An overall summary of my December 2012 travels to Europe, Asia, and Africa
Areas visited: Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East
Countries: The Netherlands, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt, Italy, State of Vatican City, Canada
Cities: Amsterdam (ND), Istanbul (TK), Cairo (EG), Alexandria (EG), Amman (JD), Rome (IT), Vatican City (VC), Calgary (CD), Vancouver (CD)
Kilometres traveled: 25 715km
Kilometres walked: 311km
Highlights: Visiting the State of Vatican City and the Holy See, seeing the pyramids of Giza, Nile River, holiday/vacation (no phone and little email access!), the food, the people
Lowlights: safety of drinking water, seeing discrimination against women, only getting to see Cairo and Alexandria in Egypt
Recommendations to anyone looking to do something similar: stay longer in Italy. If you have any questions about any of the areas, cities, countries, etc I visited, don’t hesitate to contact me via Twitter, email, blog, Facebook, in-person.
What I learned: everything I saw and experienced, I will be the only one ever in the world to experience. We are very much influenced by those around us. However, regardless of socioeconomics, family, education, there can only be one of you who has had all the tiny experiences leading up to today.
