In May 2017, I will be embarking on a seven-week backpacking adventure with my best friend. This thinly-veiled attempt to avoid the post-graduation blues cannot come soon enough — between my two jobs, 40+ hour work-weeks and endless schoolwork, it sometimes seems like I’ll never make this dream a reality. But for over a year now, we have worked, saved, planned, and worked and saved some more, and we’re more ready to explore than ever.

This page is dedicated to documenting all the preparation that goes into planning an adventure, and will eventually chronicle our adventure itself. Check back here closer to May for more updates!

Our European adventure will span 12 countries and 16 cities. We’ve spent over a year planning and saving for this, and we have the spreadsheets to prove it!
