Everything is on the Menu!

CZECH REPUBLIC | Wednesday, 31 Aug 2016 | Views [302]

We had ambitious plans for our last day in Europe. Tim said if you want it, lets do it; happy birthday!   We set out pretty early and Mom wanted to try a Trodnik, a Ukrainian pastry that made it's way to Prague and is pretty popular with ... Read more >

On the Road Again; Krakow to Prague

CZECH REPUBLIC | Tuesday, 30 Aug 2016 | Views [158]

Woke up early this morning as we had our bus/train combination to Prague leaving at 7:30. Our apartment owner came to see us out and we showed him the 2 or 3 deficiencies with the apartment; so he could make the awesome space perfect. After the short ... Read more >

Auschwitz Concentration Camp

POLAND | Monday, 29 Aug 2016 | Views [314]

We bought tickets to Auschwitz the day we arrived. During the busy summer months it is required to purchase a guided tour; versus walking through at your own pace. Sounded alright but it was a good thing we had 5 days because it was sold out until today.... Read more >


Soup Soup; Bowls of Soup

POLAND | Sunday, 28 Aug 2016 | Views [276]

We didn't plan a lot for the day; walking 15 – 20 Km a day is very draining.  So we got up and explored the local market where I bought a new shirt.  Tim and Dad were on the hunt for antiques; maybe something from the war.   The ... Read more >

A day at "Jew-rassic" Park

POLAND | Saturday, 27 Aug 2016 | Views [350]

Our hotel is located in the infamous Kazimierz district of Krakow. King Kazimierz invited persecuted Jews from other parts of central Europe to Poland and promised a tolerant cosmopolitan. Although still bound to many feudal restrictions (couldn’... Read more >

A World of Salt

POLAND | Friday, 26 Aug 2016 | Views [255]

Our adventure began with buying tram tickets to go to the Wieliczka Salt Mines.  We read about many ways it was possible to go to the mine, but the local tram/bus combo was quick, cheap and easy.  We bought 8 tickets at a machine close to the ... Read more >

From Hungary to Poland

POLAND | Thursday, 25 Aug 2016 | Views [256]

The train; the train. I'm unsure if I should be positive or negative about our train experience. Like I said, we were in different compartments; which would have made it marginally better. Positive: no wasted day for travel, kinda; and slightly cheaper ... Read more >


Night on a Train

HUNGARY | Wednesday, 24 Aug 2016 | Views [291]

On the move again, exciting but also a bit of stress; no problem.  We packed up and Tim made a 'last supper soup' for breakfast.  Although it sounds like crap (and Mom thought there was everything other than the kitchen sink) it was delicious.... Read more >

Focus on Danube

HUNGARY | Tuesday, 23 Aug 2016 | Views [321]

Today was our last full day in the city and we planned to make the most of it.  While we have been here 5 days already, there is a tone of things to do and no shortage of last minute good ideas from friends. We set out across the Elizabeth Bridge ... Read more >

Rainy Day

HUNGARY | Monday, 22 Aug 2016 | Views [180]

We knew for a few days that they were calling for a lot of rain today so we did not plan to do anything touristy; kinda. I thought it was a good idea to go shopping; needed a new pair of shoes after-all. Besides Tim thought there was a mall within a ... Read more >
