It’s funny to think but I’ve actually been on the road for about 25 days now. That means I’m hitting the turning point in my trip and will begin winding my way back towards the UK and towards a job (I hope). It certainly doesn’t seem like that long, but true enough my current adventure has reached the point of where I need to think about working again.
Lucky for me Jane of www.runawayjane.com recently compiled a Top 3 Cities to Base Your Working Holiday in the UK post which only further pushed my desire to not work around London for the entire 2 years I live in the UK. It has baffled me that so many people who apply for the UK Youth Mobility Visa stop in London and never see the rest of the country. Especially for Australians who have flown half way around the world, why see just one city?
Another post I read a little while back of Jane’s was on the Trans-Siberian Rainway. I’ve loved the rail travel that I’ve taken across Europe so far. You get to see so much more, move about freely and for backpackers with heavy packs the train delivers you right to the center of town.
While my European train travel is great I can’t help but be very jealous that she may be taking the journey from Europe to Asia entirely via train. I’d love to hear from anybody that has taken that journey and what they thought of it.
