As those of you who know me well may know, I suffer from a seriously debilitating condition commonly known as #fomo, or simply a Fear Of Missing Out. This makes the planning process of any trip an absolute nightmare, as its impossible for me to fit everything I want to do into the time I have. As a result I always leave a city saying I can’t wait to come back. Though I guess that is better than saying I got bored of the city, or that I have no interest in returning.
As I shove the last few things into my bag and get ready to head to Europe tomorrow, my Lonely Planet guides are already full of highlighter and sticky notes and my kidneys healthy and functioning. While Sydney descends into a cold winter, I’m flying into the heat of an Italian and Spanish Summer. I’m prepared to eat my body weight in pasta, and then again in paella.
So apologies in advanced about the spamming of your news feeds with blog posts and pictures. But also, sorry not sorry. I’m in Europe, babaaayy!
