Cue Willie Nelson, we're headed out on another adventure in a few days, this time to central and eastern Europe. Specifically, we start in Vienna and then go by train to Budapest for a few days. Then, we climb aboard the Danube Express for 4 days and 3 nights through the Carpathians to Istanbul. The company call the route "The Transylvanian East." Doesn't that sound like an adventure?
Barring an encounter with Vlad the Impaler (we will be visiting the village that he reportedly called home), we plan on having a great time exploring a part of Europe that we hadn't really planned on seeing until we took the Orient Express and read about one of their trips that goes to Istanbul. Voila! An adventure was born!
