As I sit here today, I can’t help but reminisce to this same day last year. A year ago, my (future) fiance and I were at the airport waiting to catch our flight to Europe. It was the real beginning of a trip that had been in the making for months. We had spent the previous 1.5 months planning, analyzing, and sorting out details for our European backpacking trip that was only a figment of our imagination a few months prior to that. I could hardly believe that we were about to really GO for it, to leave home with just a backpack, a little money, and each other. I love to travel…but with two early-20somethings, a lot of unknowns, and an entire continent ahead of us, it was intimidating to say the least.
