Trip Report Thursdaysd Goes Back

Jump to last reply

Goes back to Europe, that is. Ever since my last long trip, to South America at the end of 2012, I've been saying that my next long trip would also be to South America, to Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. But somehow, despite actually buying guidebooks, I never got around to producing an itinerary. It finally dawned on me that maybe I didn't really want to go back to SA. Maybe I really wanted to go somewhere else. Maybe Europe? Next thing you know, I had the Thomas Cook rail map of Europe spread all over the breakfast table.

I decided that this would be a "go back to" trip. I would go back to favorite places in Europe, traveling more slowly than usual, so I could enjoy them at leisure. But I would start with somewhere new. South and west Romania. I had visited the north - Maramures and Bucovina - back in 2006, but I hadn't made it to Transylvania in the south. Friends had visited Romania in the spring, and reported interesting Art Nouveau buildings in the west, near the Hungarian border. (Shades of Subotica, the Art Nouveau gem in Serbia, right on the Hungarian border.)

I'm posting two TRs for this trip. One, after the fact, for Romania. And one, possibly real time, for everywhere else. I'm currently in Szeged, Hungary, moving to Budapest on Sunday.

Here's the link for the Romania TR: http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/roaming-romania-take-two.cfm
