Prague

Prague

Jizerské Pekárny (★★) If you’ve got a list of traditional Czech baked goodies to try, this bakery is the place to try them. No frills spot with tasty and reasonably priced bites. Lokál Dlouhááá (★) Very traditional Czech comfort food, a friend said the beef […]

Krakow

Krakow

Krakow is so surprisingly awesome. It’s a clean and small historical town with modern amenities and old school charm. It’s probably underrated but we loved it for that. Its very walkable, but if you get tired there’s a tram that’s easy to hop on and […]

Awfully Cool Amsterdam

Awfully Cool Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s reputation precedes it.  It’s a beautiful city and incredibly vibrant, but because we visited during poor weather (scorching hot) and peak tourist season (a summer weekend), we didn’t enjoy it to its fullest. Amsterdam’s metro ticket machines are a bit antiquated, so try to be […]

Côte d’Azur sounds so much sexier than Southern France

Côte d’Azur sounds so much sexier than Southern France

Heck, even the French Riviera and South of France has a nice ring to it.  We should really learn from the French on how to name things.  Also, technically this region is “Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur”, of which we saw a lot of.  So below are the […]

Valencia

Valencia

Valencia We really enjoyed Valencia. It was the perfect blend of a big enough city where there’s a ton of things to see and do but not so big that it felt overrun with tourists. Our Airbnb was great – probably the most organized host […]

Perfectly Porto

Perfectly Porto

  After many weeks on the road stopping a few days in each location, we wanted to find a place to stay put for a bit, take it slow and recharge. Y had heard great things about Porto so we decided to go. Even though […]

Biking Around the Beauty of Bordeaux

Biking Around the Beauty of Bordeaux

Watching the World Cup Winners #allezlesbleus We already knew finding a seat to watch the 2018 World Cup would be hard.  We had experienced increasing difficulty in Nice for the semis and Marseilles for the quarters, and Portugal and Spain for the groups.  We noticed […]

Livin’ la vida Lisbon

Livin’ la vida Lisbon

Lisboa is super colorful and cute, reminds us a bit of San Francisco with the hills, cable cars, and oh yeah, the “golden gate bridge.”  We loved the laidback vibes and excellent food.  Everyone, even the visitors, were friendly.. we chatted with Barcelonans and Americans […]

Rome & a Trip to Tivoli

Rome & a Trip to Tivoli

Rome was our last stop in Italy. To be honest neither of us had very high expectations for Rome. We’d both been before. It’s hot. It’s crowded and you’re always on high alert for pickpockets, bad restaurants, and tourist traps. But we came to meet friends […]
