Today I’m heading to Venice to start my first ever Topdeck tour.
Topdeck is a travel company that does tours aimed at 18-35 year olds. They (like Contiki) have a bit of a reputation for being a party tour (Topdeck less so), but seeing as I don’t drink and despise late nights (unless they are filled with Netflix) I am certain that no matter how sick everyone else is in the morning, I will be raring to go.
I was a bit nervous about doing a tour – I mean, I like being alone (as we’ve discussed), I like doing whatever the hell I want, and as mentioned above, I’m not exactly the partying type.
Then again, it’s an amazing opportunity. Over 8 days I’ll get a snapshot of Venice, Munich, Prague, Berlin, and Amsterdam, enough time for me to get a feel of the cities and decide whether or not I want to visit again (I already have an idea though). It was also on sale thanks to how late I booked it, so with all my accommodation and transport included, and quite a few meals, it was pretty good value for money.
I’ll be blogging every day, keeping you updated on my wanderings (and hopefully some new friends might make an appearance)
