Washington, and More Specifically, Departure from Port Angeles

Backpacking Trip in Europe! From the beginning…

Backpacking Trip in Europe! From the beginning…

After surpassing the reasonable amount of hours one can spend in a car and expect maintain their sanity, my friend and I arrived in her hometown of Sequim, Washington. From there, I would spend the night and get on the ferry to Victoria, Canada the next day! (So far for transportation methods we’re at train, car, and ferry). The realization of what we were about to do was slowly starting to hit me, with the intensity of a speeding train but the delayed comprehension of a slow motion clip. What were we thinking!? Were we really about to go backpacking around Europe by ourselves? Two 20 year-old females with zero traveling experience, overconfident but underwhelming Spanish, and just a loose folder of bookings, plane tickets, and a lightly researched itinerary. All I kept thinking was what if one of our hostels doesn’t work out? What if we booked the wrong bus? What if we get lost and stranded with no money and never make it out of Canada??? All of these worries were half valid, but it was easier to accept that this trip was happening, whether we were ready for it or not, and just plan to make it up along the way. We double and then triple checked out bookings, making a few adjustments and fixing mistakes, and on the next day we were back in the car driving to the Port Angeles Ferry Station.
