Study Abroad Diaries 4: April, Part I (Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna)

April was a busy month for me. In the interest of time, I’m going to focus on the two-ish weeks in the middle of April where I was traveling around Eastern Europe with a friend, because not much happened outside of that. Strap yourselves in, because this is a long one.
