From My Europe Journals:

2004-09-14 | London, United Kingdom

So far my trip is going well. When I first got in to London I met a guy named Esani. We exchanged information as we were walking back and forth in customs.

Right after I got out of there I met a guy named chad. I said to him "So, the adventure has begun" and this kicked off a load of excitement and conversation. Chad was from California and i have a random pic of him giving me the hang ten on the tube.

We ended up figuring out how to get to our destinations and went up to the booth. Come to find out they only accepted pounds. I was a total dumbass, but I didn't want to get screwed on my exchange rate in the airport. Oh well. Luckily Kurt gave me 10 euros and it worked out great. We got on the train and had small talk and exchanged information.

Once I got out of the tube my heart just dropped being in the city. Black cabbies cruising by, all the cute accents, the beautiful architecture. History . . . Read More..

A boring last day and also my thoughts

2004-09-30 | Barcelona, Spain On Thursday John and I were on a venture out to find an STA travel store in Barcelona. The reason that John and I set out to find an STA travel was so that I could make major changes in my trip schedule.

Here is what I wrote when all of these things were going through my head one night.

I am thinking of going home early by a few weeks. Reason being... I would think I would be entirely exhausted if I traveled very quickly from city to city. It might of possibly been a mistake buying a 30 day consecutive rail pass. It forces me to try to get the most value out of it. It also cost me 700 bucks. Now that I am in the Mediterranean I kind of realize that I would rather chill than be in a hurry.

Fully utilizing rail pass cruising around Europe would be better if I had someone to interact with while on the boring trains.

I actually am doing quite well right now traveling by myself. I just enjoy relaxing and

This entry was written in the airport before my flight left for London. I thought I might share it along with my final reflections of my trip

So I am here at the airport waiting for my adventure to begin. But unlike in the movies, where actions don't have a direct affect on you, in my life, this trip has affected me and the characters around me.

It is the most emotional thing to see the ones you love sad. They are sad of the unknown. Mostly thinking something bad is going to happen. My mom felt so much pain when she let me go off on my trip. She never tells me of any pain she is in, but I saw it in her eyes when I said my final goodbye. My throat and eyes hold back the emotions because I hate to see my mom sad. Every time I see her sad my body just folds in pain.

I hold things back because for one... I don't want to bust out crying in an airport and also because this trip will probably change my life and I will become a greater man because of it.

Those who I love are . . . Read More..

Interesting Ways of Life

2004-10-10 | Copenhagen, Denmark

The train ride was a little long and we were delayed for 2 hours because a train far up ahead actually hit a car! In the train I met a guy from Germany who was going up to Denmark for a week. I learned of his job and his family. We talked a lot about music and I told him we could do a trade over the mail someday. The first thing I said to him was a German line asking if he spoke English. It was cool.

Another guy I met was from Alaska, but the dude was a punk skater traveling in Europe. He had bad B.O. and I swear the guy masturbated in his bed with four other people in the couchette. I was disgusted. People are really messed up.

Once I arrived in Copenhagen I hadn't yet booked accommodation (as usual). I met a guy renting out his flat as a hostel. He had room for 6 people in his flat. He was real nice and me and some other backpackers surrounded him asking him questions about his "hostel". We ended up

A rainy Musee Day

2004-10-05 | Paris, France

Today I used up my 'all day' museum pass. First I stopped by the train station to pick up a ticket to Belgium. My friend I met online through this travel site wanted to meet up for a day. I got my tickets and then mapped out all of the museums that sounded interesting.

The first museum that I went into was the Musee D'Orsay. This one was pretty nice and I got the idea in my head to take photos of famous paintings WITH ME IN THE PHOTO! I took a photo of Van Gough's self portrait. I saw some of Monet's landscapes. And although they are quite nice with his use of color or whatever... he didn't really appeal to me.

The next museum was the Rodin museum. I didn't even do any research, I just knew it was popular. I really liked Rodin's sculptures, yet they were kind of like classy porn. Some of these museum buffs were probably like "oh.... I like his use of detail" when in fact their old fart asses are getting all hot and
