yes you read it right. i will be going to europe to fulfill my lifelong dream! i'm beyond excited. i have only purchased the tickets so far, i hope there will be no trouble in obtaining the schengen visa. i will be departing on april 2012 so i got some time to prepare. i will be there for about 2 and half months so i'm kinda risking my job here. if i don't get the permission then i guess i'll just have to resign. i don't mind though, that's the risk i'm willing to take. crazy i know, but i don't get many chances to be crazy so might as well take this one.
i still haven't really decided which places i'd like visit. i'm having trouble choosing because i want to visit them all!
my budget is not unlimited, in fact it's actually quite limited, which is why i'd like to ask quite a favor to my fellow deviant friends here for a place to stay during my couple days visit. i have some friends who have kindly offered me a place to stay but chances are i'm gonna need more as i'll be going here and there. aside from the fact that i could save a lot of budget with your generosity i really like the idea making new friends and get to know them better during my travel. i don't have much to offer though, just prints from my gallery and souvenirs from indonesia perhaps. oh, i'll help with the dishes too. haha. i was thinking couchsurfing at first but then i decided to try here first as i have made friends and met lots of wonderful people here.
i'll try to update again later with my itinerary to give a better idea of where i'll be needing a place to stay. if you have a suggestion of which place to visit feel free to drop a note. i definitely could use some guidance. thanks before.
