I didnt get to the Netherlands for Queens Day, but I doubt I will have less fun on my trip there, Im leaving on the 31st May! This is definitley a place I can see myself coming back to. This trip I will be heading to Utrecht and the aptly-named Green Heart. I am only going for 4 days and I doubt Ill get a heap of time in Amsterdam so Im thinking of this as Netherlands Trip 1! I would like to check out Rotterdam and Den Haag and maybe even make my way up into Friesland.
August is my big holiday, so I will be using that month to do some genuine backpacking in Eastern and Southern Europe. My ony set destination so far is Budapest, for Sziget festival! After 6 days of getting seriously gross camping, drinking and generally haivng a ball, I have an inkling I might splash out for a hostel room in order to do some sanitising. Then Im heading south, through norhtern Italy and across to Croatia and down the coast to Greece and Turkey. Well, thats the dream isnt it!
My other dream Euro-destinations include:
Denmark (yeah RIGHT, when I win the
Lithuania, Estonia, and the Czech Republic,
Skiing, or at least apreciating, the Alps
