The view from our apartment balcony, looking toward the Old Town of Dubrovnik.

Before I started writing my first book (available now!), I’d heard people say that writing a book is similar to giving birth. I thought, really? Isn't that a little over dramatic? Obviously due to a natural barrier, I haven’t given birth. (Not that I wouldn't have wanted the experience, but life is life.) But now [...]

Who knew my journey from Budapest to Subotica recently would prove to be such a learning experience? From the first lunge of the train, to Andreas storming through my cabin, it was an interesting ride to say the least. The trip was probably the most surreal three hours of my life.

But, taking the ride reminded me of a very powerful business and life lesson that I’d forgotten. When we bought our apartment in Budapest I really didn't think about having to obtain a visa. [...]
