At the Airport...

I'm sitting here at my gate in Copenhagen, waiting for my connecting flight to Brussels to get here, while creepily listening to French people have a conversation that I'm desperately trying to understand... I really miss French, it's so much prettier than Danish... I have to go to France ASAP. Technically I will get to say I've been to Belgium...and to confirm that I will definitely be purchasing a Belgian waffle at the airport...and probably some chocolate. After an hour in Belgium, it's off to PRAGUE!!!

I have been planning this 10-day trip around Eastern Europe since this past summer when I created my Excel spreadsheet of "Things To Do in Europe" (categorized by country **NERD**)... but I have been dreaming of going to Prague and Budapest long before that. My infatuation with the Carpathian mountain area of Europe really set in when I read Bram Stoker's Dracula. No I didn't read it because of my Twilight-phase...which I admit I went through...and no I don't want to talk about it... For about the first 100 pages, Stoker describes the landscape of Eastern Europe. He made every detail come to life and he created a mysterious and enchanted world of dark beauty. His literary language is probably why it's one of my favorite books.

I can't wait until I see those mountains as a travel by train from Prague to Budapest...

...and then back closer towards modern civilization to Vienna, with a short journey through the Julian Alps to Ljubljana, Slovenia (a country that's a combination of all the best parts of the Alps, the Balkans, and Italy).

No pictures in this blog post, but get ready for updates after every city because I brought my computer!!! 

Time to get on the plane!
