I apologize for the lack of updates for a couple of months. But I’ve been so busy (and stressed out) with the preparation of my Euro trip and the trip itself. Just to give you a quick update, I covered 8 countries officially (countries where I spent a night), and 4 side trip countries (where I passed through and did not stay for more than 12 hours) and visited Bangkok again – one of my favorite cities in Asia.
It’s an open book that Europe is my dream destination. And though I was quite confident that I’d be able to visit the continent, I know it wouldn’t be that easy. And it wasn’t.
For people who grew up in rich countries, you probably can’t relate since most of you can enter any country without a problem. That’s not the case for a genuine traveler like me using my third world passport. I’m not bitter, just stating an inconvenient fact. I will give more details about that later.
Meanwhile, here’s a video that Santa’s elves took during my visit in Rovaniemi, Finland. Meeting Santa Claus is one of my childhood dreams as well and it’s just a teaser of the things I have experienced in Europe. Enjoy!
Pardon my voice, I had a bad cold when I was in Lapland, well due to cold. 😛
