Wanderings of a GlobeTrotter in Europe

After having discovered the site of Céline Globetrekkeuse, it is paid to the game to make us discover a course of days in Eastern Europe...
After long months ago around the world, from the steppes of Patagonia to the high plateaus of the Himalayas, Corsican roads trails Inca I decided to resume the paths, shod this time in answering a question by a friend: "always you partes at the other end of the world. Do you know appreciate less exotic destinations? »
Curious to find the answer to this mystery, I file at the SNCF desk get a Pass InterRail... and go for a expedition of 20 days in several European cities.
I annoy me? Will I turn back after a few days and run away to a distant destination? I know appreciate the high places of my story? Were can I find the authenticity, wonder, surprise, essential to the success of my trips?
Despite my apprehensions and the absence of marked trails on my journey, I must confess that this journey was able to surprise me and charmed me. No, Europe, our good old continent, is not boring or devoid of mystery and unusual places for the one who takes the trouble to get lost and to look beyond the obvious.
