The Day Venice Kicked Our Asses

Venice was eventful if nothing else. I had been to Venice before, so this was one place where I kind of knew what to expect. Having been to the UK, the Netherlands, and Germany, I now realized that Italy is not one of my favorite European destinations. It's hot, touristy, and you always have to… Continue reading The Day Venice Kicked Our Asses

The Day We Ate in Three Countries

Alright, I'm typing this on my phone, because we have no time on the bus today, and therefore need to improvise a bit. Breakfast was good at the German hotel. They had lots of bread goods, German sausages, prosciutto and cheese, cereal, and other stuff. The croissant I grabbed at the last minute was one… Continue reading The Day We Ate in Three Countries

The Day I Almost Died on A Bike

I did not spend enough time in Germany. I mean, granted I haven't spent enough time in any of the places I’ve been, but there’s something about Germany that makes me wish I could have stayed much longer. We started off with breakfast at our little hotel in St. Goar. Breakfast there was scant. They… Continue reading The Day I Almost Died on A Bike

My roomies and I dragged our lazy selves out of bed after a fun night in Amsterdam and we treated ourselves to a… Continue reading The Day We Got Rowdy After Wine Tasting

The Day I Found Out I Was Crazy

Sitting down to write this entry, I can't believe how much stuff we crammed into this single day. We began by packing up our stuff and making our way to the courtyard of our hotel. It’s there we met our tour group: 35 people, expecting to meet 7 more in Amsterdam. We were all kind… Continue reading The Day I Found Out I Was Crazy

The Day it Rained, Literally and Figuratively

We began London Day 2 with coffees and pastries at Café Nero, which appeared to be like a European Starbucks. From there we headed to Russell Square station, which at this point began to feel like home. Our first goal of the day was to head to Westminster Abbey, because we knew it closed early… Continue reading The Day it Rained, Literally and Figuratively

The Day We Were Super Touristy

Greetings friends, family, creepers, and anyone else who has stumbled upon this blog. It's time for another rendition of Christina’s globetrotting adventures! This is my first trip by myself. Nobody to help me out. Solo. Well except for my friend, Drew, but he’s no help. (Just kidding, Drew, you’ve already at least helped me navigate… Continue reading The Day We Were Super Touristy
