New Europe was very much a people-focussed journey. Fascinating to hear the tales, good and bad, of those so recently freed from Communism. So many countries in such a small area and all different and distinctive. Cappadocia in Turkey wins the prize for the best landscape, but there are some dark undertones of the old Europe, like Auschwitz, and Hitler’s holiday camp on Rugen Island. Thanks to Russian lady in Estonia, I now know what it’s like to have leech treatment. Oww!
