Hi Everyone! Hope you had a good Christmas. I spent mine with my parents, which was nice.
I've been busy planning this trip that you've helped me with and I think I'm making good progress. Largely starting to arrange places to stay and developing a list of "must see" things for myself.
Using the hostels and airB&B I've been able to get decent looking and affordable places for me. I still need to find something for London and Paris, but the rest of the trip is mostly worked out. Might need to go to couchsurfing in those capitals, though I do like a little more privacy than this. I'm still pretty sure with a little more work I can find a simple place to stay in these two great cities.
Garry, I have a question for you as you are a local. Is it worth making the day trip to Snowdonia for a hike (assuming the weather is nice)? Hard to find much info on getting there for the day and what I could do on that day using only train or bus transportation.
I might have a few other questions as the trip date approaches. Back home with the folks, who are happy to see me making the plans for this trip. Flying back to school on Thursday.
Happy 2014 everyone!
