May: Directly after arriving in Europe for the first time, I spent about five weeks travelling around the western parts before settling in Dublin. Having flown KLM from Sydney, my first stop was Amsterdam, where I spent a few nights before heading off to Paris, where I stayed a few nights before joining up with a coach tour that had left London a few days earlier.

The coach tour visited 12 countries in 17 days, from Paris, to Barcelona via Bordeaux, on to Nice and then Pisa, Florence and Venice, followed by Innsbruck, Munich, and Lichtenstein, on into Switzerland's Lauterbrunnen, and Lucerne. Then, back through Germany via Heidelberg, and Brussels through Luxembourg. From Brussels, we headed back over the channel to London via Calais.

After spending a few nights in London, I journeyed North to Glasgow for a few weeks, and then on to Dublin.

Here's a selection of photos from some of the places I visited.
