This post is about a short walk within Budapest. I have decided to rent an apartment for a few months and try to get better with PT.

I left the hospital after about a week. The doctors were still talking about surgery, the physical therapist still didn’t want to hear anything of it, and I was still confused.

What was I supposed to do?


I decided to give physical therapy a chance. This meant that I would have to stay in Budapest for a lot longer than I had initially planned – not weeks but months. But how?

My airbnb was too expensive to stay long term, and it was booked anyway. Luckily, I had a friend in the city. Zilin had taken care of me while I was in the hospital, bringing me meals and some of my items, and she knew someone who was renting out apartments.

I looked at exactly one studio apartment in the center, and when it turned out that there was a garage space for the Caboose and a big screen TV, I signed a contract until the end of the year.

the walk

We started walking at around noon. Zilin had come to support me, pulling the Caboose while I was limping along next to her. It was only a short distance – one of the shortest walking days on The Longest Way for sure – but to me it felt a bit overwhelming anyway.

And so, because my new physical therapist had made me promise to be extra careful, we took a break in the middle of our walk, and I lay down on a park bench, trying to blend in with the pigeons and the foliage.

An hour later we had arrived at the apartment, and thus I had gone from being one who walks to being one who rents.

    Looks like you’ve got yourself a nice little space you rented.
    Rest well, get the therapy. Hopefully you can ease into walking to Vienna.
    Any way you can make the caboose lighter, easier to pull?
