It gave me the opportunity to dig through my old photos, and highlight a few that I love, yet haven’t […]

Neuschwanstein Castle, Innsbruck, Lichtenstein and Luzern

We’ve had two more adventurous days!  We awoke yesterday to several inches of snow on the ground, and even more falling from the sky.  Though it made the driving slow, we easily made it to our first destination of the day – Neuschwanstein Castle.  Commissioned by King Ludwig II, the castle is perched high in […]

Salzburg and Munich

The last two days have been quite a whirlwind.  We awoke very early on Sunday morning and set out for the Mauthausen concentration camp.  Three years ago, Kendra and I visited Auschwitz-Birkenau, yet even having been to another concentration camp, I was still not prepared for the emotions I felt in Mauthausen.  It was almost […]

Valentine’s Day in Vienna

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Vienna, Austria – Day 1

Last night we arrived in Vienna at about 7 pm. As we were standing in line for a Bankomat in the train station in Vienna, we literally bumped into our roommate from Prague. Derek did not have a plan for a hostel, so we told him to follow us to our hostel where surely he […]

Traveling to Vienna

Today we were going to tour around Prague some more, but we decided  that we were just too tired.  Instead, we went to the train station at  about 10 and reserved a seat on a train to Vienna for early afternoon.  I  would love to say that we left and saw a few more sites […]

Some thoughts…

I’m on the train, watching beautiful little Czech towns pass by, and thought I’d reflect a bit on our trip… so, things I have learned on this trip: 1. There is such a thing as too much cheese 2. I prefer the small towns of Europe to the touristy big-cities 3. Kendra and I make […]
