I spent 12 days city/friend-hopping across Europe – solo-travel is exhausting (and sometimes terrifying ), but I wouldn’t have traded the experience for the world. It was surreal to meet up with so many friends from so many different parts of my life in so many different places. Meeting new places is also a lot like meeting new people! Itinerary: Berlin –> Glasgow/Edinburgh –> Barcelona –> Geneva –> back home to Budapest.
