HOPE travels

Night Before Takeoff

USA | Sunday, 22 August 2010 | Views [307] | Comments [4]

I am leaving tomorrow for my big trip!  I am so excited for the unknown and a tad apprehensive for the unknown.  I am just ready to be there already!  Aaaahhhhhh!!!!! 


So, tomorrow I leave STL at 13:40 and arrive at O'Hare.  After I make my way to the international part of the airport I leave at 18:15.  I then arrive in Dublin, Ireland at 7:15. I have an eight hour layover so... hello Dublin pubs ;-)  I leave Dublin around 15:00 and arrive in Budapest, Hungary at 20:00.  I will be staying on a couch owned by a woman named Veronika... thats all I have so far




Hope, are you doing this all by yourself? What made you decide to do this? How did you plan it? Hope you have lots of fun and stat safe! :)

Hi Hope! I don't know what to say. It is Thursday, August 26th around 11:12 a.m. I am working and I am wondering about you and your adventure. I have not figured out our time difference but I bet it is dark there at this moment. May you find lots of sofas to sleep on and many nice people. Love you a lot. - dad

Nice blog post, you sofa surfer! So are stuck in Budapest or are you going to Prague?
Say hi to Hans and Dieter in the hostel (they will be playing techno something).
We are fine, my mom actually called me on my cell phone at lunch to see how you were doing.... I will have to print your blog and take it over to her! Love you, Dad.
