Greetings, my friends! I’m sure you have been awaiting my return with bated breath, and here it is. Butterblogger is back once more for the last trip of this academic year. To clarify – my year starts July 1, and ends June 30, so this is my final trip for the year, and I honestly don’t have another big journey planned for five months, so this had best be good.
What do I have planned? No, not Italy (if you want more of Italy, please come back in October!). I’m off to someplace new.
Back in November there were glorious sales, and I scoured the map in search of a destination. I knew I wanted to go someplace new. At long last, my eyes settled on a destination toward the East of Europe, where the West ends and the East begins, and I clicked the button.
Later, when I had time to really consider my decision, I did some searching to confirm that this was a good idea (mostly, we can cancel our tickets within 24 hours, you know) and indeed all signs pointed to yes.
Incidentally, my research also revealed that Bucharest is not a high priority for me right now.
Since then, I have prepared in fits and starts, and tonight, at long last, I am heading off into the waning light on the eastern horizon. Beyond the night and the airborne sunrise lies a transfer in Amsterdam and a final destination in Hungary. Budapest awaits, and so do I.
