hello, I'm planning on doing a 4-7 month tour of Europe (western, central, southern and eastern) I would like some tips and advice. this is my first time traveling alone 21(m) so I'm pretty new to this I still have a couple 8-9 months before my trip so I'm mostly planing right now. my budget is 18,000-25,000 but I can extend it if needed. I would like advice on which cites/ places I should focus on, I also want to see the natural sites (mountains, lakes, rivers, forest ). I'm open to adding places or removing them if there is a good reason. I had to remove a couple of countries because of the Schengen zone 90 days rule.
side note: I was thinking of buying a bicycle while in Europe. have any of you done this?
side note 2: I'm African American is there any cultural things I should be aware of?
edit: the days are placeholders I'm willing to stay longer in certain places and even extended my trip by a couple of months. my goal is to explore as much a possible hence the budget.

OLD HABITS DIE HARD
Revenant’s mechanical body doesn’t need to sleep, but his human mind still needs REST. he doesn’t have a sleep schedule and he’s not even sure that what he does is sleeping, exactly, but every now and then, mental exhaustion catches up to him and he ‘rests’. it’s similar to a computer’s sleeping in that just a minimal amount of power keeps his systems going, but most of his body’s lights are off, including optics - again it’s pretty hard to tell the difference, outwardly, between unconsciousness / sleep / an empty shell.
if he’s unlucky, he’ll still dream sometimes.
and his need for rest is super random. a lot of the time, when it hits him, Rev has no idea when the last time he ‘slept’ was because he just doesn’t keep track. he’ll just keep going until he feels ‘tired’; sometimes that’s after 24 hours, sometimes 36 hours, sometimes it’s not for days. usually he ‘sleeps’ for anywhere between 10 min to 10 hours at a time.
of course he doesn’t tell anyone this happens. most people assume he doesn’t sleep, and he’s fine with that.
and sometimes when he wakes up, depending on where he is, he’ll go about a ‘normal’ morning routine before catching himself.
For the ship asks, thoughts on Banicarlos?
ohhh banicarlos 🥺
I actually enjoy it, even though I’m not the biggest fan of kaimei ( it’s kind of a discomfort ship for me 😭 ) I think Banica and Carlos might be the one exception for me ehe 🥺🥺
I think, like most canon couples, they could have had such a happy life if not for what happened to the both of them 😭 both of them had such isolated childhoods and were constantly suffering... if only they were able to run away and live a peaceful, comforting life 😭
I think that deep down, they really understand each other, and if given the chance they could have helped the other heal and find inner peace and love... 😭💕
and I honestly don’t think Carlos should be SO harshly judged for how he reacted to her as a child; he was, after all, a CHILD, often sick and out of sorts. and I can only imagine how his family would speak of the Conchitas when around him— we know children copy what they’ve heard and learned. it wasn’t right, and as someone who probably relates to Banica the most out of the sinners because of her problems, I wish he could have reacted differently. but I really think he truly liked her then, and did love her when they reunited 😭😭
idk I just think they’re a very tragic couple 💔 and I’m not a fan of the graveyard ending at all so... I like to imagine they’re living a happy, peaceful life together in the fourth period, traveling and experiencing the world together... 🥺💕
