MMMMMM? MMMMMM. MM. MM.
MMMMMM? MMMMMM. MM. MM.
A summary of my experiences
Flights - not nearly as bad as I was expecting. The extra room/bed made all the difference
London - so much hotter than I expected. The amount of people really shocked me.
My favourite activity was probably The bodyguard. I also really liked Hyde Park.
Munich - the English gardens were my favourite. I enjoyed my meal of Spatzle and ---.
What surprised me most - the amount of potato I ate.
Innsbruck - I wish I had spent more time in Innsbruck. Pressed to pick a favouite / the cable car to the alps.
Achensee - there was very little not to like. Once I reached the Dripping rock I literally thought "I can go home now"
I surprised myself with the difficulty of the walks I did.
Half board was great.
Dijon - I don't think I saw Dijon's full potential. Not getting the hang of the public transport contributed to that. I had some good food though!
Languages - in each of the continental Europe countries I stayed in instructions in the hotel etc were usually given in three languages - the language of the country, english and then it varied.
Germany had french, Austria had Italian and France had Spanish.
Packing - what did I use most

Garlic aside, I think I found the perfect place to volunteer in India !
“The Environmental Center is a working model farm of the best environmental practices demonstrating traditional and innovative sustainable techniques, an educational center for teaching students and the public about environmental issues and solutions, and a platform for engaging conversation between spirituality, culture, and concern for the environment.
Permacultural practices, cultivating onions, garlic, chilies, tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, and more for vegetables, mangoes, jackfruit, guava, neem, and more for fruits and trees, lentils and chickpeas for grains, an Ayurvedic herb garden, an organic dairy with 15 cows, and operational sustainable technology.
Volunteers can expect simple vegetarian food.
Maintenance work on all farm facilities can be expected (solar panels and biogas generators for power production, composting for soil production).
Additionally, as the farm aims to become an education center, plenty of work can be done building informative signage, pathways, presentations, guest facilities, curriculums, and leading students and teachers in activities that teach environmental awareness. Finally, we sponsor research, discussion, and engagement between spirituality, culture, and the environment in the Indian context.
And of course in Varanasi there is unrivalled opportunity to engage further in Hindu religion and philosophy, classical Hindustani music and dance, and more: Sanskrit Language, Pali Language, Urdu Language, Bhojpuri Language, Vedic Studies, Hindu Philosophy, Indian Architecture, Kathak Dancing, Tabla, Sitar, Sarangi, Harmonium, Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda, Weaving, Indian Literature and Poetry, Jain Studies, Theosophy, Bhakti Studies, etc. “

Despues del Louvre fuimos caminando hasta Angelina, a comprar el chocolate de la tia.
La tienda tenia muchas cosas ricas muy bien presentadas. Habia macarons y probamos algunos. En el cafe habia tanta gente que la cola llegaba a la calle.
Seguimos caminando hasta el metro y en la estacion concorde se veia todo como si fuera la peli Zootopia.
Estaba todo buenisimo, parecia medio de verdad.Read more
