Today is Tuesday, I am in Krakow, Poland.
With my trip, started at 21th Sep, fifteen days till Oct. 5th. The route is like this, fly to Riga(Latvia), take bus up to Tallinn(Estonia), ferry to Helsinki(Finland) for one day trip then back to Tallinn. Then take a flight down to Vilnius(Lithuania), bus to Warsaw(Poland), train to Krakow(Poland). Then bus to Budapest(Hungary), probably to Lake Balaton(Hungary), the biggest lake in eastern Europe.
So with this trip, I went to Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, will go to Hungary. Just I will skip Slovakia, was thinking should I go or not, but found a cheap bus ticket from Krakow to Budapest, then I skip Slovakia. It can be nice or just normal there, just there are too many places to go on this world. Even went to lots of countries in Europe, still just a tiny place inthe whole world.
Eastern Europe is actually very nice, and safe I will say. Also not too many Asian people, except in Helsinki, tons of Japanese tourists, come and go like winds. All the cities I went, they all have old towns, and they are very beautiful. Walking in the old town is a very nice, relaxing thing. Most of them try to ban cars inside, so less car and just enjoy wandering. I would like to live in a city which has an old town, one reason is that I like to walk in the old town during the night, those yellow lights make me feel warm, always welcome to have a seat in the old bars, have a meal in the restaurant. Oh...nice!
And English is very easy to use here actually, just talk to young people, sometimes they speak better English than those in the west. Just it is already not cheap here. Hope the price of living can be lower in Budapest! But still acceptable as lucky me work in europe.
I stay in people's places, so get nice taking care. No worry about me.
