So after saying I need to stop planning…here’s the plan (rolls eyes and sighs, I know, right?)
We started with a map and a piece of paper, then a bit of research and flicking through some books. We then looked at what was next to what and came up with a draft route. It was set, right?
It’s only recently, through looking at WorkAways, we realised that (I’m sure they would be very different), there might not be as much contrast as we first desired. With 3 places booked, we went back to the drawing board. Back to the maps and this time, relying on where we knew (off the top of our heads) that we wanted to go. We changed the route quite drastically, fitting around the 3 WorkAways we had already booked. Then, we changed it again. And again. Then one of our WorkAways cancelled on us, so we changed it AGAIN.
Here’s our new proposition:
Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam) – Germany (Hamburg, Berlin) – Portugal (Porto, Lisbon) – Spain (Madrid, Barcelona) – Italy (Venice) – Switzerland (Bern, Zurich) – Slovenia (Ljubljana, Bovec) – Austria (Vienna) – Czech Republic (Prague) – Poland (Krakow) – Sweden (Stockholm)
We’ll see how long it sticks!
