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!

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!

Europe, 2011

 

So way back in May of 2011, we were invited to the wedding of Paul’s cousin back in his hometown of Lomza, Poland. With a population of around 65,000 people, it’s a little smaller than where I grew up in the Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire area of WI. Being this was my first time out of the country on a different continent, needless to say I was quite excited about what I was going to experience! More importantly I was finally going to see where my other half grew up and started his life.
