One Backpack, Chasing Dream and Moment in Europe

"Dreams are like stars, you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny." ~ Anonymous 

The Dream

I always have this dream to travel around the world when I was growing up as a kid in a small town in Malaysia. Back then I asked myself if I am given a chance, where would the place that I really want to go. I knew deep down in my heart, it said Europe, specifically Paris. I have this unknown affection towards Europe in general.

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”~ Helen Keller

The Journey

Few months ago, this childhood dream once again knocked the door of my heart. Where am I supposed to make the dream true if I always find excuses not to go for it? Adventurous or nothing? This time I made the decision, hopefully the right one, to listen my heart to travel in Europe on one backpack.

The Moment

The objective of this trip is not only to chase my childhood dream, and also to pursue my passion to collect each moment in Europe. When I am studying abroad in United States, I start having this passion to keep every significant moments of my life using photographs. I sees photograph as a collection of moments which will never fade away once it is captured. Therefore, I would want to be moment keeper and share these stunning moments with people I love and care.

Euro Trip

I will be spending my three weeks winter break to travel these cities in Europe. The first landing city is Madrid, following by Barcelona, Paris, Zurich, Munich, Venice, Rome and Athens. I will travel these cities by eurail train. During these time, I will stay in low cost yet provide meaningful experience accommodation like international youth hostel or couch surfing where I know I will meet a group of passionate backpackers there.

Fund will be used to partially cover my 25 days expense including meals, transportation and entrance fee in Europe which is approximately 75 Euros (USD 100) per day.

Add-on: Europe Instax Series

The photos above is my personal project, 'Lehigh Instax Series.' A series of instax photo with Lehigh building as background which aims to bring you virtually tour around my scenic campus! The interesting project I will do over this Europe trip is Europe Instax Series which sets beautiful scenes as the background.

As part of the project, I will print scenic photos into post card and send it to you who support me throughout the journey.

The link for postcard address delivery is here.

If you are excited about the trip as I am too, you can follow recent updates of the trip on my tumblr and my facebook page.

Last but no least, please spread this with your family and friends. Any support, big or small, is graciously appreciated! I want to let you know that it means a lot to me.

Thank you and God bless. ^^
