“I just finished reading The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova, which made me want to run out and book myself on the first flight to Eastern Europe – Bucharest, Romania, Sofia, Bulgaria, Istanbul, Turkey and many of the surrounding countries as well.
The book is the account of a girl’s search for Dracula, as she retraces the steps (and reads the letters of) her father and his mentor before him. It was fascinating, I only wished the book hadn’t ended!
I’m planning on a trip sometime next spring, but haven’t decided on a destination yet. But definitely considering Eastern Europe even more now.”
