Backpacking Europe

This is my first tour for Europe.

I’m currently living in Mexico in case you still didn’t know that.

The main city I’m heading to, is called Brighton.

According to these maps I just watched, it belongs to the UK, Great Britain and England (please correct me if I’m wrong)

I was planning to launch Marketing With Sergio with all the bells and whistles just days ago.

All out of the blue I received a one last minute invitation to go visit my sister in England and that was certainly NOT in my plans or at least not for this year.

I was preparing a lot of cool things for you but instead, I have been booking reservations like crazy, checking out flights and everything at the last minute.

Going Digital Nomad

However, I don’t like making up excuses so this is what I’m planning to do:

  • I’ll take a small 13” Macbook with me.
  • As long as there is an internet connection available I’ll keep updating this place.
  • I’m taking a camera for photographs and a flip video camera as well, just in case.
  • I’m also taking my running shoes and my iPod shuffle and hope to do some jogging over there for inspiration.
  • I do NOT know where I’m going after Brighton, I may go to France, Spain or even Holland!

Flight Itinerary from Mexico to London

The Euro Trip Plan

This is what is supposed to happen…

  • I’m leaving this next Sunday to Mexico City.
  • I’ll stay one night there and then flight to Atlanta, Georgia.
  • From there I’ll hopefully make it to Gatwick airport near London.
  • And finally to Brighton by car.

Conclusion

That’s it.

Remember that I’m leaving on Sunday, so that leaves me with at least two days to write more updates.

I will try to focus on other parts of the blog as it’s still empty by adding more content here and there.

Also check out for an email capture form as well so you can keep updated with the blog without the need of coming over and see nothing has changed, deal?

Take care and speak tomorrow!

    How exciting. Life would be very dull without these surprises. I am sure you will find plenty to blog about.
    Looking forward to following your trip where ever you decide to go.
    Have a great one.

      Hey Sandy,

      I couldn’t agree anymore with you!

      I have this “thing” for recording myself on camera but after all the amazing comments and the messages on twitter, I just have to do it!

      Thank you for stopping by and your best wishes, I look forward to keep a close eye on your blog.

      Take care!

    Hi Sergio,
    I think you are going to have such a great time on this European adventure and I hope you take lots of pictures, make videos of your journey and update this blog often.

    It is great that you already have some of our “strange” money for your trip. One interesting point of difference between American and UK English is that paper money are referred to as “bills” in the US but as “notes” over here. So we talk about five dollar bills but not five pound bills, instead they are called five pound notes.

    You are utterly right about Brighton. It is a city in England and England is part of Great Britain (sometimes just called Britain) which is the collective name for the countries of England, Scotland and Wales.

    The United Kingdom (or UK for short) refers to the countries of Great Britain plus Northern Ireland although not all British people would actually know the difference between Great Britain and the UK (honestly!)

    Finally I am informed that there are more than 400 pubs in Brighton so you should have no problem getting a beer or two while you are there.

    You may have already seen this but this is the URL for the Brighton travel and tourism website:
    http://www.city-of-brighton.com/

    I don’t really know very much at all about Brighton so soon you will know a lot more than I do and I will be coming to you for information about the place.

    Patrick.

      Wow Patrick, so much to learn already!

      Glad I got the zones right, I didn’t want to offend anyone as sometimes people can get mad when others don’t understand their political divisions, so whew!

      I also can’t wait to see what it’s like over there and of course, visit some pubs as well, I’d never miss those!

      Thank you for sharing that link on the city of Brighton, it certainly looks way, way fun and interesting.

      I know I will be in awe as soon as I get off the plane, I’m going to put my ‘camera shyness’ away somehow and hopefully I will record and share the videos about the whole thing!

      Take care and speak soon, thanks for stopping by!

        You really can’t miss an opportunity like this not to record some videos…and I suspect that as soon as you have done the first one you will find it to be quite fun…especially as you will be doing so many videos from brand new locations. It will be really interesting. In fact I can’t think of a better way of getting used to recording videos.

        Now I am going to bore you for second or two…Gatwick Airport (LGW or EGKK to pilots) is 48km (28miles) south of London and is the world’s busiest single runway airport with 52 aircraft movements (landings or take offs) every hour on average.

        Actually Gatwick has two parallel runways but only one can be used at a time and the shorter of the two is mainly used as a taxiway for the other runway.

        OK that is it. I promise not to hijack your blog any longer for boring aviation statistics. ;)

          Hey Patrick,

          I will record myself, not a single doubt about it!

          And you didn’t bore me one second with the facts you just gave me about the Gatwick airport, world’s busiest single runway airport with an average of 52 aircraft movements… my GOD… that’s insane!!! I hope we don’t crash hahaha

          I did see the airport from above in Google Maps and it looked very small but I had no clue it was THAT busy.

          PS. Never use ‘hijack” and “aviation” on the same sentence… makes me nervous! LMAO

      Hi Anna,

      Yes, I’m indeed one lucky guy!

      I’ve always wished good to everyone around me, yet sometimes things don’t go that well for myself.

      This is one of those moments in which I’m just grateful for all that I have.

      My family, my friends, my partners, life’s a gift and I’m currently embracing it!

      Thank you for your great comment and I hopefully will be able to post whatever happens to me over there LOL

      It should be veeery fun!

      Take care and speak soon! ;-)

    Hey Sergio, I am so thrilled for you mate. I remember what a great time I had in the States and even though I took my 11″ MacBook I didn’t do any blogging :D

    I hope you have the best of times my friend and I’ll be waiting with bated breath for those updates and photos.

      Hey Sire,

      First of all a million thanks for coming over to my new site.

      I’m really hoping to document a little bit about my trip, not that much as you know I’m very camera shy but hopefully with your help and the help from others I will get past that.

      Can’t really write more, I need to catch a plane!

      Take care mate, looking forward to speak soon!

      Sergio

    Sedrgio, I hope you have a great flight mate. Don’t worry all that much about being shy either, I’m sure the excitement of the adventure will be a great cure ;)

      Hey Sire,

      Thanks for the encouragement as always!

      I finally landed on England (currently on Brighton) and I’m literally in awe mode.

      You’re right about the adventure being the cure, even though I still feel very camera-shy I managed to record at least one video from Brighton’s pier at the beach.

      I need to get some electrical things to be able to upload it but I will get them sooner or later.

      Thanks for following on me for this trip and stopping by to leave me your comment Sire.

      Really appreciate it mate!

    WOW!! What a great trip you will have. I can’t wait to hear about it. Next time you had better add Scotland to that itinerary. I hope you’re packing warm clothes as it’s not Mexico weather here!!
    You’ll have a great time. I envy you.
    Safe journey,
    Joshua.

      Hey Joshua,

      Nice to have you around here again!

      Scotland, sounds PERFECT to me! ;-)

      About packing warm clothing yeah, I don’t even have clothing for this kind of weather but I believe I have been taking it pretty much like a champ with the clothing I brought.

      Had some flue going on in the morning but after my excellent choice of vitamin C fruits, it’s gone now and I’m currently working on some cold Budweisers LOL

      I’ll update this place today in the evening or tomorrow before parting because I’m not sure if this is my last night here at Brighton.

      Take care and thanks for stopping by (I envy you for living in such an amazing continent too!)

      Thanks for your wishes, I’m safe now (and I did get a bit scared in the 767!! haha)
