This trip has felt like it has lasted forever, and yet I also can´t believe how fast this trip has gone by. I fly back to the States tomorrow, and I´m both excited to come back and yet I want to stay longer. I will post a big post once I get home, but I just wanted to update you guys once again.
I was supposed to go to Nice after Gimmelwald and then spend 3 nights in Barcelona at the end of my trip. Unfortunately, I put off booking the train too late and all the TGV´s were booked solid. I ended up staying in Gimmelwald for another 3 nights and then taking a night train to Barcelona last night. I spent a total of 10 days in the alps and I don´t regret any of them. I hiked a lot, and I got to spend some time with some awesome people. I have decided that 3 nights in a big city is just not enough. You don´t get enough time to relax, you get burnt out going on trains all the time, and you really do not get to know people enough. I think I will spend about 5 nights in each city for my next trip unless it´s a really small place. Even in smaller cities like Sevilla, I wish I had spent anotehr night or two.
Traveling around Europe has been great. I have met some awesome people and experienced all sorts of things that some people will never see because they won´t make the committment to getting out there and visiting foreign countries. I´m hoping this trip will allow me to help out new members on the boards whenever they have questions about the countries I have visited. I´ll post more tomorrow when I´m home!
