Travel Planning... the beginning

by - Wednesday, November 07, 2012

So - it was a couple of weeks ago now that I suggested a weekly post on how my travel planning is going for my trip to Eastern Europe in the Spring.

I booked my flights over three months ago... and truth be told, I have everything but one hostel booked and a couple of train trips that I can't book until I'm actually at my departure point because - well, booking trains in Eastern Europe is hard work (trust me, I've watched enough episodes of the Amazing Race to know this).

You can say that I suffer from travel OCD.  I love travelling, I love seeing and visiting new things... but I want to have a plan.  Or at least a list.

Lists are good.

This trip will be one of my first in the last five years that are actually paid for before I leave.  Crazy eh?  I'm kind of liking the whole not-going-into-debt-to-travel thing.  It'll be a refreshing change not to have to pay for this vacation long after my return home.

It's like I'm growing up or something.

So... here is my plan (or at least a map of my plan).  Over the next while I plan on highlighting each of the places I plan on visiting and asking advice from anyone that's ever been to any of these places - I don't want to miss anything!

I'm totally going to need a vacation from my vacation when I get back from this trip.
