In Pictures: EuroPride in Amsterdam

EuroPride, this year held in Amsterdam, is a pan-European pride event hosted each year by a different city in Europe. It was an amazing experience to see so many people from the community gather in one city to celebrate. Amsterdam is unique in that the parade is on boats and barges through the canals as […]

Recap Eighty-eight Days In: The Netherlands

On Monday August 1, we grabbed a short flight from Prague into the Netherlands. We took a short break from seeing major world cities to rent a car and drive into a small town, Sommelsdijk, a couple hours south of Amsterdam by car. Sommelsdijk isn’t normally on a lot of tourists’ maps, but we had […]

Craig outlined our time in Prague in his post earlier this week. Here are a few photos from the visit.            

Recap Eighty-one Days In

On Friday, July 22, we headed from eastern Europe back toward the west, boarding a flight from Bucharest to Berlin. It was our first time flying on airberlin, a member of the Oneworld alliance. By using 7,500 British Airways Avios and a $24 copay per person, we were on our way. The British Airways loyalty program […]

In Pictures: Berlin Pride

I’m typically very nervous to talk to people, so for Berlin Pride, I decided to conquer that a bit and approached people to ask if I could take their pic. A scary thing!! The theme of this pride was “danke für nichts” which translates to “thanks for nothing.” Although progressive in many areas, Germany still […]

In Pictures: Bulgaria and Romania

We spent 5 days in Bulgaria, and while there, I was obsessed with the trams, so apologies for the large amount of pictures of them! In Romania, most of the time was spent wandering around Bucharest, but we did take a day-trip to see some historical sites related to Vlad Țepeș (aka Vlad the Impaler). For […]

Recap Seventy-two Days In: Eastern Europe

After a wonderful week in Germany, it was time to branch out and see a couple destinations outside of western Europe. On July 13, we took a nice flight from Frankfurt airport to Sofia, Bulgaria. We were excited to see eastern Europe, but it was kind of jarring to land and find ourselves unable to […]

Recap Sixty-three Days In

After witnessing Pride in Cologne and spending an extra couple days there enjoying the city, it became time to meet up with Charley’s mom Jan. Over the course of our trip, we’re hoping to meet as many family members as we can overseas, when they have the time available to come see us, and it […]

In Pictures: Whirlwind Week

From June 27th to July 6th, it was practically non-stop through multiple countries. We started by spending a few days in Brussels to relax and drink some great Belgian beer. We then took a train to Paris for Pride there. After less than 48 hours, we took a train early in the morning to catch […]

Recap Fifty-five Days In

From Brussels, we took a July 1 train to Paris (where we continued our run of free hotel nights), hoping to see what Pride festivities the city had to offer. You can look at Charley’s professional quality photos here, but just to summarize, it was a really great time. This was my third time being […]
