Where?

Europe Publish MapThe easy answer to this is ‘Europe’, but then I suppose that doesn’t thin it down very much. So the next best thing is a list of the countries I passed through:

The UK
France (& Monaco)
Italy (& Vatican City)
Slovenia
Austria
Hungary (surprise!)
Slovakia (surprise!)
Germany
Czech Republic
Poland (surprise!)
The Netherlands
Belgium

But then that isn’t really all that precise either. So below is a list of all the places I ended up in at some point, stating whether I just passed through or stayed.

Proper travel is flexible, through necessity, and thus subject to pretty big changes of plan. I had a pretty far-reaching route laid out, much of which was altered or done earlier or later than planned. I didn’t go to some places I’d planned to go to, and in-stead went to others I’d never thought I’d go, I’ve added all of these places to this big bad list so you can see just how far your plans can change.
