Sometimes I wish this whole year was one big vacation. We would be able to see and experience everything we wanted, and could spend days or weeks in particularly fascinating places. Alas, we’re not on perpetual holiday. But when we do get a few days off, we try to pack in as much fun and […]
Our weekend getaway to Prague was certainly a whirlwind of activity and adventure. If you didn’t read about the sometimes hilarious, sometimes painful trials and tribulations we endured, check out that story here. But now for the good stuff, the highlights, the other bits that helped make this a weekend we’ll not soon forget.
Sometimes trips don’t go as planned. Trains get canceled and delayed, weather fails to cooperate, and accidents necessitate surprise trips to the emergency room. Despite these extra little adventures, you can still enjoy a fun-filled, action-packed escape just about anywhere. Last weekend, we tested this theory on our getaway to Prague.
Joe and I love food festivals. Whenever an opportunity arises to sample many different types of cuisine, we’re ON IT. Fortunately, we’ve encountered a number of delicious events celebrating food on this adventure. The latest culinary journey took us to southeastern Berlin where we descended upon the European Street Food Awards Finals. We were certainly […]
If you love beer and aren’t opposed to travel, chances are you’ve considered attending Germany’s famous Oktoberfest celebrations. Many enthusiasts head straight for Munich’s official Oktoberfest, which welcomes around 6 million people each year. While there’s nothing like chugging steins of Hofbrau with millions of your new closest friends, there are other options.
We enjoyed three, perfect days on the island of Hvar, and I wanted to share the highlights. The order of operations isn’t important here, but I highly recommend taking full advantage of this beautiful place. We didn’t get around to wine tasting, so throw that in there, too, if you can. Read on and start […]
I typically write a retrospective post when we’re leaving a country. But this time, I’m writing it as we leave our primary city. By the time we do actually leave Croatia, we will have spent almost half our time in the southern part of the country. And so far, we’ve found the north and south […]
Joe and I really enjoy sampling local wines wherever we go. When you visit a winery, you learn so much about the history of the place. You get a better feel for the people, their stories, and how they live their lives. When I Googled “wine in Croatia,” I was amazed at the results. One […]
Many visitors come to Romania and make a bee-line for Transylvania, the region that houses the famous castle associated with Vlad the Impaler. You might know him as Dracula. We are going to visit the castles, but we also wanted to explore other regions of the country. After several locals recommended the Danube Delta and […]
Traveling in a new country is always an adventure: you must figure out the bus schedule (and if the buses adhere to a schedule), judge the sketchiness of local taxi drivers, and engage in a great deal of patient creativity when things don’t go your way. Our trip to the Danube River Delta, in the […]
You’ve read about our adventures to Porto and Ibiza, the gastronomic delights we’ve enjoyed, hikes we’ve taken up steep, rocky hills, and the awe inspired within us while gazing at elaborately decorated architecture – the highlights that make a good story. Perhaps some of you are wondering, however, what we actually do all day every day over […]
