What It’s Like to Stay at a Portuguese Pousada

Bare and basic. Bed with sheets, pillow and blanket, maybe a place to hang clothes. Bare light bulbs in the ceiling. You will usually be living out of suitcase on the floor. That’s how one unfortunate man begins his description of a Brazilian pousada.

What to See in Olomouc

When we began planning our “grand tour around the Czech Republic,” Olomouc (oh-la-MOOTZ) almost didn’t make the list. Okay, its Holy Trinity Column is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but why drive into the middle of a city just to see it and leave? That sounded like a huge waste of time. Shows you what …

Why You Should Put Litomysl on Your Czech List

Litomysl is a small, quiet town with an almost untouched historical center that few people have heard of. What’s worse, even fewer visit it, even though it’s only a couple of hours away from Prague.

Sedlec Ossuary: Macabre Bone Church of Kutna Hora

While it may appear to be a rather unassuming town, Kutná Hora is a popular tourist destination, and its most sensational attraction is Sedlec Ossuary, the famous “bone church.” To be honest, we’re not fans of the ghoulish or macabre and usually avoid sensational spooky stuff, but in our opinion it would have been hard …

Eating at Restaurant L’Hort de Casa, Andorra

Instead of planning how we’ll spend each travel day, Dan and I prefer to head out with a general idea of where we want to go and stop when something catches our eye. It might be a world-class museum one day, other times it could be a fabulous view along the side of the road …

La Birreria in Andorra: A Beer Lover’s Heaven

When we discovered La Birreria in Andorra la Vella’s medieval center, it was quite a surprise. Tiny Andorra sits between two famous wine producing countries and its tax-free status makes wine incredibly cheap. Truth be told,because of the country’s size it hadn’t even occurred to us to look for a local beer during our visit.

Visiting Andorra la Vella’s Old Town – Worth It?

When we told people we were going to spend a few days visiting Andorra, we were met with a lot of blank looks. Andorra isn’t on most people’s radar. Actually, from our experience, most people don’t even know that it’s a country.
