A Day in Kromeriz, Czech Republic

Spoiled for choice. If there is one thing we learned when driving in the Czech Republic, it’s that the country is so full of pretty towns it’s hard to decide what to see in a limited time. Ultimately, we decided to base our 3-week itinerary around the country’s UNESCO sites, which is how Kromeriz became …

One Day in Kilkenny, Ireland

What if you only had one day day in Kilkenny and a local offered to show you around? We had the unique opportunity to be guests of Fáilte Ireland and Kilkenny Tourism. The tourist bureaus showed us a few things to do in Kilkenny that we might not have tried otherwise, and we fit them …

Why You Should Spend a Day in Guimaraes, Portugal

Guimaraes. It rhymes with Gilgamesh, and to the Portuguese it’s just as historical. The city was founded in the 9th century, became the first capital of Portugal in the 12th century, and was even the birthplace of Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal. So we would spend a day in Guimaraes, our tour guide …

Is Blarney Castle Worth the Hype, or a Bit O’ Blarney Itself?

Kissing the Blarney Stone is one of those iconic things every visitor to Ireland is expected to do, and that is precisely why I didn’t want to do it. Legend has it that the kiss gives you a little bit of blarney and you’ll become a smooth talker. Yeah, right. Truth be told, we only …

Hike to the Largest Natural Arch in Europe – Czech!

Can you see a city in one day? We spent six weeks touring eight countries and, for the most part, we weren’t in the same place for more than a night or two. Crazy? Maybe, but we took advantage of an easy way to see a lot in a short time.

What to Do in Roseau, Dominica When You’re Stuck There for a Week

Few people would visit the Commonwealth of Dominica for business reasons. The small island is relatively untouched, with mostly waterfalls and national parks to attract nature lovers and hikers. Unfortunately, when negotiations require you to spend all of your time in Roseau, its tiny capital, you miss out on all of that. You do, however, …

Impressions of Curacao from a First-Time Visitor

Call us crazy, but whenever we visit a new place we always find ourselves asking, Could we live here? It’s fun, we think, to try to imagine life as a local, not a tourist, even if we might never actually do that. So, after a weekend in the country, here were our initial impressions of …
