The long conversation with Sean calling from Serbia was pleasant. We planned to pick him up at Hungary’s capital Budapest on Monday 18 June, then travel together through several countries and he is flying out from Berlin. Alex then spent nearly an hour calculating how much we will be spending. It is roughly S$5000 for two weeks for both of us. My goodness! So, the next question is, should we go for it or not. After another hour painful decision making, yes! We go for it.

Europe in Euro is shockingly expansive! We now hope Alex’s job in her old company works out so that we can top up some Euro in our travelling bank account…
