Off to South Europe

Call it Europa, Continental Europe or whatever, over the next two weeks I’ll be backpacking and road-tripping around Amsterdam, Paris, Zurich, Genoa, St. Tropez, Barcelona and Madrid. With probably a few stops in between.

I’ll be going with some good friends, some new ones and visiting some old ones.

Going to try some post along the way, depending on Wi-Fi availability and energy levels at the end of the day.

Press read more if you’re curious of my backpacking checklist, could be useful to someone else.
