Heh, mostly Eastern Europe (which has long fascinated me, largely thanks to Eastern European films). I spent five weeks there total and visited Switzerland (Zürich and Le Locle, near the French border), Germany (Berlin and Munich, for Oktoberfest), Czech Republic (Prague and Kutná Hora), Poland (Warsaw and Krakow), Slovakia (Banská Štiavnica and Bratislava), Hungary (Budapest), and Austria (Vienna and Innsbruck).
