The train waits on the platform and I wait inside it. We've been warned that bad weather may throw us off, but I have some snacks and my fiance. I'm content. We're headed from Vienna to Budapest, another stop on the foreign-language tour. I've been sneezing and coughing and in love the entire way.
I'm a writer and storyteller in Berkeley, CA. If you're wondering where that is, follow the smell of patchouli and skunkweed. There you'll find me with my kickass husband, gorgeous little boy, and manic Lab-Australian Shepherd mix pups. I'm represented by Miriam Altshuler of DeFiore & Co., but of course, my views are my own.
