Alhamdulillah i have been to EUROPE before when i was studied in UK (7 years ago)- memang best sangat2!!! Masa pergi dulu, i follow Kelana Convoy "16 Days Conquest of Europe" ~ SMALL PRICE...BIG TOUR COVERAGE..Maklumlah student. Mana mampu nak travel mewah2 sangat. Jadi kene la pergi back-packing ikut student/budget package yang Kelana Convoy offer. A great experience i must say. Tak semua orang boleh buat kan. But i did it with some of my close friends.

Highlights of my Journey :)

We depart from Park Lane, London and travel down to Dover, from here we take the ferry across to France. 

When we reached Belgium, we stopped for Belgian chocolates!  

Continue into Holland, we set up camp near Amsterdam. The next day, we drove to the picturesque Dutch fishing and cheese village of Volendam. We tried variety of seafood and have our picture taken in a traditional Dutch costume. We posed for a memorable picture by the windmills. We spend the rest of the day  in Amsterdam city centre. We took a boat ride by the many canals.


We headed south east crossing into Germany. By late afternoon we arrived at Heidelberg. Sightseeing includes admiring the Heidelberg Castle, City Hall, Market Square architecture, Neckar river, Hollander Hof hotel and restaurant and the bridge gate. By evening we headed towards our campground.





By late afternoon the following day, we reached Neuchwanstein castle. Built by King Ludwig, this casle is the fairiest of all the fairy castles, situated on top of a hill surrounded by mountains and lakes. Mr Disney was inspired by this particular castle when he built his Disneyland fairy tale castle. 

We then continue our journey into Austria towards our campsite. We spent the next morning going around the City of Innsbruck. Visited the Golden balcony, the lod City gate and shop for SWAROVSKI crystals and accessories. We also went to sky jump ramp built for the winter olympic which was once held here in Innsbruck.
