Epic Euro Trip: 21 Countries in Three Months

These are the notes from my 3 month trip around Europe in 2010. It covers 20+ countries, including Turkey, Egypt, and Israel. We tried to travel on the ground by bus, train, and boat as much as possible. The only flights we took were from Belfast to Amsterdam, Athens to Cairo, round trip, and Athens to Rome.
