Seattle, Part 2

After a great first day exploring this fantastic city, I had another good night’s sleep under my belt and was ready to head out again on what was a clear and glorious day.

I had heard from a friend on Facebook that a trip to Bainbridge was very much worth it, so with no more convincing needed, I headed down to the waterfront and bought my ticket!

Anytime I get to be on the water is what I call a perfect day.

Sensational Seattle

After my visit back in Wisconsin, I decided to treat myself to a little “added” adventure, so I narrowed it down to Seattle, Washington.

Paul was still in Europe and I had a couple extra days left before heading back to work so I headed west on my first real solo trip. I was super excited. I had never really gone anywhere new by myself before, so this was going to be a first on many levels!

Marvelous Madison

We are now going to jump forward in time a bit to the summer of 2014. Paul was visiting family in Poland so I decided to take a trip back to see my family. I was born and raised in Chippewa Falls WI, so I spent some time with my mom and dad before making the trip to see my sister, who had just moved to Madison WI the year before.

Wondrous Warsaw

Now some of you might be wondering about the title names I give my posts. Is Krakow really captivating? Budapest… brilliant? Really? Well how about Perfectly Prague. How can Prague be perfect?

Easy!

The saying goes, “The beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. This was originally used by the author Margaret Wolfe Hungerford for her book ‘Molly Bawn’ in 1878. The exact origin of the phrase is unknown though, as different forms have been used since the 3rd century BC when it was used by the Greeks.

Captivating Krakow

After our long day at Auschwitz, we drove to Krakow Poland which took about an hour and it was time to unwind from what we had just experienced. It was time for some FOOD!

But, before we headed down to the old centre, we needed a place to stay. We drove around for just a little bit and found a hotel that had been converted from a college dormitory. I was a little skeptical at first, but it turned out to be a pretty great place! I told Paul that if we had to share a bathroom with anyone it was a no go! But they had rooms with private bathrooms so we decided to settle in! To this day we still tell stories of this place, it was great!

Regrets in Slovakia

Okay, so up next on our journey is the splendid country of Slovakia. After a great day in Budapest, we took to the streets again for a 2 hour ride to the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava. Now this was never an intended stop on our route, but we figured as long as we were seeing the capitals in each country we were in, we might as well hit another one on our way back to Poland.
