Budapest. A Week with Friends. 

Budapest would probably not have made the list original list, but we could not come to Europe and not visit our friends! Spending a week in the city, living as ex-pats instead of tourists, was an eye-opening experience. We still did all of the touristy bits, like sight seeing and exploring the city, but weContinue reading “Budapest. A Week with Friends. “

The Ruins of Delphi

After a leisurely few days in Nafpaktos, the wanderlust kicked back into high gear. It was time to explore. We rented a car, consulted a map, and headed down the open road. We never planned on driving in Europe, since the street signs are different and there is no wifi for Google Maps, but itContinue reading “The Ruins of Delphi”

A Hidden Treasure

After a few days in Nafpaktos, Greece, I am surprised that this place is not crawling with tourist 12 months out of the year.

I downloaded Earworms in Mandarin a few years ago when we hosted a few schoolsContinue reading “Coffee is a MUST”

Every Time We Book

Everytime we book a new location our excitement builds. We are nearing the end of our booking stage which is wonderful and saddening because I know it means we will eventually have to leave the fairytale.  Just to give you an idea of how this started… we started off trying to plan a specific routeContinue reading “Every Time We Book”
