The Eiffel Tower, Paris, France

Farewell London, Bonjour Paris!

This morning we left our hotel before dawn and headed to St. Pancras  Station. Before we boarded the Eurostar train for Paris, we took the kids across the street to King’s Cross Station to visit Platform 9 and 3/4! I think I was just as excited as the kids to see this Harry Potter landmark. […]

Day Trip from London: Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Oxford

Today was a whirlwind day! We opted to do a tour with the Golden Tour Company in the UK to visit Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Oxford because it was fairly cheap, and included lunch. (These are important things to consider when traveling with your inner-city high school students!) We left the hotel at 7am and […]

London, Day 2: Windsor Castle, A Guided Tour, and the Tate Modern!

Kendra and I then headed back to the hostel at which we spent our first night in Dublin six weeks ago. It’s hard to believe how much we […]

Budapest, Hungary

We are currently sitting outside at a table complete with candlelight and beer. We just finished our first meal of Hungarian goulash, and Jen loved it. We are exhausted from our day of sightseeing and sun. The morning started with a quick subway ride to a more central location in Pest. We strolled the streets […]

Dublin – Day 2

Today was our first full day in Europe. We woke early to go to O’Connell Street to buy tickets for the “hop-on hop-off” bus tour. We were too early (a first for Jen) so Jen used her handy-dandy WiFi detector (thanks Boris!) and found wireless at a cute café on O’Connell Street. After some terrible […]
