Seeing that I have been home from my 10 country adventure for about a month now, I felt it was time to upload my compilation video. For no reason in particular, I have taken my time and was adding little bits and pieces of clips every day. I was meticulous when collecting these memories and realized that there are many people and many memories that were missed. At those times, I lived them very much in the moment. For those beautiful individuals who I have missed in some shots, know that I love you and you'll see your face in the slideshow before.
I have to say, Contiki was one of the best experiences of my life. If you ever get the chance to, I highly recommend doing one of these trips in your lifetime. Tours allow you to sample places you dream of visiting. If your personal goals are to travel and see the world, Contiki can provide you with an itinerary to see all that you want to (or most of it) during your adventure. I would definitely recommend these trips to anyone looking to travel and to make memories.
If you are looking for 5 star accommodations and relaxation, I believe they have other packages that could suit these specific needs, however, the 'Euro Whirl" trip was considered high energy, meaning we were go go go and the accommodations were just that. Merely, a place to sleep. I didn't mind, even the camp sites were fun enough even if you didn't have A/C. Our family and I made the best of it.
All and all, this trip has rounded my personal goals and has allowed me to find myself again. I am deeply devoted to myself and ensuring I follow suit with all I want to do in this world. I am so thankful for the people I have met who I can now call my friends. Thank you all for these amazing memories. One day I will look back and smile for all the fun that we shared. I don't think a Contiki family has ever meshed so well as we did. Thank you for making my birthday indescribable. Thank you all for serenading me multiple times and for following me along in my journey. Who else can say they spent their 21st birthday under the twinkling tower while a group of 39 friends sang 'happy birthday' right at midnight. I shed a tear or two. Although distance is a factor for our friendships, I want you all to know I am always a message away.
I loved my memories and the friends I have met. I hope you all enjoy this video. For all my friends and family back home, you will be able to see the places I have visited. Down below you will see a slideshow of pictures taken and can meet some amazing individuals. You will also be able to find the trip details and the music I have used within my video.
