Plot twist: instead of going to Budapest, Prague, and Vienna, I spent those those two weeks in February going to several doctor appointments, having surgery, and recovering in the hospital. Instead of exploring Eastern Europe by myself and following my dreams, I spent a week in the hospital and recovering from a large, malignant ovarian tumor. I’ll spare you the rest of the gory details.
I am happy to report that I am currently cancer free, but I have to go to the doctor every three months for the next three to five years. My aunt told me that I can’t go out of the country anymore because every time I try, someone gets diagnosed with cancer. That, of course, made me want to travel even more. I came home from the hospital infected with a severe case of the travel bug.
This experience may have limited my freedom to an extent, but I will continue to travel as much as I can.

Rest assured, Bloggerverse, I intend to continue my pursuit of adventure and exploration and to remain positive. Let’s keep things interesting.
