As I stated in my first blog, I am heading to Germany to work for three months. I am however, taking this opportunity to eek out every single travel opportunity I can while there. I have zero time or patience to sit in my flat night after night and wait for something exciting to happen to me. As per experience, you have to grab opportunity and life the horns in order to really do what is in one's heart.
I have spoken to a few of my other collegues who were lucky enough to go to Europe on this exchange and they only have very positive things to report. They were able to take advantage of the lower rates to travel inter-Europe and made sure that they visited many countries and cities during their stint. Combined (I spoke to two people so far) they have been to France, Switzerland, Italy, Norway, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, Poland and I think Spain.
I was told to make sure I really plan out my travels as it can be overwhelming and stressful if not done properly. I have a wonderful website for the train service there and I will be employing their services once I start my true travels of Europe.
My plan is to take some vacation time while there. I think one week but I might stretch it to two weeks. Besides from my week vacation, I will do as many weekend excursions as I can squeeze in. I have to do some research on countres I would like to visit but since Switzerland is so close to Germany, I will hit this country up first.
More on the countries I would like to explore to come.
