Hello to everyone, and welcome to the blog of my adventures in Eastern Europe during the Summer of 2009! If you followed my adventures in Iceland and Scandinavia during the Summer of 2008, welcome back! I welcome all of my new readers this year as well!


Also, a very special hello to all of the great friends I met in Europe last year! Please let me hear from you!


If you would like to read about my adventures last year in Iceland and Scandinavia, click here:


I have also posted my favorite photos from my 2007 African Safari. View them by clicking here:


The plan for this year is to fly from Atlanta, Georgia, USA to Frankfurt Germany and to go on to Prague from there. I plan to visit Prague, Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest, Vienna and Saltzburg. Depending on the time and money available at that point, I may spend some time in Munich and Bavaria before heading back to Frankfurt and the flight home a month later. If you have any favorites in these cities, or know of any other places I might enjoy visiting, please let me know!


I am travelling solo again this year, which is a wonderful testament to my family, which is helping make this all possible. Thanks guys!


I am on a tight budget this year, so I am attempting to do the trip on $75 a day or less, including accomodation. I did buy a Germany rail pass and an Eastern Europe rail pass before I left, so most of the train segments should be paid for. I plan to eat mostly from supermarkets and convenience stores along the way. I chose Eastern Europe this year because it is supposed to be inexpensive. I guess we'll see!


I will post updates from the road right here in this year's blog. I have also put my Twitter feed on this page, so you can see my last three posts from the road to keep up with the trip between blog postings. I hope to put pictures on the Twitter feed as well as GPS postings coordinated with Google Maps showing exactly where I am during the day. You can follow my last three Twitter posts here, or you can sign up for free on Twitter, follow me here http://twitter.com/sfoshee1, and get all of my posts. If you send me your email, I will put you on my list to email you when I have updated the blog.


Thank you very much for reading and following my adventures in Eastern Europe this year! I really hope to hear from you!

I'm linked up from Doc Thelma's House. Hopefully I'll be blogging from our trip to San Francisco June 6-14th.

I'm so jealous! At least I get to vicariously travel by reading your blog. Happy Trails!

Hey Scott, its Ben from Talinn last summer. Mike and Bethany just visited me in Norfolk last weekend, and we talked about meeting you and your trip this year. Fond memories, then they get fuzzy - they sold tasty beer at that beer garten. Enjoy Praha, wormwood drinks, and the search for Kafka.
