. I may need to book a hostel for Majorca but I will wait until the last minute to do so…I’d really like to couch surf instead.

I only couch-surfed once (officially) the first time I visited London last year.

Have you couch-surfed before? How did you like it?

Can’t wait to hear about your adventures. Paris, Berlin and Barcalona are all wonderful places to visit. If you go to Ireland in September we can pop over and see you!
