I am so very behind in telling all of you where I am. Honestly, blogging has turned into a lower priority on this marathon of travel, with moments of wifi reserved for writing my column or researching hostels and activities to do around the world. Right now, I should be figuring out what to do on my last day of Amsterdam and planning my six-day trip touring breweries in Belgium.
In the past month I’ve traveled from Istanbul through Bulgaria and onto Bucharest, Romania where I ate cheap and delicious Italian food and drank red wine with Dracula-themed names on Halloween. From there, I stopped for a lovely 9 days in Budapest arriving on All Saint’s Day and leaving only when a Eurail pass prompted me onward to Vienna. After three nights in Vienna drinking coffees and eating apfelstrudel, I stopped for a night in Zurich with friends of Andy who served us raclette and gave us a tour of the city.
Then, an all too quick stop in Munich and 12 whole days in Berlin, that I’ll have to write about in full. This week, I popped down to Rüdesheim am Rhine, a quiet little Riesling-producing village to sit in saunas and try to appreciate white wine. Right now, I’m sitting on my friend Melle’s couch in Amsterdam (we met in Laos earlier this year), trying to muster the courage to go out and face the city again.
We’re almost done, now. Just Belgium, Paris, and London to go before hitting up the Queen Mary 2 and arriving in NYC. Whew.
