A Lisbon Funicular (Street Car)

Lisbon

After a quick jaunt to Dublin, it was back to Lisbon, this time to explore the city with a partner in crime. Upon arrival in Lisbon we were greeted with a beautiful, warm sunny day. Quite the opposite from what we experienced 24 hours earlier. We […]

Pint of Guinness from Guinness factory in Dublin

Oh Goodness, my Guinness

Upon finishing a thrilling ride on the Autobahn, I made my way on to Lisbon for a night via Frankfurt before heading to Dublin for the weekend. This was the second-to-last business class flight on my RTW trip, and boy was it shitty. Lufthansa’s European business class […]

The town of Beinstein, Germany

Driving the Autobahn to Beinstein

After a few days in Prague I had to make my way to Frankfurt to complete my RTW leg of Frankfurt to Lisbon. I took an uncomfortably long overnight bus ride from Prague to Frankfurt. What I’ve learned in my travels is that, no matter how […]

Franz Kafka Statues outside of the Kafka museum in Prague

Prague

Finishing up my Eastern European tour, I had 4 days to spend over Easter weekend in Prague. This may have not have been the best time to visit, as I was later told that it is the busiest weekend of the year in Prague. Therefore […]

Wiener Schnitzel in Vienna

Vienna

Following a wonderful few days in Budapest, I left the city on a sour note. For those that don’t know how a lot of european public transport works, you purchase a ticket, but it doesn’t become valid until you stick it in a little box that […]

Lion on chain bridge in Budapest

Budapest

Upon landing in Budapest late at night, weary from a long day of traveling, and not sleeping well, the first thing I did upon arriving in Budapest after checking in? I of course went to the bar! I really had no expectations for Budapest. Some […]

Elizabeth Tower

London

With Turkey in the rearview mirror I set course for London, the plan here was to meet up with Seb once again since he had a work engagement at Heathrow for the weekend, so the original plan was for me to fly to London via Frankfurt, […]

Pamukkale Calcium Carbonite formation

Pamukkale and Ephesus

Following a spur of the moment purchase to flee Cappadocia, Ty and myself split from the pack and made our way to Ephesus, by the way of the Izmir airport. It was a one hour flight and ~$75 to buy a ticket the day before. […]

Hot Air Balloon in Cappadocia, Turkey

Cappadocia

An early AM departure out of Istanbul meant that our group of six had a full day to explore Cappadocia, specifically the town of Goreme, which is roughly an hour drive from the Kayseri airport. The main draw of this area is the landscape specifically […]

Mid-air jumping picture on a roof in Istanbul

Istanbul

With Germany out-of-the-way, it was off to Turkey, with little to no itinerary, except for the fact that I knew I had to come in and out of Istanbul. I arrived late in the evening and hit the sack immediately. Upon waking up, I was […]

Arbeit Macht Frei at Dachau

Dachau Concentration Camp

To round-up the first leg of my Germany travels I wanted to make sure I got to spend a few hours at a concentration camp, no matter how sobering of an experience it may be. Seb rented a car and we made our way to Dachau, which is […]

Roast Pig Knuckle for breakfast

Munich

Continuing our German tour we made our way to Munich for a couple of days. This time we had accommodation with Seb’s girlfriend’s sister, who was nice enough to put us up for free! Munich is the polar opposite of Berlin. It’s a very old, […]

My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love

Berlin? Berlin!

With an early AM arrival in Berlin we had a full 2 days to explore the city. This was a tourist weekend for Seb as well, since most of his time spent in Berlin had been for business. Luckily, one of his friends was out-of-town […]

Travel tribulations: Get me to Europe!

After Cape Town I had a pretty shitty series of events that transpired on finding my way to Frankfurt. Naturally, some things are bound to go wrong in a 6 month trip, so this is me bitching for the sake of bitching. First, I had […]
