View My First Trip to Europe on Singularis's travel map.

The invitation letter I need from the guy I'll be "staying with" in Amsterdam hasn't come in. It seems that after the first copy (somewhat predictably if you ask me) got lost in the regular mail, he couriered over a second copy but not on a priority. I guess he thought I had enough time to apply for and obtain 2 visas in less than 3 weeks.

He may or may not be right but I have taken my visa appointment for this Tuesday. Its all good if the letter comes by Monday but frankly at this point I've decided o take matters in my own hand. I am planning on booking a hotel. Its easy enough and within my budget as long as my card works. I haven't used it for any kind of an international transaction yet so I am not sure.

Its been a good 3 months since I bought my ticket yet the whole thing is beginning to unwind into something of a mess.

I love that kind of travel in India (where planning seems a waste of time really) but I am not so sure I ought to take a chance on my EuroTrip...

what with it being a different continent, the probably language barrier and the fact that unlike in Jaipur, Rajasthan, I am going stick out as a tourist like a sore thumb...

Slowly getting excited about it but will really be able to believe it when I get my visas!
