What a day! Although our actual sightseeing today was confined to a relatively small number of things, we saw a lot, took some awesome pictures, and had a good, but long, day. So what did we do? We visited Linderhof Palace and Neuschwanstein Castle via a day trip we booked through Viator. I’ve used Viator […]

Another day of a LOT of walking (over nine miles, according to my Fitbit), but it was well worth it! We saw everything we wanted to (minus Nymphenburg Palace, which proved to be far enough away from everything else we saw today that we were just too tired to visit it at the end of […]

Yes, that’s right – we’re back in Germany! After a great few days in Prague, we moved on to Munich today. We had a wonderful time in Prague, but we were excited to come to Munich to experience this great city. We traveled via bus on DB Bahn (the German national rail company) and, although […]

Berlin is shaping up to be a great city to visit! While neither Scott nor I have gotten a “this feels like a place I could live” vibe (like the one I get in London, for example), we’re having a good time seeing all the sights. And the almost-perfect weather has been a bonus! Obviously […]

It felt like we packed quite a bit into our first full day in Berlin! Working from our list of things we wanted to do, we grouped together things that were in roughly similar geographic areas. Sounds pretty basic and some may argue unnecessary, but that basic planning makes it way easier for us to […]

I say a taste both because we didn’t do a whole lot in Berlin today and what we did do mostly involved eating. 🙂 The weather in Budapest turned rainy last night into this morning, so that timing worked out perfectly. The shuttle we took when we arrived also picked us up – very slick! […]

We finally booked a day trip! I know, I know – not a big accomplishment in the grand scheme of things, but we’ve been waffling on this for awhile now, so it was nice to get it taken care of. Because this year’s trip is shorter than last year’s (two weeks instead of three), we […]
