Berlin City Break

Our Christmas present to each other was a quick getaway to Berlin. We were drawn by the Christmas Markets, and the price was right, so off we went! Germany goes all out for Christmas, and we were excited to see for ourselves if German Christmas Markets are in fact the best. I think I’m still … More Berlin City Break

Bath

We had a bank holiday weekend at the end of August, and I was just not prepared for summer fun to end, so… We went to Bath for the day and spent the night in London. Bath was lovely, and we had a nice wander around, but I must say my favorite part of the day … More Bath

Austria

On the drive from Prague to Austria, lines from Billy Joel’s “Vienna” kept playing through my head: Slow down, you crazy child You’re so ambitious for a juvenile But then if you’re so smart, then tell me Why are you still so afraid? Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about? You’d better cool it off before you … More Austria

Prague

July was pretty epic guys. After my family visited, we all traveled to Prague and Vienna together. So much fun packed into one month, and now I’m going through withdrawals… Andrew and I went to Budapest last year, and ever since we’ve been itching to go to Prague and Vienna. They were important cities in the Habsburg … More Prague

A Day In London

Once a month or so, Andrew and I like to go to London for the day and get lost. We’re only 20-30 minutes away by train, but we’re often so tired by the weekend that we choose to stay home (and save money). I catch up on boring, but necessary, things like laundry -an all day … More A Day In London

10 Days In Italy

Rome / Tivoli / Assisi / Florence Probably the best thing about working in the UK is the amount of required holiday for employees. In the US, I was content with 10 vacation days a year, but now I get 25 -not including bank holidays!!! As I typed the title of this post, I was reminded of how … More 10 Days In Italy

Discovering Budapest

This post is better late than never! To celebrate Thanksgiving, Andrew and I took two days of holiday and decided to spend them in Budapest. Budapest is perfect for those with limited time and money (us). We bought 72-hour travel cards that gave us free access to public transport, walking tours, and most of the … More Discovering Budapest

Life Lately

When we told people we were moving to the UK, I think most of them assumed we’d start travelling right away, and spend all of our time going to new places. By now we should have seen 80% of Europe, at LEAST! Now, you might be wondering what gave me that impression. I submit to … More Life Lately
