I'm having trouble figuring out where to start with this thing. Aside from my backpack stories in the beginning (I believe i made the right choice afterall, huzzah!) its hard to pick out each interesting story.
My first few hours in london were a blur. I found myself at victoria station in morning rush hour, half awake and lost (a common theme on this trip). I ducked out into a cafe and tried to make sense of my bearings. I'm beginning to enjoy that feeling now. Paris, brussels, antwerp, random train stops.. I get out of these trains stations, walk a few blocks and say where the hell am i? Then I spend a few days figuring it out and move onto the next city.
I thought I liked paris best so far but amsterdam as of today has moved up in ranks. That feeling can be attributed to renting a bike and getting lost for the day. Theres definitely a cool vibe here once you get away from the touristy areas and 21 yr old recent graduate pot heads.
I'd have to say my favorite moment in paris was when I was sitting on a bench a few blocks from the arc de triumph when it suddenly started pouring.. Except I wasn't getting wet because of the tree above me. So I just sat there watching everyone deal with the rain (either running and acting aloof to it).
Berlin should be cool. It'll be good to get away from the frites and waffles. Those things will be the death of me.
