A backpacking trip to Europe in the summer of 1998 was my very first foray into long term travel. Back then, we spent the summer traveling around with a Eurail pass and visited France, Spain and Italy, with a stop in Prague since the conductor forgot to stamp our passes on one leg. Yet I’ve always had a love for the romance of Europe, and I can’t wait to explore the continent again.
