Update: Hi! I haven't done a newsletter in a while and some of our readers are getting upset about it. For those unfamiliar with our newsletters: we try to make newsletter a little less formal than regular blog posts and

It's been a busy time. We left Budapest almost 3 weeks ago for Brasov, Romania. It's honestly been a bit of a culture shock coming to Romania. How to put it nicely? We miss Budapest. Our feelings haven't been helped by the weather - we can count 4 days of sunshine in the last 18 days or so.
The original idea had been to have stops in Romania and Bulgaria before going on to Turkey sometime in mid-November. But with all that's gone on in recent months we've gone back and forth on the idea of going to Turkey at all.

I'll be catching up on my posts on Brasov in the coming week.
