1st off HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my readers from the USA!!! I will be celebrating it this year in ROME~
Recently when I have been chatting with people and they ask me “where are you at?” I have been having to say “I am still in Europe”. For some reason I kept thinking wow it’s a bad thing I am still here, but then I got to thinking and asked myself “Why am I still in Europe?” You see in my original plans (my 1st post ever) I was going to be spending 3 months in Europe which is actually perfect, but then when I made my huge change of plans I told myself I would only spend 2 months in Europe and get out. Well now that I am here for some reason I can not get out… As of writing this post I will have been here over 3 months and well I still plan on spending at least one more month or before going on to the Middle East. Since I have been thinking I now know WHY I AM STILL IN EUROPE and well here is why.
Because I have 2 passports and am able to be here more than 90 days.
(I left to Morocco and came in with my other one)
Because it has a thing for hot nude men.
Because I’ve learned that I love to travel slow…
So there you have it… that is why I am still in Europe. I finally left Spain (after a month there) and am now in Italy. I arrived in Venice and making my way down to Rome to meet up with some special people! I know for sure I am going to Turkey, but the thing since I am meeting my girls from Barcelona in Istanbul for New Years then I have all of December to do something and well I’d like to go somewhere cheap. I think I may end up renting an apartment in Athens for a month, but we’ll see what happens!
I honestly didn’t think I would fall in love with Europe. I honestly came here because I wanted to visit some of the big cities I have always dreamed of visiting and than leave. Well I must admit even though Central America is my 1st love, Europe is now my 2nd. I am glad I am here and am glad I am taking my time and traveling slower. I know it’s expensive, but I am managing to stay in budget and know I will have to make some sacrifices else where on my trip because of this, but I am okay with that. I am okay with that because I am enjoying myself and loving it and that is what my trip around the world is all about.
Have you been to Europe did you too fall in love with it? Have you ever stayed in a region of the world longer than you expected? Are my reasons good enough to stay here another month or so? Or maybe you want me to go ahead and move on to another region of the world? Let me know below what you are thinking!!!
