I commented a friend in Germany, that I was thinking about going to Europe and he asked me what I needed. Well, besides the ticket a Visa... So, he sent me all the papers to get it. I went to the consulate and got it really fast, yay! Then I started to work on the tickets and everything. Finally I got a ticket from Lima - Hamburg. I'd go through Amsterdam.
For traveling around Europe, I chose the Eurailpass. I didn't know exactly when I was going to the different cities.
I have friends living in Germany and in Holland, so at the beginning and at the end of my trip, I'd be with old friends. The strangers were potential new friends, lol. Everything was ready, just a small detail was missing: telling my family about my travel plans. When did I do it? The weekend before leaving, ooops! It was a big surprise for my parents. They were speechless: "how?" "why?" "solo?" hahaha.
how: by plane and then by train
why: always wanted to do it
solo: if I waited until somebody would join me, I'd have waited for ever and ever and there is no better time, than right now!
My parents were worried but also excited about me and drove me to the airport. I couldn't believe I just had 1 bag, hahaha.
