Europe + India 2015 Itinerary :)

My next big trip is only 2 and a half months away! Here is a brief overview of what I’m looking to see/do. I’ll be away for 3 weeks. I’ll be in each city for 2-3 days. I’ve booked all my hostels/hotels except for one in Santorini because I am still looking. The next thing I will be doing, which worked well for me last time, is print out a map of each city. On the map, I’ll mark down where my hostel is + all the attractions and find out how long it will roughly take for me to get to these places. Athens, Greece Hostel: Students & Travellers Inn In Athens, I would like to get a feel for the ancient history of the city. Top on my list: The Acropolis of Athens (AKA the “high” city) Acropole d''Athènes There, I want to see the Temple of Olympian Zeus Acropole d''Athènes And the Parthenon The_Parthenon_in_Athens Walk through Anafiotika which is a 19th century neighbourhood on the northern slopes of the Acropolis hills anafiotika Island hop from Athens to Ios, Santorini and Mykonos (round ferry trip = roughly $280) Ios, Greece Hostel: Francesco’s ios Oia, Santorini, Greece Hostel/Hotel: To be determined oia Mykonos, Greece Hostel: Paraga Beach Hostel to party it up poolside-at-paraga-beach-hostel I have another day in Athens, Greece. Hostel: Athenstyle Then I fly to Delhi, India. Hostel: The Madpackers Hostel My main attraction that I would like to see is the Taj Mahal which is in Agra. There is a day tour from Delhi to Agra which is approximately $180. I’m currently trying to negotiate a better price. It takes about 4-5 hours to get to Agra. Taj_Mahal_(Edited) After a few days in India, I’ll be off to Istanbul, Turkey I’ll be in Istanbul for a few hours just to walk around. Other than that, I’ll be doing a tour package consisting of Cappadocia AND Pamukkale. At Cappadocia, I will be doing their infamous hot air balloon ride and at Pamukkale, I will be checking out the hot springs 🙂 The package includes flights to Cappadocia and from Pammukale, overnight bus from Cappadocia to Pammukale, accommodations, breakfast and an English speaking professional guide. This package costs around $533 (excluding cave hotel, which I don’t mind). It is quite pricey because of transportation and the time frame but I’ll make it work! Hot Air Balloon Ride at Cappadocia, Turkey balloon-ride-picture Hot Springs in Pamukkale, Turkey  pamukkale04 Next on the list is Moscow, Russia Hostel: Guesthouse & Hostel Flat No7 I don’t have much planned in Moscow but I will be making the most of my stay when I get there 🙂 St. Basil Cathedral StBasils Last but not least, I will be heading to back to Toronto only to be staying over night and then head out again for EDC LAS VEGAS for my birthday weekend 😀 maxresdefault
