My last week of traveling
Friday 30th September
My two months of adventures have come to their end and this is my last post. I’ve really had a great time. The final week was full of traveling, and perhaps the riches in experiences of all. I hitch-hiked from the Piatra Craiului to the border with Serbia, found a way to get to a Czech village of Svatá Helena where I visited my countrymen, and then, in the middle of nowhere, stopped someone sent by angels who brought me to Belgrade. Through Novi Sad and Subotica I went to Hungary, and after one day visit to Szeged spent a few days in my beloved Budapest. Stopping by Győr and Bratislava, psyched and full of experiences and great memories, I returned back to Czechia. I’m going to do it soon again!
Helping the family in the Piatra Craiului again
Tuesday 20th September
My volunteering stay in the Piatra Craiului is over. Today is my last day here, now I have ahead only final 10 days of traveling. Tomorrow I’m heading south to Drobeta-Turnu Severin, Orșova, and along the border with Serbia I will try to get to the Czech village of Sfânta Elena (Svatá Helena), where I want to spend one night. Afterwards, I’m going to finish my two months of wandering by crossing the border to Serbia, visiting Belgrade, Novi Sad and Szeged, spending a few days in my beloved Budapest, and finally through Győr and Bratislava come back to the Czech Republic.
Week 6: Spontaneous trips are best – 2.000 km in one week
Wednesday 13 September
Since I finished the meditation course earlier than planned, I sort of found myself on the street for a while, and had to quickly come up with a contingency plan. The past week has really been very tiring and I feel I’ve had enough of traveling for now. I have many, many crazy stories to share, nevertheless, now I’m happy to be back in the Piatra Craiului and stay again in one place for some time.
Week 5: Valuable Experience from the Vipassana Meditation Center
Wednesday 6 September
On Thursday I said I would be offline and disconnected from the world for 11mo days so how come I’m posting this now? Well, it’s true…I should be meditating in the mountains right now…but in fact, I did not complete the course. Yes. I failed. Being ten days just with myself is even more challenging than I thought. On the other hand, I don’t feel like a loser. I don’t really feel too bad about it, I don’t feel like I gave up. It was still very valuable experience and I don’t regret it at all!
