    Hey there…
    26/M/Sydney – on this tour with my friend Bianca(23/F/Sydney).

    I’ve been travelling through Scandinavia and Eastern Europe for the past two months and just met Bianca in London last week. We’re in Paris right now, heading south through France then to Barcelona and Madrid for a night or two before the tour starts.

    Happy to meet anyone beforehand if you’re travelling alone, just let us know where you’ll be (we’re quite flexible with our plans), otherwise see you around the 28th/29th in Madrid.

    Feel free to email me:

    Natasha— this was the tour that left last year. You might want to start a new post.

    BUT, I will say that my tour last year was one of the highlights of my entire life! We did soooo many things and saw soooo many places. Super super fun. Extremely tiring, but fun.
