  1. Hi Carla. Got a lot of ideas from you. Buta question. Since you’re doing couchsurfing, how do you out it in your itinerary? I’m planning to travel Europe and this would be my first Europe travel. But because of strict immigration requirements I need to know if I should state in my itinerary that I’m doing couchsurfing. I am planning to stay in my boyfriend’s place as well and for sure we will visit nearby cities. Any advice for this one? Thank you very much.


    1. Hi Hazel, I didn’t declare that I’ll do couchsurfing because the Embassy might request an invitation letter for each host that I’ll stay with-that will be super hassle for them ;p If your boyfriend lives in Europe, you can request an invitation letter to him instead. If you’ll apply in French Embassy, they will request a form called Attestation d’accueil (he needs to get it from their city hall). In Italian Embassy, he just have to send a Letter of Invitation.. Tourist (check Italian Embassy Website Forms) OR you can just try to reserve a hotel at Most hotels allow reservations without payment. If they do, usually, they allow cancellation weeks or days before your stay – without charges. 😉 I’ll post about how to apply for a Schengen Visa (plus tips) soon! Stay tuned 😉 Thank you and good luck 😉


  2. Looking forward on your post on how to apply for a Schengen Visa 🙂 I also love traveling, I started traveling alone to Asian counries when I was 18. I haven’t been to Europe yet but it’s my dream. I’m already saving for it. Thank you for your helpful blog.


  3. hello. amazing travel! 🙂 i can relate with you traveling alone. Same feeling when traveling alone. Loneliness really strikes you but at the end of the day, you’re fulfilled. 🙂 uhm quick question, how did you get “round-trip flight reservation” or booking for schengen visa application? do i need to purchase a ticket at first with knowing the result of my application? i been wondering about this for some time now. and no one can help me. hehe thank you.

    1. Hi Janica 🙂 a travel agency secured a flight reservation and scheduled an appointment at the embassy for me(for visa applications). I suggest you purchase a ticket once you have your visa.You can check my other blog about how to apply for a schengen visa 🙂 let me know if you have other questions,I’ll be happy to help 🙂


  4. Congrats on your amazing trip. Yes, Europe is awesome. We agree about Couchsurfing too 🙂 We did our first stay with a host through Hospitality club in 2006. Next weekend we are hosting three guys from France. Hosting is also a good way to experience Europe with out leaving home and to make friends. You can just meet up or show them around – the world comes to you 😉

    1. Thank you 🙂 I agree that hosting people/couchsurfers can somehow make you feel you’re in their country 🙂 just by talking to them, sharing experiences, culture etc.. Or if they volunteer to cook their local food ☺️
