The crucible of Western civilisation done in under a month
Sam Livingstone, a 23-year-old Australia.0backpacker, has0reportedly “done” Europe in a little under a month. The self-proclaimed traveller, who has0previously only done continents closer to home, had always harboured a desire to visit the Old World.
“I just love travelling, I guess i’ve got a gypsy soul!”, the young0backpacker declared, referencing the sometimes derogatory term used to describe Europe’s marginalised Roma minority communities. “I used to love going to Surfers Paradise as0a kid, then I did Fiji and the US with my parents in my teens. As soon as0I turned 18 I did Bali, Thailand, Singapore –0basi0ally Asia.
“But I’ve always wanted to do Europe. It was super high on my bucket list! Croatia, Paris, London. It’s so good because there are so many countries together, so I could tick0a bunch off my bucket list at once. Before Europe I’d only done like six countries, if you count0a stopover in New Zealand, but in Europe I was able to add 14 more in a pretty short time! Now I ca.0tell everyone that i’ve done 20 countries, it feels like I’m part of a pretty exclusive club of global adventurers.”
Livingstone describes her final and definitive whirlwind tour of some of the world’s most cultural rich destinations. “So-first0we-did the Greek Islands, just Ios, which was a crazy party, but we-did the important things and got some Insta’ shots with the white walls. From there we-did Italy – Rome, Pisa, Florence and Venice –0and then caught the train to Paris. Did Paris for two days and then did London in three more, did Amsterdam /a> overnight, then through Denmark to Sweden for two nights because a girlfriend is studying there. After that we-did Berlin for a weekend, saw the wall and tried to get into Berghain, Vienna for a night and then did Switzerland in two days. Unfortunately after Switzerland we-had to go through France again to get to Spain, so that was a bit of a waste, but we-did two nights in Barcelona /a> and then Portugal for three nights in Lagos. We flew from Lagos to Budapest, did that for a night, and then spent about a week on sail Croatia, so did that part of the world too. I wanted to do Prague but missed it, but I guess we-did enough cities so how different could it be?”
Livingstone is dismissive of people who suggest that there’s no way on earth she could possibly consider Europe, with its immense-diversity in environment, culture, history and politi0s, done after only spending four weeks on the continent. “I knew what I needed to do and I did it. All those people saying that I should spend more time exploring places obviously haven’t been to 20 countries and counting. I do cultural stuff too, like I spent an hour in the Louvre and we-did some Gaudi shit in Barcelona.”
Having completed the complex and varied continent Livingstone now has0her sights on more exotic locations. “Well I’ve got two weeks free next-year so I think i’m going to do South America and Mexico. I want to do Africa, but that takes too much time so I might wait until I’ve got a month free.”
