What a Trip…

So this will be a very quick post, as I just wanted to make sure you all know that I didn’t forget about you! We are now back home from our amazing trip and slowly but surly getting back into the swing of things. This time around the time change didn’t hurt us as bad as it usually does, which is great, but the cold and flu bug decided to visit me instead. I never get sick, but this was a doozy.

So now that normal life has found us again, I will have some time to start sorting through the thousands of pictures we took and get my things in order for my next post! Until then, I just wanted to share a handful of my favorite photos (so far) with you and hope you come back to see some more later!

Alright everyone, tomorrow at this time we will be in the air and on our way to our first stop, Boston MA. I have been to Boston a few times but this will be Paul’s first. We have a good amount of time to get out and walk around, as we are there for one overnight with plenty of extra time to explore!

Exceptional England

I’m going to begin this post with a little story…

I have long been fascinated with everything England, largely due to Queen Elizabeth I, Princess Diana and the Royal Family. And now that it’s 2012, my current love affair with this iconic nation only grew, along with countless others because of the beautiful Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton. With the Royal Wedding a year earlier, the excitement of it all was sure to still be in the air, and it was!

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.

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!

Brilliant Budapest…

We arrived in the grand city of Budapest last at night, so first things first, it was time to get a room. Now not doing my research like I normally do when visiting places like this, I was finding it odd that everywhere we were looking only had the “Buda” name attached to it… Weren’t we in Buda”pest”? Ahhhh! The answer to my question was about to be told to us as soon as we sat down to dinner! Here is a quick look across the street from our home for the night!
