Happy Halloween everyone! Hope everyone at home and all my readers have come up with some creative and fun costumes or at least get to see some while they are giving out candy!  I have been on the mend for the last couple days from something similar to strep throat and am still on antibiotics…… Continue reading A bit of Budapest, a bit of Berlin – Day 61

Budapest – Day 57

Last night after having finished 40 minutes of beautiful soothing sounds, stretching and yoga, I went to get ready for bed. My neck was sore pre-yoga but I hoped the stretching would help that out. Unfortunately when I went to brush my teeth I opened my mouth in the mirror to discover the back of…… Continue reading Budapest – Day 57

The hills are alive with the sound of rain – Salzburg, Day 49

Our first night here in Salzburg was pretty relaxing – Rach and I went for a nice long dinner and had a chance to try goulash from an authentic beerhouse down the street from us.

Thanksgiving without Turkey – Day 39

What a wonderfully crazy last few days.  Day 34, Rachel and I explored another hike in the Zermatt mountains called the 5 lakes. We got lost – surprising – and only ended up seeing 4 of the 5 lakes but they were really cool!

Miss Swiss – Day 33

We were warned two things about Switzerland.. 1. It is very expensive and 2. You will fall in love. Both are correct.  We rolled into Zermatt Switzerland, home of the Matterhorn (otherwise known as the mountain featured on the Toberlone candy bar – readers, I hope you know your chocolate). Coming from La Spezia we…… Continue reading Miss Swiss – Day 33
