The one thing I really want to know about is visiting Auschwitz. It seems in high season you have to have a guided tour. Do you have any experience with these? How difficult are they to book? I don't know exactly when I will be in Krakow so I don't want to book yet. Other than that, I'm just trying to get a feel for culture from the places I visit. If you have any advice I would greatly appreciate anything you have to offer. My plan is to do a little research for each City and find a thing or two I want to do but also spend a day walking around. My parents always had me go into churches too, so whenever I see one I tend to go in. If you know of any impressive churches I should be sure to visit on one of my tour days, I'd love to hear some.

Thanks Devac!

Thanks for the incredible response! It is my first time but I still want to get a feel for the Balkans and it feels as though Croatia is westernizing rapidly. Do you think Budapest to Zagreb to Sarajevo to Belgrade to Skopje would be a good route? Last night I spent four hours procrastinating and read up on the history of the Yugoslav Wars, something not at all taught in US public high schools. There is a lot of really interesting stuff so I think it might be cool to go see some of the places that played central roles in the wars. Plus I got to learn about the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia naming dispute. What a fascinating political battle going on.

I'll definitely take Slovenia into consideration. It all depends on time. I'm typing this on my phone but I have a layout of approximate times in cities and travel times. Adding in city might be difficult. Though as I mentioned it is my first time so I might find I have more than enough time and I might be overestimating my time in cities.

Do you have any good resources for how long to spend in a city? I found plenty of estimates for my popular cities but from Wroclaw to Thessaloniki, the only city I can find any information about trip length is Budapest. For the most part I have 2-3 days each.

Drinking and getting puked on is not at all my goal. My goal for this trip is to get a taste of other cultures. When my parents brought me abroad as a kid, we'd always get lost the first day and eat somewhere in some alley. Get some real good local food. One of my fears is that all the people around me will be doing a trip like I am for cheap alcohol. Any advice on avoiding crowds and young partiers? I'm more worried about them coming back drunk and waking me up than avoiding them in the city though.

Whoops, it's a stop between Bratislava and Bucharest. Too many "B" cities to keep track of. I'll definitely look into festivals, I didn't even think about that. Thanks!

I just got an email from a tattoo artist saying the day I want is still available! I think I'm going to do it. I'm think I'm going to get a stained glass feather.

I'm wasting away again

It has been too long Hubski. I hope y'all have been doing well.

My life has been a fucking roller coaster this past week. Sharp drop on Thursday, low point Monday, working back up now. Thursday's event is irrelevant. Monday, a few old, deep wounds got reopened. I had to for my own mental sanity cut someone I care about out of my life. That shit sucks. It's never fun to go through but it's something I had to do. Maybe I can let them back in one day. But I did notice a quick improvement in my mood as soon as I did. It's not something I should be dwelling on but I can't help it. It hurts and I haven't hurt like this in a while. I'm just hoping in a few days or weeks I'll be happy agian.

I declared a major - public health. kleinbl00 and I were talking about that a long time ago on IRC. It's a really cool subject with a lot of interesting stuff going on. I'm really liking the idea of epidemiology but not the math portion of the class.

Someone covered my door handle in lube a few months ago. College kids are dicks.

Why do I like this monologue? No reason.

1. What happens to the stem cells should Forever Labs go bankrupt?

2. What happens to the stem cells should I die in a fiery car accident in fifteen years before I use them?

3. Do Hubski users get a discount?

Thanks, and this seems like a really cool idea!
