Summer Europe Trip

My Summer Itinerary: Amsterdam - Brussels - Paris - Nice - Rome - Firenze - Rimini - PISA.

Trips to these places were planned by Interrailing which meant that no flights were booked and with the purchase of the magical rail ticket, we were able to take all trains around Europe at a minimum fee. As we initially planned our trip, everything seems challenging. We are almost at the tip of Europe(Stockholm) and the plan was to make our way down to the south of Europe (Italy). The amount of trains routes to plan and change was enough to dampen our mood.

However, once the trip began, we never looked back! Rushing from 1 place to another with our 60 litres backpack was extremely taxing yet adventurous. From the messiness of Amsterdam to the chocolates of Brussels, the romantic Paris, blue beaches of NICE, Rome's extravagant Colosseum, subdued Firenze, fine sparkling sand of Rimini and the leaning Tower of PISA. Every city exposed us to its distinctive yet unique cultures. So much so that we made a MTV from our trip in Europe. As the saying goes 'A picture tells a thousand words and a video explains the unexplainable', I will let the pictures do most of the talking and the video describe our europe story!
