This is single-handedly the longest, most expensive travel that me and Vanessa have ever going to complete. Starting from 5th of December 2019 to 14th of March 2020.
Usually people finish a trip. Then write about How it went, How much did the trip cost, the fun parts, the struggles etc. I took a different approach. More like “writing a diary” approach. So, you will see and feel what we are feeling right now and what we are doing to prepare for this trip. Happy. Stressed. Confused. Excited. Tired.
As you follow us along, You will see the end result. For instance, I myself and my wife don’t even know if our perfect planning and budgeting will work or not. This blog is like a time machine.
Only the time will tell.
Sourov and Vanessa
Everything bellow are subject to change. We did try our very best to plan everything.
That being said, being spontaneous is also a crucial part of a good trip. We will keep you posted and will provide and update during the travel. Also, at the end of the trip we will create a video of “Before and After” to tell you what have changed and why.
Days: For 100 days (5th of December 2019 to 14th March 2020)
12 Countries, 42 Cities, 6000 kilometres by 6 flights, 9645 kilometres by Train, Ferris and Bus.
Paris, The capital of France is our starting point. Geneva, Switzerland is our first stop. Last stop is Porto, about 310km North from the Capital of Portugal Lisbon.
Rough Budget: €5000 to €6000 per person (50€ to 60€ per day per person)
In term of the climate, it is going to be really cold as you can assume. For example, Poland and around North-East can go as low as -15° to -30° Celsius in December. And the warmest Place would be Portugal. Specially, Madeira. Because we will be there in March. And it is an island near african coast.
This is the Fun Part!!
