Five years ago, I jetted off to Europe on a one-way ticket. A few weeks ago, I did the same again. But this trip looks A LOT different. I made a lot of mistakes back then — with transportation, bookings, planning, and spending — and now, I'm a bonafide expert traveler. Here's my stories and advice, and what I'm doing better this time around.
I recently got a message asking for packing advice for a 2-week trip through western Europe. Since my friend's itinerary is not unlike my 4-week trip last August, I figured I could draw on my own experiences to help out a pal in need!
