    You make some bloomin’ fantastic points here! I was studying in first Spain and then Italy during university and my friends back home in Wales would constantly complain how I’m “out there sunning it up” while they were at home “bogged down with work in the pouring down rain”. But, like, I was LIVING out of there, STUDYING in University and basically doing the same as they were, just with more sun. It’s not like I spend 9 hours a day out on the beach, sunbathing.
    And on a completely unrelated note – $10,000 for three months in Europe?!?! How on earth did you manage that?! Haha.

      Haha thanks, Rhiannon – you get it!! 😛
      I find it a little bit insulting when people say that sort of thing, actually. It’s as though they think I’m some rich geezer cruising the oceans on a superyacht and calling out to my crew to get the helicopter ready for a day trip.
      I was earning considerably more money during my Eurotrip Era, so my pockets were a bit easier to access. $10,000 didn’t seem too difficult to spend at the time… But now, I also find it hard to believe. Erm, Snowboarding, a lot of partying, car hire, transport across the channel a couple of times, flights. Somehow it all added up 🙂
      I certainly wouldn’t be ringing up those numbers now – even in Brazilian Reais haha
