I decided super last minute that I would make my own Europe Tour (I’m from Canada)! I hesitated a lot on taking this trip but then I realized I should live my life to the fullest! I gathered enough money, this is the age where I have the most energy so why not 😀 Hello, traveling alone time !
Here I am, traveling 3 countries in a week!
And of course, who says, traveling, says, READING!! 😍😍❤️
During my first trip, I brought waay too many books for a months and I couldn’t finish it. Now in a week, I told myself I may only finish 1-2 books at most. So I brought 3 LOL JUST IN CASE I finish too fast, you know…
HOW DO YOU GET MORE READING DONE WHILE TRAVELING
This is an important question because I did struggle a lot to find time to read in my 10 years of traveling.But I gathered a few tips :
1. Bring e-books
I don’t own e-book readers yet but my phone’s screen is big enough to enjoy them. They are actually the perfect company because they don’t weight anything.
2. Back-up paperback copy
In case your phone/ e-reader dies OK 😂
3. The waiting time right after the security check-in. It’s perfect! People always tell me about the 3hours rule before flying. BUT HONESTLY, I’ve always been so frkn early every time. I can wait up to 1-2hours before boarding so that’s a good time to take out your book!
4. If you can travel by trains, go ahead! It’s a great way to see the views between the cities and a wonderful time to read. Especially when they have a sightseeing lounge, you should take advantage of that and read in front of a calm and peaceful sight.
5. The breaks between your city tours. If you like to wander around the visited cities like I do,you probably have noticed that it gets tiring after a few hours and you want to collect yourself in some nearby coffee shops. This is where I would order a peach iced tea or iced chocolate and open a book! It relaxes me and when I’m feeling reenergized, I continue the wandering 🙂
I am now in Athens! I promise I would do a whole post about my travels soon 😀 I will also be attending BookCon New York this weekend ! Keep an eye about that 😉
