Mega European Travel Experience


#1

Hi all,
I have written a blog about every day on the 49 Day Mega European Tour for those of you interested to know what when on. It will also give people on other tours an idea of what to expect in the cities you visit also. So feel free to check it out, I will post all the links below, and you can also download a copy of the Topdeck City Guide map for each city we were given one.
Feel free to ask any questions at the bottom of each post on the specific part of the trip and I will answer them.
Thanks

Anyways, one of the greatest tips I can possibly give you, and don’t be surprised if you already know this, is that QUALITY is always better than QUANTITY. Unless you want to go the “traffic trading route” which I will post another article on later, then I highly suggest you follow the “Quality over Quantity rule”. Now what does that mean? Well simple put, you want as many good addicting

Hey! Loved looking at all your adventures on your blog :slight_smile: Couple of questions- what did you use to sleep in when you went sailing in Greece? I’ll be in Greece mid July and wondering what the weather will be like at night, im presuming it will be pretty hot so I was thinking of taking a tropical sleeping back that’s nice and light!? Do you have some kind of mattress on the boat or just on the ground? Also my other question was how much do you think you need in spending money each day approx?? :slight_smile:
Thanks!

Thanks for reading!
I bought a cheap sleeping bag from Big W for $12 (not sure if you’re from Australia if not it’s an Australian shop) and what I then did is I bought some of those vacuum compression bags and put it in there to save space in my bag. After we finished sailing I then threw it out to save room in my bag as I didn’t need it after that. Although if your tour is going to Mykonos maybe keep it for there as you’ll be sleeping in tents and what is provided isn’t great.

On the boat you have six people, two double beds to share and two others sleep on the couches out in the main area which is where I slept. It wasn’t too bad but at the same time don’t expect luxury. I’m quite tall so I was a bit cramped in, but you don’t really care as you only spent three nights here out of the whole trip.

Spending money is really hard to answer. It all depends on what you plan to do, optional activities, sinking, going out, food and souvenirs. I found that I spent a lot less than I thought I would and then went on a spending spree at the end. Just remember with a tour like this most meals are included so that will save you a lot of money.
