It was not easy to plan for solo trip.... I wanted to go with few friends but nobody was available. However, in the hindsight I can't thank everyone enough who politely rejected my request :P . So, it all started in Jan this year wherein I just wanted to go for Euro trip ... My first one... Unlike many of my friends who had been there I had never been to Europe. So there was fascination about the continent.... I researched and finally decided to cover Italy, Austria, Hungary and Czech mainly because this combination offered me perfect gamut of Renaissance architecture , wonderful Alps, party opportunities and not to mention these were cheaper compared to other parts of Europe. There were other places where I wanted to go but I parked this for next time as I didn't just want to hop from one place to another. So, here the preps went. I got tickets in Feb. A lot of drama ensued thereafter .which included doing multiple rounds to get my name corrected in pan followed by multiple rounds of visa office that included visits to Hyderabad and Mumbai and finally getting the visa on the condition that I will show my face to consulate once I return back :P Well that's funny! So, here the journey begins ..... I landed in Rome on 1st Jul'16 and was a bit anxious and fraught as now the "solo" was getting better out of me.... Nevertheless, I met two wonderful room mates on the first day itself which eased the environment … Rome is a typical capital city. I spent a day there and headed for Rimini.
1. Rimini: It is a small beach city and a must go if somebody is looking for a less touristy but amazing beaches!
2. Genga: For the famous Grotto di Frasissi caves. As an added bonus, one can also visit museum which comes free with the cave pass.
