Eastern Europe Trip, 1995
In the Spring of '95, once my teaching contract in Tashkent had ended, I embarked on a solo trip around Eastern Europe. I first flew from Tashkent to Moscow, where I simply changed planes for my direct flight to Helsinki, Finland, a city I had visited briefly (w/ others ESIers) before arriving in Uzbekistan in the late summer of '94. So, this Eastern Europe journey actually got started in Helsinki, a place I was a tad familiar with. I will write about these destinations in coming weeks.
Unless otherwise noted, travel between destinations was by train.
Tallinn, Estonia - arrived by hydrofoil
Belarus - passed through
Prague, Czech Republic - met up with my great-uncle
Budapest, Hungary - arrived by boat down Danube River
Slovakia - passed through
Prague, Czech Republic
