Introduction to a “Spontaneity Trip” of a Lifetime
May 12, 2018
I have traveled probably 4-5 million miles on various airlines in this lifetime. But I have never undertaken a trip like this. I know its beginning and the end. But I have no idea what will happen in between.
It all started a few weeks away when I was invited by a business friend to attend a special ball in Moscow celebrating then 25th anniversary of his company. For reasons that will become clear as this trip unfolds, I decided that I must first travel to Belgrade, my native city. Then, depending on what happens this week in Serbia, I will decide when and where to go next.
So when people ask me “where are you going in Europe,” my truthful answer has been, “I really don’t know” (except for Belgrade). All I can say is that Russia, Austria and Germany will be in play. And maybe some other countries.
So stand by to see how this Spontaneity Trip unfolds.
