Monday Košice, Tuesday Budapest, Wednesday Berlin, Thursday Sacramento. It may sound adventurous, it may even sound romantic but when I realized this is how my week would look, I just wanted a nap. Modern travel by train and airplane, as well as the wonders of a close together Europe make this trip very possible. However, it takes a toll on the mind and body to be in so many different situations, hearing and using multiple languages, interacting with people from various cultures and the stress and mental energy it takes to navigate multiple train stations, airports and taking care of other transportation needs.
For me this is the home stretch. Just the final few hours before making the trek to the airport and getting on a plane to bring me back to California. It’s been quite the month of travel. And now I am tasked with taking all the information i’ve compiled about different people and places and using it to make a decision about the future. I’m very thankful that I was able to put my feet on the ground, get my hands dirty and see the different cities and work options from a close-up and hopefully more realistic perspective.
At this point i’ve made no final decisions. I’m going to give myself some space, pray, have a few more conversations to fill in some gaps and see how my heart pulls me. It’s an exciting yet nerve-wracking time but I don’t think I would have it any other way.
