No reservations, no money, no problem!
Feeling directionless and depressed after leaving the blissful cocoon of college, Rebecca Patrick was finding herself at a loss in the “real world.” Her friends had scattered to the winds, jobs were hard to come by in her mountain town, and her difficult relationship with her boyfriend was disillusioning. Spending way too much time watching trashy television and scrolling through strangers’ travelogues on the internet, she was losing herself to equal amounts of depression and anger.
That’s when her mother stepped in. At the end of her rope, and figuring distance was the best medicine, she decided to "fix" it all by buying Rebecca a discount plane ticket and sending her off to Eastern Europe. In January. No reservations, no maps, no guide books, no travel plans.
Following her gut, her love of crepes, and travelers’ advice, Rebecca started in the Czech Republic and followed a trail to post-war Bosnia, visiting Hungary, Slovenia, and Croatia enroute. Along the way she was robbed by shady train conductors in Hungary, attacked by gypsies, underground in a former war tunnel in Bosnia, an extra in a Hollywood movie, and found herself falling in love with not one but two Brits.
This is a trip she’ll never forget.
