MY SOLO EUROPE TRIP! Cinque Terre, Nice, & Rome! | Morgan Yates
Hey guys it’s morgan yates back in August I had the incredible opportunity to travel to Italy in France with the group travel company Contiki You may remember them for my Israel and Jordan trip vlogs But if you’re new Contiki is a group travel company for people ages 18 to 35 They plan your itinerary book your hotels and even set you up with a full time tour guide to lead you around each day unlike my last trip with Them where I traveled with a friend However, I was joining for this adventure completely by myself not knowing anyone else would be there This is definitely a bit outside my comfort zone. So let’s go ahead and see what happened. It’s travel day. I’m so excited My suitcase, oh Great There’s nothing breakable in there. Just kidding. There’s not I need to head to the airport actually should have left already So we’re gonna go there now. I hope I got everything I hope I know when we get there actually stuff for three hours last night. This flight is at 3 p.m I land at noon tomorrow just gonna feel like 3 a.m. For me So we’re gonna hope that I can sleep on this plane in about that moveth here Alright guys, I’m going to bed not much fun for today just had a group dinner and this group is so nice I love everyone like I think it’s gonna be a really great week currently about 10 p.m And it’s this whole day has just been that dinner for me because I’ve been sleeping Waiting for all day to maybe huge sightseeing day ahead. So I’m just gonna let cliff speak for itself also million degrees out So I thought a little maxi skirt would be good or midi skirt It it’s day two in Rome. You’re kicking off the day right and early with a tour of the Colosseum from there We’re gonna go to the trevi fountain. This is our awesome camera crew right here together a video on the trip Hey, we’re getting kind of a grand tour of Rome later on. I think we’re going to the Trevi Fountain. Yeah Okay, so I’m just at the Colosseum and these two girls came up to me What are your names again we go Mosquito bite number one of the trip. This is everybody in our group Taking a little break Gelato Spot We’re now at Night came your last time and threw a coin and said I didn’t know the rules Apparently I’ll throw in your right hand over your left hand I say I threw a kind of straight back, but I guess it works These are at one point users come back to Rome title If you’re one last time Anderson, these are two it means you’re gonna come back and find love and there’s a third one I’ve already for you. But anyways, I’ll have one coin so got some coming back to Rome and not getting much busy place Becoming my third gelato of the day Dinnertime we’re now in a little Plaza have four nice Mountain action going on time to go get some more carbonara guys, Lucy McGuire movie soundtrack music Platter of spritzer. I’ve never seen anything more beautiful Morning guys, it is our final day in Rome were actually about to head to the train station I’ve not explained quite yet why I’m actually here and what we’re all here for is to test out a new trip with contiki I think it’s their Mediterranean quest train trip or something basically in the past they’ve done everything by Bus or coach and this is the first time they’re doing this trip by train. So save some time see some more places Next up we’re heading to another city in Italy. So let’s go. This is the reality of traveling Like flying off and This is progress since I walked away I made my trip friends Our first trade comfy seat, oh you my air drop on by Spanish Zombie had two trains just learned. It’s a four-hour train that is time for a quality. Napping it for a whole sleep cycle nuts dominoes We’re just getting a tutorial They come bearing gifts I’ve got some Italian snacks Italian Pringles they’re like white cheddar She does looks like Harry Potter, but not at all Nice and trendy this is the next hotel room for me and me which one will I sleep in? Probably some nights room quite big got a desk set up Quick update check in here in our next city me and little another girl on the trip We’re gonna go get some lunch a little late lunch because we’re having a much later dinner tonight like 10:00 10:30 p.m Because if you have a sunset cruise, it’s so excited I gotta do it quick get ready And then we’re gonna have such a fun nice boat outfit for the night This one Swanton under but I thought I wearing a little skirt would be comfy. We love it. Here. We love nice It’s so happy. This is the experience it really is It’s also a very obscure meal our it’s for I’m gonna off Jake is being very picky What’s good enough for you around here passes several options it was not much time Most of Alaska United. Okay surveyors 104 Cenac time and you guys smell the gelato before I got some mint gelato It’s how committed we are to having snacks on this boat because our boat for the unique oh, yes Flap it off. It was thought of that but now that’s what I want Just a casual 11 p.m. Italian dinner So someone named me as an idiot and didn’t bring a new battery for my camera So we’re doing my phone up all day and the prettiest place we’re going cuz I’m stupid I’m about to go to a cooking class. So I posted asking which dress I should wear. They’re literally exactly the same I want to wear the black one But I feel like people are gonna vote for me to wear the red one because I never wear color and I made too much of a big deal about that so Time will tell close-up shot and the winning dress. Oh you ready saw? Which is great news I put on the red one and it’s so wrinkly like it needed to go in the bathroom when I was showering or something because It was just fresh out of my suitcase. So wrinkly and the black doesn’t show it as much so out for the night Thanks for voting helping me choose my outfit of the night. We are now in route. Okay we go through and route through art. I Know it’s really truly. Are you sitting there? yes, poor guy Danny the coolest tour guide Flashbacks can turn on the booze Believe in him no way no chance. She feels confident with us I’m just learning about these people right now In reality our pesto making class Made it Everyone’s up Here’s my conclusion so sudden look the prettiest but she was made with love Think that we made this Morning today we’re Okay, my first words today soon as my voice is dropped an octave You’re about to depart from here still unsure about the pronunciation of where we are. It’s raining Still don’t know how to pronounce where we are And every person on this trip has an accent of some sort So it doesn’t even help me understand how to say it as like an American It’s been awesome in this city. Pesto class last night was so fun maybe the most fun we’ve had so far other than I need to insert because this was all taken on my iPhone and one of the little talents we were walking around cuz we had some free time after lunch And most people opted to go swim and we were going to do that but on the way We saw this like big rock cliff thing Where all these people are jumping up and there was this old man at the top We like see the old man through like all like we’ll just wait for him to jump off it’ll be cute and he continues to like stand up to go do it and then let go sit back down and we got So invested, we watched this for like and by the end of this it was a 40-minute experience So just imagine how invested one can get in 40 minutes when you’re like I’ve already waited here for so long I will not leave until this man jumps. We’re like 30 minutes in and the whole time I’ve been like should we shave our hands at like Also where we’re watching this there’s like this huge like railing Bridge type thing so so many other people are watching him as well. Who’ve been there the whole time I just said it. I was like right let’s just cheer her let’s commit for him So we did and then as the time went on we got like we led that you know We really did really got the entire crowd and like everyone in the water into like cheering. He had an audience And then he’d like get up to do it and then it walk away He like disappeared completely real like he’s done like he’s getting down and then he came back up So we could only assume that he was like stuck there and couldn’t climb back down because the rocks are like actually pretty crazy and so then some more people from our group walked up cuz it was like trying to go to the Train and then one of them just Started yelling a countdown. She was like 3 2 And he jumped So it’s just like such a cute little experience I left there just like on top of the moon like you would think that’s the most fun. I had all trip I was so excited finishing packing. I’m gonna head to the train station because next we’re going to it knees next Or the train come for the trainee for that. Yeah, two trains. They’re gonna do a little Break and content.
