Another trip!

Bestie/cousin T and I have had on our respective bucket lists a mother-daughter trip and we’re finally doing it! Since both our mamas are extensive travellers, we tried to pick places no one has been to (or at least didn’t visit extensively). The winning destinations: Hungary, Romania and Malta.

Seriously – they’ve been everywhere else. Every time I’ve told someone about this trip, the usual response is “why there?” This is why. Also – they look awesome.

Hungary – 5 days in Budapest, but we are also planning to rent a car and head out of town. My personal “musts” are a city tour and the Szechenyi thermal baths.
Romania – 10 days total…about half in Bucharest and the rest touring about the countryside. T is looking forward to the Painted Monasteries in Bucovina region and I am pumped for the Carpathian mountains and castles.
Malta – 5 days. We’ll be based in Valletta and will be checking out the best the island has to offer. Really everything interests me here. History, temples, tombs, nature…all of it.
