Last time I ventured to Europe, Lucerne (Luzern) in Switzerland was one of my favourite places!
I was so impressed with the incredibly clean appearance of such a busy place, the friendly atmosphere and off course, the magnificent, picturesque landscape of the Swiss Alps and the crystal clear Lake Lucerne which surrounds part of the city.
The highlights of Lucerne were getting to ride an aerial panorama Gondola to the top of the beautiful Mount Pilatus, walking along the cities famous Chapel Bridge and seeing the Lion Monument.
In exactly six weeks I will be on a Top Deck Tour in the Swiss Alps again and I am so incredibly excited! Bring on the magestic landscape and relaxing atmosphere.
38 days. That is how long I have until I fly out of Sydney on an amazing 11 week holiday travelling throughout Europe and the United Kingdom.
My trip is going to be broken up into three stages which include 6 weeks with one of my best friends, 1 week by myself and then 4 weeks with my boyfriend.
The first time I experienced what it was like to travel to a new and unfamiliar country was in 2008 when we went on a family holiday to America for 5 incredible weeks. Since then I have explored my own country, Australia’s beautiful Eastern coastline, travelled to Europe and have also been on a P&O Cruise that went to New Caledonia and Vanuatu. I was 14 when we went on that American trip and since then I have had a very strong presence of Wanderlust – travel is my passion and I have spent the last few years working very hard to ensure that in the next few years to come, I can fulfil some of my dreams and visit even more beautiful countries, crossing things of my ever-growing bucket list!
The last time I was in Europe was in April 2011 with a School group. We visited the beautiful cities and picturesque scenes that Italy, France and Switzerland had to offer. I can still clearly remember the overwhelming feelings of excitement and amazement which I experienced every single day on that two week adventure.
In total, over the 11 weeks of this upcoming holiday, I will be travelling to and exploring 14 gorgeous countries. Those countries are England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Greece, Ireland, Hungary, and Serbia.
The next 38 days cannot come quick enough!
