Adios Spain, Bonjour France!

Today began with a 6:30am wakeup call. Everyone looked tired as we ate the same breakfast as yesterday. At 8am, we boarded the bus and left Barcelona, headed for France! Though the majority of the day was spent travelling on the bus, we did have the opportunity for some sightseeing. Our first stop was the […]

Kendra, Jenn and I also had café con leches to help get our gears moving. Our first activity of the day was a bus tour of Barcelona, led by a local guide, Ellie. […]

Holy Toledo!

Today was another phenomenal day.  We woke up early and after a tasty European breakfast of fresh croissants, crusty rolls, juice, and coffee, we headed out for a bus tour of Madrid. The architecture continues to impress us all! Our first stop was a park dedicated to the work of de Cervantes’ Don Quixote. Until […]

Kendra and I are down in South Carolina for a few days over our Christmas break. Overall, good times! Today we visited her Omi in little Due West. On the way home, Boris took us to a local eatery, Grits and Groceries, in Belton, South Carolina. I loved it! Despite being in the middle of […]

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

The Search for the Perfect Clams

Boris and Jane made it up to us yesterday! We are getting ready for a fun trip to Canada. Sadly enough, I have never actually been to Canada despite its proximity for my entire 31 years. Heck, I have been to Niagara Falls three times and I still haven’t made it to the other side […]

The Baths in Budapest

Today was a wonderful, relaxing day. After sleeping in until 9:30am, we made our way to the Buda side of town, stopping briefly for coffee, cappuccino, and croissants. It is said that most everyone in Budapest speaks some English, and this was more than emphasized by the young woman at the pastry shop whose grasp […]
