So Gábor and I just bought our tickets to Budapest. We’re flying out of North Carolina on the 17th of December and will be returning to the States on the 19th of January. That’s roughly 32 days in Europe.
Combined with my trip to Cancun, which is 9 days, I’ll be out of the States for roughly 41 days. When I plan trips, I go all out, don’t I? We’ll be mostly spending time with friends and family that live there so that will help tremendously with costs of hotels/hostels.
The only thing I know for sure is that we’re going to Budapest, spending Christmas in Slovakia, and then spending 3 days in London before our flight back to the States. The stuff in between might range from a trip to Erdély (Transylvania), Cracow, Prague and maybe some other similar places. We might also go skiing in the Tatra mountains, which borders Poland and Slovakia. We have plenty of time to decide and plenty of time to do with what we decide.
In case any of you didn’t know, it’s not a very good idea to book so close to Christmas time. I knew, but there’s nothing we can do about that. Prices have jumped up tremendously. I’ve never actually travelled during the holidays like this, so here’s hoping everything goes as smoothly as possible.
