Clare's Excellent Adventures Cont.

So in just 5 days I am going to resume my travels (thank bloody Christ!) and I've decided to put together a little itinerary, similar to the South American one for you to all follow. It also helps me remember exactly where I'm going as I'm an unorganised git.

The trip begins in Delft, a town 45 minutes out of Amsterdam where my mate Jeff is currently living with his Dutch girlfriend, Anna. Next weekend is dedicated to the Lowlands festival, where we will watch some fantastic bands. Then to Berlin, Prague, Vienna, then Tolmezzo where we will visit Schmecky's family again and attempt to translate their Italian. From here we'll do a bit of Austria, Saltzburg, Innsbruk, then off to Slovenia where Schmecky has some walking tours through a national forest organised. 

We then go to Croatia, where we will board a sailing tour of the Dalmatia Coast (awesome!) for a week, then fly to Barcelona on 1st October. Here, Schmecky and I will trek around up to San Sabastian (I hear is one of the best beaches in the world!) where we'll meet Braddles. Then Schmecky flies home on 14th October and I continue to A Cornuna where I'm planning on accepting a job at a horseriding place where they need help taking care of horses used for tourism and comptition (no kids! Yay!)

So there is the next and last leg of my journey! Another 4 months of excitement and then I'm back hoe just in time for my birthday and a good ol Aussie summer! 

Globetrotting! Gotta love it - Mum, we'll do it together in a couple of years

I cannot believe you're not going to go into Bosnia or Macedonia! Both are a short bus ride from Croatia and SOOOOOOOO much cheaper! But, it sounds like a friggin awesome itinerary none the less, would trade places with you in a flash. Miss ya darling.

I just read your post Clare, about 10 days after you wrote, so I am assuming now you are well into your country hopping in Europe. It is absolutely brilliant you have taken this time to do the travels around the world.
Wherever you are, wishing you all the fun and safe traveling!
