So I love me some Travel Channel and especially the Samantha Brown show "Passport to Europe". I long to go back to Europe, it was the best sixteen days of my life and I need to go back.
I've come up with a 5 year plan to go back to Europe and stay in hostels traveling the land! I've already had one friend shorten my 5 year Europe plan to 2 years, which I would gladly do if I had the money. I was lucky enough to go to 7 European countries with The Iowa Ambassadors of Music in 2004. You would not believe the amazing things I got to see and do.
This is a QUICK TABLE OF ADVENTURES from the 83 page handbook we got:
