I cannot believe that 10 months already have passed since we started our adventure. 10 months full of amazing experiences, of things we had to learn, of moments we stepped out from our comfort zone. If you want to see how we planned everything, have a look here.

10 months, 11 countries and more than 37000 km covered

So here we are, at the end of 2019, counting the places we visited: 11 countries, 50 cities, more than 37000 km covered, at least 1500000 steps which is around 1100 km that we walked.

How does it sound? For us, amazing! And honestly, it is a dream that came true.

Europe

Everything started in Malta, that pretty little country in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. It was followed by Romania, our home-country where we explored cities we had never been before. And, of course, we couldn’t miss Germany, both country side and big cities.

We spent one month in the most beautiful country in the world (based on our opinion), Switzerland. Discovering Switzerland was like living in another world, a perfect one. Montreux, Lausanne, Bern, these are just few of the places that left us speechless. Not to forget about the “hidden’ spots. 😀

Austria was the next country we stopped in. I can totally say that Vienna and Salzburg are absolutely amazing cities. And I feel that there was not enough time spent there. We will surely come back. 😀

When a super cheap bus ticket changed our destination we ended up in Bratislava, Slovakia. Charming, with beautiful architecture and impressive history. Loved it.

There are only 200 km between Bratislava and Budapest, so guess what was the next destination? Budapest, of course! Not sure what to say I loved the most. The view from the Bastion, the Danube, the parliament, the food? Maybe everything?

Where is the best place to spend the summer while in Europe? I would say, Greece! This is why we spent one month in Andros Island, Greece, that is located one hour far by ferry from Athens.

Asia

Our adventure in Asia started after we bought a one way ticket from Bucharest, Romania to Hanoi, Vietnam. Exploring this country from North to South was something that totally fulfilled our souls. More than 2000 km covered by bus, train and scooter. Amazing views, super friendly locals and the cheapest food. 😀 Vietnam, you really impressed us.

Thailand is the country we have been always felt like home. Maybe the landscapes or perhaps the people. Or perhaps the “no spicy” food that is burning your mouth. :)) But discovering in Thailand both the city life and the island life makes me wanna say that I dream of a paradise island life. 😀

What’s next? Cambodia, the country that shocked us the most! We faced the poverty, the garbage, the bad smell in Phnom Penh but also the most spectacular temples in Siem Reap and the quietest and peaceful place in Kampot. Huge discrepancies but totally worth it.

So yes, this is it! 10 best months ❤️

I don’t have enough words to express my gratitude. Guys, allow yourself to dream and do what really makes you happy. Create the moments you want to remember because the adventures do fill your soul.

Happy travels!
