Have I told anyone yet how much I love
Central Europe and its incredibly rich history?
I absolutely love
Central Europe and its incredibly rich history!!
Anyone who only thinks of WW2 or communism when people mention these countries are missing out.
So far we've spent two full days in Prague, and a couple of hours in Nürnberg and Bratislava respectively. Those "couple of hours"... not
enough!! Especially since we also had to insert lunch in between!
We've just arrived in Budapest and will be spending another two full days here. So much to see and do... I doubt we'd be able to do them all!
One thing I know for sure - I want to do this trip again, without
my parents. Dad walks too fast... Not sure if he's even taking in the sights. He loves history as much as I do, but he wants to see as much as he possibly can, that he's just walking and walking. Mom on the other hand is only in it for the sights; she was never one for history. As such, we hardly ever pause to absorb anything. So even though we're staying longer than the usual trips, I still feel like I'm going on a whirlwind tour - the "come, take pictures, leave" feeling I got the last time I was in Europe. So yup... One day...
But in the meantime, that won't stop me from taking as much as I can from the rest of this trip!
