Technical difficulties, friends. It seems the consequence of sitting on blog posts for a month in draft form is that they publish on the date that draft begun, so (a) things may be a little out of order, and (b) if you happen to be one of the particularly lovely people who subscribes to these posts via email, you probably haven't gotten the past few. I think it's all figured out now, so here's a chronological recap from the past month:
(1) Oh, hey, in which I apologize for a long delay from writing and promise more soon.
(2) Milan, Verona, Venice, Rome (Days 10 - 17), in which Abbilyn and I see Italy (this has, oddly, posted itself before the last entry).
(3) Bled, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Split, Dubrovnik (Days 18 - 21), in which we change our plans and road trip through beautiful Croatia.
(6) Istanbul (Days 25 - 29), in which we explore Istanbul.
More coming soon on the remainder of Istanbul, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, (a little bit of) Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, (Hungary again,) and whatever else unfolds between now and then (likely more Austria, the Czech Republic, more Germany, and Scandinavia[!]).
