Making my new home my own

Although I totally enjoyed myself while I was on my wonderful European adventure with my parents, there was always a lurking anxiety when I thought of returning to the USA. I knew that I had a total of five days to return to my hometown, unpack, do laundry, organize, repack, say goodbye to friends and family, and move to my new apartment in Maryland. There was just so much to do in such a short period of time.

Beautiful Budapest

Although time has gotten away from me for the past week, the impression that the city of Budapest made on me has not faded. 
Though much of our tour of Central Europe blurs together, Budapest stands out as a gem; a city divided by a wide, sprawling river. A lush and green side, Buda, and an urban side, Pest.

Just passing through Slovakia

So I would like to consider myself well-traveled and worldly, but when I heard that we would be driving through Slovakia for an afternoon to get from Krakow to Budapest, I realized that I really did not know anything about the country. 

Well in one afternoon, I fell in love and was able to add a name to my ever-growing list of adventures to have (check out my Pinterest board with the same title).
