I originally sent this out as an email to my newsletter subscribers yesterday. I’m posting this today from my Airbnb in London. Day 1 was a success, but it’s 1 am here and I’m exhausted… desperately need to get some sleep for tomorrow. Updates coming soon.
The day has finally come!
I’m leaving to Europe tonight with my good friend Lonnie.
I can hardly believe this trip is actually happening. There were many reasons (read: excuses) that could have prevented me from following through with it. But, the reason why this trip is happening, is because six months ago I used Warren Buffet’s “2 List” strategy, and going to Europe landed on List A.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you need to read this article: Warren Buffet’s “2 List” Time Management Strategy.
Things don’t just happen by chance. You have to make things happen, and the way you make them happen, is by making them a priority.
Anyway, I’m SO excited and ready for this trip.
Our first stop is London. From London, we’re flying to Spain and from Spain we’re backpacking our way to Budapest. After we land in Spain, we don’t really have much of an itinerary. There are certain places we have in mind that we’d like to see, but we’ll go where the wind blows us.
Now, a couple notes about the blog…
Depending on how things pan out, I may get around to writing a couple short blog posts here and there, but because I want to absorb as much as possible while I’m on this trip, I don’t want to make any promises.
At the very least, I’ll be posting updates, pics, and stories on Twitter and Facebook whenever I get a chance. So, if you want to see what kind of trouble two college students traveling abroad can get into, you should follow me on Twitter or like my Facebook page.
Lonnie and I will also be documenting the entire trip on a GoPro. When we get back, I’ll make a short little video to go along with a blog post reflecting on the entire trip. Hoping I’ll gain some inspiration when I’m out there to write something epic when I get back. Or, at least have some good stories to tell.
“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” — Terry Pratchett
Let the adventures begin.
P.S. Due to limited internet access, I may be slow to reply to emails. I’ll try my best to get to them when I have a chance, but I may not be able to reply until I’m back from the trip. Thanks for understanding!
