Euro-tripping

One of my biggest dreams is about to come true – I am going to Spain! ๐Ÿ˜€

Beginning over this weekend, I leave on a month-long trip, visiting Hong Kong, UAE, Switzerland, France, Monaco and Spain! While it’s not my first time in Europe, it’s definitely the first in these countries. I’m travelling solo and hope that you guys have useful tips to offer. My schedule for Hong Kong and UAE is pretty much fixed; it’s only with Europe that I need help sorting. Any must-do’s and don’ts are highly appreciated… As are any other recos or people to meet. I have no particular itinerary or places in mind presently, and will make plans upon reaching a destination. Anyone around here on CouchSurfing?!

I’m sure that I’ll probably end up ticking a lot of items off my bucket list and I’m totally kicked about that. If you are in Switzerland, France, Monaco or Spain, I’d love to meet you. I’m going to be in Zurich from the last week of Sep and then follow the order in the previous line till about 3rd week of Oct.

Moving to Goa’s suiting me well. Chilling with monkeys on Arambol beach in north Goa, India.
Erm, the orange bandage is not a fashion thing (as a couple of friends thought); I had hurt my knee.

So yeah, let ย me know – where to go, what to do, what to see, who to meet!

*So super excited!*

    1. Oh, you’re from Abu Dhabi… I didn’t know that!
      Light clothing, eh? Well, thank you for the heads up; I’m going to have to repack some stuff, because parts in Europe are dipping down to 18 degrees already! Only spending a couple of days in Abu Dhabi, so won’t get to go to Dubai ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    A friend and I are planning a trip to the South of France ( around Marseille,Nice and then Grenoble) around the end of December for about two weeks. What is the best mode of public transport (train/bus?) to get around these places and do you have any couchsurfing contacts in these places? ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hey! I’m travelling at the moment. Could you check back in about 4 hours? I’ll post some details here then. (Accessing Internet on phone, that’s why.)

      Hey!

      From what I’ve discovered, buses are a good option for France. Trains are expensive. You can stay in Marseilles for two days. Take a day trip from there by bus to Aix-en-Provence. Then, from Marseilles, you can take an overnight Eurolines bus to Nice. Don’t skip Nice and its gorgeous French Riveria ๐Ÿ™‚ don’t know about Grenoble. From Nice, you can take a day trip by train to Monaco. Stay at Belle Muniere in Nice. It’s located right opp the train station and tram station. Look it up on Trip Advisor.

      Couchsurfing is easy in Provence as it’s a university town. For Nice, look up Yasser and in Provence, look for Dirk Neuman.

      Phew! Have a sexy trip!

      1. wow, thank you so very much for the help ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Sorry to bother you again, but all the websites say that eurolines is only for International travel and not within France. Do these buses stop in Nice and other places on their way out of France?

So, what do you think about it?
