In early 2013, my wife and I resigned from our jobs and bought one way tickets to Lisbon, Portugal.
We decided that we were going to build and run our own business full time and start a new life on this adventure.
From Lisbon we moved on to 45 locations over 218 days.
Euro Scenes will show how that adventure unfolded and will provide a real life travel guide to Europe. The site will highlight with exceptional photos what exactly we got up to over 8 months traveling in Europe and provide ideas of what you may do too. Many itineraries will be highlighted that one may take on for a week here or a couple weeks there. Or you can go the full distance and perhaps further.
It took me over a year to start looking at the hundreds of thousands of photos we took while we were gone on the European adventure. The task has now begun and I would like to see a solid website come together by the end of 2015.
We were fortunate to have the time every where we landed to decide what was worth checking out (given time and money) and what was not. We definitely did not see everything we could have in each of the 45+ locations we visited, but we did have a good time and saw more than enough of the typical tourist highlights. Part of our desire was to just hang out and soak up the daily life of the locals. So we kind of burned half our time (at least) eating good food, drinking amazing wine and beer, and watching what was going on around us. We also worked at least 4 hours a day while traveling.
I’ve posted our full route that kept us busy for 218 days. You could slice off any piece of it for your vacation time(s).
Hope you enjoy the photos and the tips as I record them!
